Listen to the Interview with Jon Land about his new novel, Takedown

Bestselling author Jon Land shares his newest book, Takedown

Jon Land is the bestselling author of over 25 novels. He graduated from Brown University in 1979 Phi Beta Kappa and Magna cum Laude and continues his association with Brown as an alumni advisor.

Takedown Book Summary:

Takedown by Jon LandJeff Buck thought he’d seen it all. Twenty years working undercover in the netherworld of drugs had left him burned out and grateful to assume the quiet job of police chief in the small town of Reminderville, Ohio. That is, until a simple domestic assault case turns out to have links to the murder of a drug runner in upstate New York and a syndicate smuggling billions of dollars in drugs across the U.S.-Canada border.

As Buck reluctantly plunges back into his old world of death and deceit, he uncovers a complex chain linking the Hells Angels to the Russian Mafia in a plot to use Native American tribal land to smuggle their deadly wares into the United States.  Buck’s efforts lead to an unprecedented slew of indictments on both sides of the border and prison terms for even the kingpins, toppling an empire once deemed invincible.

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.
