    Great book for MMA fans!

    Jon Land has taken us Mixed Martial Arts fans for a ride. I love this sport and his knowledge of it kept me intrigued. It was also a great novel of suspense. This is his second book I have read. He keeps the pages turning. I finished it in 2 days.

    Catlin Strong's character lives up to her name for this new series.

    Land's new series has a kick-ass female lead that carries the reader to the end of the story wanting more.

    This is a strong, enjoyabe and entertaining thriller

    A fifth generation Texas Ranger, Caitlin Strong knows law enforcement is part of her DNA makeup. That is until the border incident near El Paso in 2004 left Caitlin with doubts about law enforcement after her sixty year old partner and family friend Charlie Weeks died and she barely made it in a nasty shootout with mules. She was so traumatized by the episode she becomes the first member of her proud family to quit.

    Five years later, Caitlin remains haunted by the border ambush. She feels guilt for letting down her family and for simply surviving. Finally seeking closure, she investigates the incident that destroyed her life. The first stunner she uncovers is her spouse Peter Goodwin is alive living in a special hospital that treats only torture victims. She soon begins to uncover a sinister diabolical plot involving super-patriot Harmon Delladonne and his security firm MacArthur-Rain. When her efforts place her on Delladonne's endangered species list, she turns to her former enemy, outlaw Cort Wesley Masters as Delladonne has ties to Mexican Mafiosi chief Emiliato Valdez Garza.

    This is a strong thriller that cleverly ties the Global War on Terrorism in the Middle East with the human, drugs, and weapons smuggling back and forth between the USA and Mexico. The story line is fast-paced and Caitlin makes a remarkable heroine. Although the climax seems to have too many purposes besides tying up this tale like setting up a sequel, fans will enjoy Jon Land who always provides an entertaining thriller.

    Review of Strong Enough To Die by Jon Land

    By Russell Ilg (bookseller and collector)<BR/><BR/>This is going to be one of the best thrillers of the year. I always hear people say they could not put a book down and have found very few that meet that test. Well, this is that book. It's a very different thriller, using today's Texas Rangers with a lot of history of the earlier years of the Rangers. You are taken for the ride of your life in a novel that never lets up and that you cannot put down. Caitlin Strong is one of the greatest main characters that I have come across in many a year. I almost wish Jon might have more stories for her and her outlaw partner, Cort Wesley Masters. What a pair! You will not believe it till you read it. This is one of his greatest novels of the year so far and that was after reading Land's THE SEVEN SINS which was super. You'll want to mark the calender for this one, since it will be the one to beat in 2009 and they don't get any better. Caitlin is chasing demons from her past as she tries to solve one of the greatest threats she has ever encounted, while having to team up with the one person you would never imagine against a super villain who really wants, and needs, her dead. You can not even begin to believe where this story will take you. It's a must read for every and all thriller fans out there, even if it's the only one you read this year. This novel has got to put Jon Land on the top of the list of your spring and summer reading list. I read 3-4 books a week and so far have not read anything that even comes close to this huge new thriller. Make sure you get out and meet Jon when he is on tour and get your book signed. But be warned: you are going to want to keep this one in a special place because it's the best thriller of the year.
