“Strong Enough to Die: A Caitlin Strong Novel” is the latest by Jon Land.
According to the AP: “The book is a page-turner, the pace blistering, the characters well-drawn and the action hot. The plot is timely, exploiting fears of border smuggling, torture, high-tech snooping into private lives and out-of-control private security companies.

PW notes: “The revelations are constant, the characters compelling and the action fast and furious.”
