Fifth-generation Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong returns in an adventure with roots in a gunfight where her father shot down the cult-like leader of a separatist church.
Two decades later, that man's son, Malcolm Arno, has become head of a militia movement bent on unleashing chaos and anarchy across the country. With all the guns and money he needs to wage a second Civil War, nothing seems to be standing in Arno's way. Until he runs afoul of Caitlin Strong.
Already mired in one investigation of drug smuggling over the U.S.-Canadian border and another involving an Iraqi war veteran who claims the army is trying to kill him, Caitlin finds herself embroiled in the search for the kidnapped son of former outlaw Cort Wesley Masters. When the missing boy's trail leads to Malcolm Arno's Texas compound, the three cases converge in an explosion of violence that will put Caitlin to the ultimate test.
From the frozen rivers of Canada to the desert wastelands of Mexico, the stage has been set for a battle like none Caitlin has ever faced before, where the stakes are nothing less than the survival of America as we know it.

An outlandish, violent plot sets up a high-stakes showdown in Land's third novel featuring Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong (after Strong Justice). Three cases that at first appear unrelated put Caitlin on a collision course with Malcolm Arno's Patriot Sun organization. Arno is the son of Maxwell Arno, whose Church of the Redeemer cult was brought down by Strong's Ranger father, Jim. A stakeout while on a joint Canadian-U.S. drug force in Quebec ends in a bloody confrontation with Hell's Angels; Iraq war vet Mark John Serles claims the Army targeted him with the IED that blew off his legs; and the 16-year-old son of Strong's friend, outlaw Cort Wesley Masters, goes missing. This perfect storm of events sends Strong from Canada to Mexico to Washington, D.C., in an effort to prevent Arno's attempts to unleash the deadliest arsenal ever employed against domestic targets by American "patriots." Series fans should enjoy the plentiful fireworks.
