Story jumps around too much, and has more than usual violence. Each book seems to progress further from being even vaguely realistic. It is bordering on the edge of fantasy. I doubt that I will purchase another STRONG BOOK. Sorry, Jon, you can do better!

Review by Ryder Islington, Author of ULTIMATE JUSTICE, A Trey Fontaine Mystery This is one of the best police procedural/suspense/mystery books I've read in years. Mr. Land has done a great job of bringing characters to life, and for once, the good guy...er...gal...is truly good. Caitlin Strong is a Texas ranger, full of fire and ready to take out the bad guys...er...or gals...as need be. What a reborn concept--good and honest role models, full of integrity and strength. And though Caitlin is an excellent role model, she is also well-rounded and alive. I'd be proud to call her friend. Below you'll find a synopsis and an excerpt. Expect to be pulled in by a Texas ranger with a reformed convict for a boyfriend, and a hot temper for those who aren't willing to stand up and do the right thing. She faces politicians, criminals and uncooperative bosses with disdain and manages to stay alive, and employed. This is book is the fifth in the series, though it stands alone just fine. But I'll be going back to read the first four books ASAP.

If you enjoy unpredictable thrillers this is the book for you. Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong is trying to find out who is targeting the sons of her love interest Cort Masters who just happens to be in a Mexican prison. She also must figure out what his teenage sons have in common with the dead bodies found lined up on a drill rig.  Drug Cartel, nuclear weapons, and ghosts from the past are what you'll find in this action packed novel. Fast paced, refreshing, entertaining... Jon Land knows how to write!  I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I have read several of John Land's books but nothing from the Caitlin Strong books. I love how John can blend fiction with fact; history with present. It is a very unique ability but one that captures a reader from the very beginning of the story. Trust me - those first few pages are very important in his stories. The stage is set immediately and you will never have a dull moment and there are always surprises that leave you gasping. This is yet another masterfully created suspense filled mystery that is worth every moment of your time! Five stars again for sure! Thanks John. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was an action packed book from the moment I opened it until it ended! I actually didn't know that Texas still had Rangers and all the interesting information that was included in this book about Mexico and how the drug cartels got started was all news to me. Too bad vengeance always clouds people's minds and in this particular story, I never really understood why this woman killed her own sister and her family. The girls were born twins but the family was pretty poor at the time so one of their friends took one girl and adopted her. This girl that was adopted, Ana, unfortunately, became caught up in the drug cartels and she rose to fame and had a lot of money. But, still, she sought revenge for something her twin sister knew nothing about. Heck, she didn't even know she had one! So, they kill the sister and then they find out she had another sister and a family including 2 children. Those were also killed. To me, this makes absolutely no sense. It's not like they knew about her. I wasn't too thrilled with the killing of children and thankfully no graphic details are given, to which I am very happy about. Otherwise, it's an awesome book and if you enjoy nail biting suspense until the very end, then this book is for you!

Jon Land in his new book, "Strong Rain Falling" Book Five in the Blaine McCracken series published by Forge Books gives us a new adventure with Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong. From the back cover: Mexico, 1919: The birth of the Mexican drug trade begins with opium being smuggled across the U.S. border, igniting an all-out battle with American law enforcement in general and the Texas Rangers in particular. The Present: Fifth Generation Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong and her lover Cort Wesley Masters both survive terrifying gun battles. But this time, it turns out, the actual targets were not them, but Masters' teenage sons. That sets Caitlin and Cort Wesley off on a trail winding through the past and present with nothing less than the future of the United States hanging in the balance. Along the way they will confront terrible truths dating all the way back to the Mexican Revolution and the dogged battle Caitlin's own grandfather and great-grandfather fought against the first generation of Mexican drug dealers. At the heart of the storm soon to sweep away America as we know it, lies a mastermind whose abundant power is equaled only by her thirst for vengeance. Ana Callas Guajardo, the last surviving member of the family that founded the Mexican drug trade, has dedicated all of her vast resources to a plot aimed at the U.S.'s technological heart. This time out, sabotage proves to be as deadly a weapon as bombs in a battle Caitlin must win in cyberspace as well. Her only chance to prevail is to short-circuit a complex plan based as much on microchips as bullets. Because there's a strong rain coming and only Caitlin and Cort Wesley can stop the fall before it's too late. I am new to the adventures of Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong. The minute I read that she is a modern-day Texas Ranger I knew this was going to be exciting. I just didn't know how exciting. For me the minute you say Texas Ranger I think of every Western I have ever read or seen and none of them were bad and I knew this would be no exception. "Strong Rain Falling" is one huge action-packed thriller from page one. A strong rain can overflow highways and destroy property. A high intensity situation can have the same effect as a strong rain. Ana Callas Guajardo wants to get revenge for an event from 1919 and she is just crazy enough to destroy the United States in the process. This is pure excitement. Mr. Land obviously likes to tell a good story,and this one is as good as it gets. You will not be disappointed with "Strong Rain Falling". It is a roaring adventure from start to finish. Now while I wait for the next Caitlin Strong novel I have four others I need to catch up on. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Partners In Crime.
