Synopsis:In her storied career as a Texas Ranger, Caitlin has confronted all manner of villains, but nothing that’s prepared her for the terrorist group ISIS’s pursuit of a devastating weapon on Lone Star State soil. The land in question lies on an Indian reservation where a drilling operation steeped in mystery and controversy is about to commence under the auspices of shadowy billionaire Cray Rawls.
But Rawls is only one of Caitlin’s problems. Her surrogate son Dylan, the oldest boy of her reformed outlaw lover Cort Wesley Masters, has joined the tribe to protest Rawls’ desecration of the sacred Indian lands. The same desecration that has unearthed an ancient evil Caitlin’s own great-great-grandfather fought nearly 150 years before. There’s also a twisted genius who’s uncovered the true nature of that evil, a young man with whom Caitlin shares a past now poised to deliver Armageddon from Texas’ canyonlands.
To save millions from a horrible fate at the hands of ISIS, Caitlin and Cort Wesley must sort through a web of death and deceit as tangled as the blood-soaked grounds of the reservation that hold a deadly secret. A secret that’s the source of a battle rooted in the past and now destined to determine the shape of the future.

When reading Strong Cold Dead you really need to pay attention, there is so much going on. So much characters that pop in and out, different storylines and different timelines. Before you know it you missed something. And that would be a shame,
This is the first book I read by Jon Land and this is the 8th book in the series, but it can be read as a stand alone.
Strong Cold Dead is a rollercoaster ride with lots of twists. There is so much happening that I just kept flipping the pages and yes sometimes I flipped a few pages back just to make sure I hadn't missed anything. But with a strong story like this that does not matter. It actually made me like the story more.
My rating: 4/5
