A “western” flavor with great historical details and action from the Texas Rangers is merged within an thrilling techno thriller, in Jon Land’s Sturdy Adequate To Die. In my opinion, it really is a ought to-read!
Caitlin Sturdy, a fifth-generation Ranger, has had a single too many close calls–the last a single resulting in the death of a dear friend and partner. Leaving the Rangers, she goes back to school to get her degree for counseling and gets a job at the Survivor Center for Victims of Torture. Even though the director is uncertain about her working with victims, when Caitlin is brought in to see one particular of her possible patients, and recognizes him, she is pulled into an experience to be faced like no other she has ever recognized and assures the director that she will perform difficult to take care of the job in order to be in a position to care for the man.
As she begins her new task, she learns that Cort Wesley Masters, the man who had been the leader at the ambush wherever her partner was killed, has been released due to a new test for the DNA that had proved him not guilty, and he was coming following her for revenge.
They meet when he finds out where she is operating and goes to the Survivor Center, only to uncover that the facility is underneath attack and Caitlin is the only staff member left alive and she is fighting to save her patient. In a split-second choice, Cort forgets his original plan and operates along with Caitlin to get rid of the attackers!
Reclaiming her Ranger’s badge is one particular element of Caitlin’s initial acts soon after this massacre. As Caitlin discovers that Cort was set up and desires to discover out who falsely accused him, she also learns that, by guarding her patient, who other individuals are trying to kidnap, she, Cort, and his two children, are now all below attack.
Cort and Caitlin are forced into an uneasy alliance as they learn much more and more about almost everything occurring.
Caitlin and Cort are terrific characters and I hope they will be in long term books nevertheless, one particular minor character, Guillermo Paz, stole a lead part for me-a mercenary/hit man, Paz visits numerous churches and confesses his actions to the dismay of neighborhood priests. His most current job has brought him from South America by the “head man” and is told to get rid of all witnesses. Nonetheless, when he finds Caitlin, protecting the sons of Cort Wesley, he leaves with no killing them-and later revisits a nearby church. Paz has discovered his function in life!
Powerful Enough To Die by Jon Land is refreshingly diverse as the part of Texas Rangers is blended with hi-tech murder. A single of the greatest I’ve study!
