    Land always finds something unique with which to develop his stories. For this, he wanted to challenge himself, as well as his lead character, Caitlin Strong. That element is sexual assault. Without giving anything away, I will say that his telling was done well. As anyone who reads...

    ?You may be able to walk on water, Ranger, but quicksand?s a whole other thing,? a character advised Caitlin Strong early on in Strong to the Bone. And quicksand is pretty much what Caitlin finds herself mired in here in the superb ninth book to feature the stalwart Texas Rang...

    George Orwell once wrote that ?People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.? This is the ninth book in the Caitlin Strong series and I do believe I would have gotten more out of this story if I'd read the other ...

    This is my first introduction to Caitlin and this series. Despite having not read the prior novels in this series, I still was able to jump right into this book. In the beginning I was really into this book. Caitlin is a strong female heroine. I love a good female lead. Caitlin and...

    After reading Strong Cold Dead, book eight in the series last year did I buy the first two books in the series. I haven't gotten to them yet, but I plan to have a Caitlin Strong marathon someday! Anyway, when I got the chance to read this book did I not hesitate. I loved Strong Cold De...

    Graphic Audio's production of this western - murder mystery is a wonderfully complicated tale set in 1944 and present day Texas. Fifth generation Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong, granddaughter for Early Strong, investigates mysterious drug-related deaths that lead back to Armand Fisker,...

    The story begins in Hearne, Texas, in 1944. As in all of the Strong books, Mr. Land writes a rousing contemporary story while rooting his Texas Ranger based adventures in the past. Caitlin Strong, as the first female Texas Ranger, has taken up the job where her father and grandfather l...

    Buckle up! Badass Caitlin Strong, Texas Ranger, is back and taking readers on another thrill ride of plots and subplots. This is the 9th novel in the series but easily reads as a stand alone. After reading STRONG COLD DEAD, I jumped at the chance to read this book! This story spans ...

    I absolutely LOVE finding an incredible author that generates such an interest in their novels, that once you begin them, not only are you transported into the story as a bystander, but you simply can't put it down. Such is the case with my introduction to Jon Land's series of Caitlin ...

    This is no cozy mystery. The body count is high and so is the action. Caitlin is the kind of gutsy heroine I would want to be. She's a rogue Ranger, going off to work on her own. Her superior puts up with it because he knows she'll get it done. The plot in this novel is particularly...

    I've read the entire series. I think the story lines are thought through and researched but the stilted conversations really annoyed me. Everyone goes by a nickname and tries too hard to be macho. Doubt if I will continue with the next book. ...

    This is the first Jon Land book I've read and now I'd love to go back and read the entire Caitlin Strong collection! She is an incredibly strong character -- it doesn't take you long to discover just how deep that strength is. She's continuing the tradition as working as a Texas Ranger...

    +++Nazis in Texas? You bet. During WWII there were German prisoner of war camps all through the state. This novel touches on that, on conspiracies nation & world wide, and on family, clandestine government involvement and sexual assault. Caitlin of course is at the forefront in all...

    2.5 stars not bad. i'm not too keen on stories w/nazi's. but i did think adding the element of caitlin being a victim of rape in her youth was interesting. and when will Dylan just get a normal life? that poor kid keeps attracting trouble. i liked how the story w/his father in ...

    17+ like most of this series. This one, however, is special. Strong to the Bone takes on the most intense topics of any Caitlin Strong book I've read, dealing with both rape and racism. I can only imagine how difficult it must have been for the author to put this story onto the page, g...

    Been a while that I read a Caitlin Strong novel. Land has a similar approach linking her cases with her father's or grandfathers. While I enjoyed the book, getting a little old in its approach. Maybe I'm cynical today! ...
