Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong returns in her most thrilling adventure yet in Jon Land's STRONG DARKNESS

1883: Texas Ranger William Ray Strong teams up with Judge Roy Bean to track down the Old West's first serial killer, who's stitching a trail of death along the railroad lines slicing their way through Texas.

The Present: Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong finds herself pursuing another serial killer whose methods are eerily similar to the one pursued by her great-grandfather almost a century-and-a-half before.

But that's just the beginning of her problems. The son of her boyfriend is nearly beaten to death at Brown University. The investigation leads back to Texas and to the Chinese high-tech company awarded the contract to build the US's 5G network. Li Zhen, the company's founder, counts that as the greatest achievement of his career, but it hides his true motivationsnothing less than China's total domination of the United States.

His plan is backed by elements of the Chinese underworld. Up against an army at Li's disposal, Caitlin blazes a violent trail across country and continent in search of secrets hidden in the past, but it's a secret from the present that holds the key. Darkness is coming, and only Caitlin Strong can find the light before it's too late.

“Caitlin Strong doesn't miss a trick, a target, or a bad guy. Plus, she's a Texas Ranger. One riot, one woman, same as it ever was. That's why I like her so much, that's why I'll read anything Jon Land writes.” —Stephen Hunter, New York Times bestselling author

“The appeal of a Caitlin Strong novel lies in its improbable, over-the-top action scenes. The history may intrigue you -- and the portrayal of America's vulnerability may scare you -- but mostly the novel is just rollicking no-holds-barred fun.” —Associated Press on Strong Rain Falling

“Jon Land is writing at the highest level; as always a great plot, interesting characters and a thrill ride that will keep your fingers glued to the pages for hours.” —The Strand Magazine
