STRONG AS STEEL: Jon Land’s 10th Caitlin Strong Thriller Set for April 2019 Release

Strap in tight and get your pre-order-clicking fingers ready, because Jon Land’s tenth Caitlin Strong book has just been announced. 

Following last year’s Strong to the Bone, which saw Caitlin take on a vile gang of neo-Nazis, Land will bring back his fan-favorite Texas Ranger for more action in Strong as Steel, currently slated to come out on April 23, 2019.

1994: Texas Ranger Jim Strong investigates a mass murder on a dusty freight train linked to a mysterious, missing cargo for which no record exists.

The Present: His daughter, fifth-generation Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong, finds herself on the trail of that same cargo when skeletal remains are found near an excavation site in the Texas desert. She’s also dealing with the aftermath of a massacre that claimed the lives of all the workers at a private intelligence company on her watch.

These two cases are connected by a long-buried secret, one that men have killed and died to protect. Caitlin and her outlaw lover Cort Wesley Masters must prove themselves to be as strong as steel to overcome a bloody tide that has been rising for centuries.


For those readers looking to get their Jon Land fix sooner than next April, his next Murder She Wrote novel, which he co-authored with Jessica Fletcher, comes out on November 6th. Otherwise, Strong as Steel is currently available for pre-order wherever books are sold.
