Strong at the Break by Jon Land


Strong at the BreakLast week Virginia and I took the boys to the coast for a few days to camp with friends from our homeschooling community. At the last minute, hoping to have time to read, I grabbed the new Chris Kuzneski ARC I had just began and the latest of Jon Land’s Caitlin Strong mysteries and threw them into my bag.I’ll share more about Kuzneski’s The Secret Crown later in the year (it doesn’t publish until January). Suffice it to say it’s the newest Payne and Jones adventure, and one hell of a thrill ride.   

Now I am reluctant to admit, but Strong at the Break is the first Caitlin Strong novel I have read. It’s the third book in the series following Strong Justice and Strong Enough to Die, and I had planned to read them in order.

I have always enjoyed Jon’s work and have read many of his 30+ books over the years, but this one blew me away. Caitlin Strong is a 5th generation Texas Ranger, who can shoot and think at the same time. From the snow covered Canadian border, to the nation’s capital, and into the heart of Mexico, her pursuit of justice knows no boundaries.

Read this and all other Jon Land novels! I have added many of them to our sale, and included some of Chris Kuzenski’s as well.



Book Review – “The Prophecy” by Chris Kuzneski


The next exciting, action-packed thriller from the national bestselling author Chris Kuzneski.
Michel de Nostredame, the French apothecary commonly known as Nostradamus, has gained a cult-like following, a loyal band of enthusiasts who credit him with predicting numerous world events-the Great Fire of London, the rise of Napoleon and Hitler, and the nuclear destruction of Hiroshima. However, his most important collection of prophetic verses has remained hidden…until now.


“If the truth be known, I have always been an easy mark for a good adventure.  I eagerly wait for each new release by Clive Cussler, Jack DuBrul, James Rollins and Steve Berry, just to name a few.

Book after book these authors deliver suspense, intrigue, and offer creative answers to some of history’s greatest mysteries.  With the world frequently hanging in the balance their heroes save mankind from the latest villain, while simultaneously unraveling ancient riddles.

So how could I resist when I learned of a new author with a story lauded by Jim Rollins, Doug Preston, Steve Berry, Gayle Lynds and Chris Kuzneski?  I read an advance and was knocked out.  Morrison brings a new voice to adventure, and I predict will earn his own place in the genre.  I know I already have a place on my bookshelf reserved for his books!

Join me in welcoming Boyd Morrison to our community of collectors.” – John Hutchinson, co-owner of VJ Books



ark-morrison1Legend has it that somewhere on Mt. Ararat sits the remains of Noah’s Ark.

In a genre that has shown us the whereabouts of the Island of Atlantis, King Solomon’s Mine, Alexander’s Library, and the gold of the Incas, it was only a matter of time for The Ark itself to see daylight.

The only question was “who would find it first?”  Would it be Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Jack DuBrul, or Steve Berry? No, they are all beaten to the punch by newcomer Boyd Morrison!

Morrison delivers all of the thrills we’ve come to expect is his debut novel, The Ark (Touchstone, May 2010).  The story begins with archaeologist Hasad Arvadi announcing that his lifelong search for Noah’s Ark is about to bear fruit as he struggles to record his final thoughts, trapped in a darkened chamber, succumbing to multiple gun shot wounds.

The story roars to life as Arvadi’s daughter, Dilara Kenner, also an archaeologist is marked for death by the same dark force that has taken her father’s life.  She teams up with Tyler Locke, an engineer whose past may offer clues to a plot so sinister that it signals an end to the human experience.  Locke and Kenner race against time to unravel a vast conspiracy led by a villain so real it will make your skin crawl.  Can they stop him in time, and how does the story of the flood and Noah’s Ark fit in?

Move over Dirk Pitt, stand aside Phil Mercer, watch out Cotton Malone, Tyler Locke is on the scene promising Boyd Morrison a commanding place at the adventure table.

The Ark  has it all, a tall dark hero with unsurpassed skills and incredible timing, a beautiful archeologist who can handle herself in a fight, a wealthy bad guy with plans to dominate the world, and clues to a ancient mystery that will have you rethinking human history.

The Ark is one hell of a ride.
