    A thrilling adventure that spans decades is Jon Land's ninth addition to the Caitlin Strong series. In 1944 Texas Ranger Earl Strong was dispatched to a holding camp for Germany's POWs in Hearne Texas. A prisoner had escaped after killing three men, bringing the attention of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Today, fifth generation Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong is dealing with the fallout of that investigation. A modern day Nazi movement has risen--like nothing seen since WWII.

    A thrilling adventure that spans decades is Jon Land's ninth addition to the Caitlin Strong series. In 1944 Texas Ranger Earl Strong was dispatched to a holding camp for Germany's POWs in Hearne Texas. A prisoner had escaped after killing three men, bringing the attention of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Today, fifth generation Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong is dealing with the fallout of that investigation. A modern day Nazi movement has risen--like nothing seen since WWII. Its leader has amassed an army and has access to a biological weapon that can spread worldwide annihilation. But he's never been up against a powerhouse like Caitlin Strong, who's just as unconventional and stubborn as her ancestors. Picking up where her grandfather left off, Caitlin will fight to the death to end the domination of a tyrannical madman. Pouring on the blistering Texas heat, this intense thrill ride is a real scorcher. Infused with action, enchanting characters, and a clever storyline, STRONG TO THE BONE combines compelling history and cutting-edge technology, creating a death-grip read that refuses to let go.

    I am so happy to be back into a rootin’ tootin’ Caitlin Strong adventure. The Texas Rangers and Nazis…doesn’t bode well for the Nazis. LOL

    Right off, Jon Land does what he does so well, makes me so curious and surprised about our prisoner of war camps in Texas during World War II, that questions arise. Why have I never thought of this before? Was I never taught in school? Is is true? I know a lot of people don’t care one way or another about prologues, but this one sure did it’s job. Sent me stra

    Right off, Jon Land does what he does so well, makes me so curious and surprised about our prisoner of war camps in Texas during World War II, that questions arise. Why have I never thought of this before? Was I never taught in school? Is is true? I know a lot of people don’t care one way or another about prologues, but this one sure did it’s job. Sent me straight to Google. I had to know more.

    I can picture Caitlin on top of the fire truck, spraying the rioters with the fire hose like Al Capone sprayed his enemies with his tommy gun. A young woman is in distress, possibly being raped, and nothing will stop Caitlin from going to her rescue.

    If you are not familiar with Caitlin, let me introduce you. She comes from a long line of Texas Rangers, but until she was raped in college, she had no plans to follow in their footsteps. Now…she’s a kickass, no holds barred force to be reckoned with. She goes in with guns blazing, her fists and legs pumping, doling out justice.

    I love that Jon Land is constantly challenging Caitlin in personal and professional ways.

    She teams up with her sweetie, Cort Wesley. He’s an ex Green Beret, maybe a bit tarnished, but that will only serve him well when he meets up with Armand Fiskar. Armand is the son of the man who created the Aryan Nation, only he has more grandiose plans.

    I am lovin’ Paz, an ex Venezuelan secret policeman, sent to kill Cort. Now they walk together. I love characters who have walked the wild side, yet are able to redeem themselves.

    And neo Nazis…smacks of reality.

    Cort, Paz, and even Caitlin, though she doesn’t acknowledge it, have a little bit of help from the paranormal.

    Moments to laugh, moments of anger, smiles and frowns, humanity in all its glory and disgust.

    Jon Land’s creative writing shows his humorous side, when he allows his characters to replace the Captain’s cigarettes with the candy kind. Do you remember eating them as a kid?

    The Aryan Nation, neo nazis, bioterrorism, organ transplants, weapons of mass destruction…so many underlying plots culminate in a blown out ending. I am a lifelong fan and eagerly await each and every story Jon Land has to tell.

    I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Strong to the Bone by Jon Land.

    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 Dead and I couldn't wait to read this one!

    Part of the reason that I like this series so much is the parallel storylines that have a connection with each other. In this, we get to meet Caitlin's grandfather Earl Stron

    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 Dead and I couldn't wait to read this one!

    Part of the reason that I like this series so much is the parallel storylines that have a connection with each other. In this, we get to meet Caitlin's grandfather Earl Strong who is hunting a murderer who killed three men in a Nazi PW camp in Texas. What is the connection? Well, Caitlin is hunting a neo-Nazi gang and there are some things that combine the case in the past with the one in the present. Also, Caitlin herself has to face her own past when a young girl is sexually assaulted, which bring back dark memories for her.

    As usual is the writing wonderful and the story engaging. I like Caitlin Strong very much, she's a strong woman and in this book, we learn what makes her join the Texas Rangers. Also, I love the quotations about Texas Rangers before every chapter. Reading this book really makes me wanna get to the unread books I have. I find the characters, both the ones in the present like Caitlin and Cort Wesley, etc. to Caitlin's own family of Texas Rangers that goes back several generations fascinating. This is a book that you definitely can read as a stand-alone, of course with the risk of being hooked!

    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 this series knows, Land tells his tale from historical and modern day perspectives. For this story, his Texas Ranger and friends take on the Nazis. What if Adolf Hitler had a son or a grandson ...

    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 Cort's relationship was a good one. Since, this was book nine in this series; they were settled as a couple, so their relationship did not need to be on full display. Which, for this type of book, I want the storyline

    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 Cort's relationship was a good one. Since, this was book nine in this series; they were settled as a couple, so their relationship did not need to be on full display. Which, for this type of book, I want the storyline to be more front and center than the romance.

    As a Texas Ranger, I did not expect anything less from this book. Regarding the violence, I was fine with it. It was not too gory in my eyes. Yet, as much as I liked the characters and the storyline, I found myself having a slight problem fully connecting to both elements. Thus, there were times when I had to re-read a section. Additionally, this book did not stick with me even after I had finished it. Although, I might try this series from the beginning.
