Description

Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong returns in Jon Land's Strong Cold Dead, a thriller with heart-stopping action and a high-stakes terrorist plot
The terrorist organization ISIS is after a deadly toxin that could be the ultimate weapon of mass destruction. The same toxin holds the potential to eradicate cancer. There is a frantic race to see who can get to it first, even as Caitlin Strong begins to assemble the disparate pieces of a deadly puzzle.
At the center of that puzzle is an Indian reservation where a vengeful tycoon is mining the toxin, disguising his effort as an oil-drilling operation. This is the same reservation where Caitlin's great-great-grandfather, also a Texas Ranger, once waged a similar battle against the forces of John D. Rockefeller.
In her highest-stakes adventure yet, Caitlin Strong faces off against a host of adversaries that just might include the beautiful Comanche girl with whom the son of her ex-outlaw boyfriend Cort Wesley Masters has fallen in love, along with a mythic monster culled from Native American folklore that the tribe believes has risen to protect its land. The lives of those Caitlin loves most are threatened by the villains she's pursuing; her own moral code is challenged. The fate of both the country and the state she loves is dangling on the precipice of a strong cold death.

        August 22, 2016
        As shown by Land’s complex eighth Caitlin Strong novel (after 2015’s Strong Light of Day), the fifth-generation Texas Ranger has the cowboy cool and the gunfighter bravado of a Louis L’Amour hero, just like her legendary great-great-grandfather, Steeldust Jack Strong. In a flashback to 1874, Steeldust Jack inspects the mangled body of a fancily dressed gunman near a Comanche reservation outside Austin. Steeldust Jack’s saga provides counterpoint to the case that Caitlin is working on in the present day, which involves terrorists (both homegrown and foreign), Canadian Mounties, boarding school bullies, Comanches, Bingo-playing old folks, an American president, ghosts, giant bats, and much else in this rich tapestry. Land skillfully pulls all the disparate strands together and delivers a rootin’ tootin’ grand finale. Whether kicking bad guy butt or giving a commencement address, Caitlin gets the job done efficiently and with great aplomb. Agent: Natalia Aponte, Natalia Aponte Literary Agency.

        Starred review from September 15, 2016
        Caitlin Strong is back and better than ever in this latest in Land's popular series. Her job as a Texas Ranger has always put her in jeopardy, but this time the people she loves are also at risk. Caitlin's boyfriend's son has fallen in love with a Comanche girl with a secret agenda, and the reservation where she lives is at the heart of a conspiracy that has ties to ISIS. At the heart of the plan is a toxin that has the potential to kill millions but could also provide the ultimate cure for cancer. Land is a master of action scenes, and this time the entire novel is really one long action scene that never stops escalating in tension and mystery. Caitlin is the quintessential action hero, both ruthless and unstoppable while at the same time realistic and sympathetic. Thrillers don't get better than this. Readers who love pure action mixed with nicely detailed procedural elements should consider Strong Cold Dead and the previous books in the Caitlin Strong series mandatory reading.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
