New Thriller from Ray Keating Titled “The River: A Pastor Stephen Grant Novel”
Stephen Grant once used lethal skills for the Navy SEALs and the CIA. Now, years later, he’s a pastor. In THE RIVER: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL by Ray Keating, how does this man of action and faith react when the fight gets personal?
Ray Keating has been called “a great novelist” by the host of “BookTalk” radio, and Amazon.com reviewers have compared his thrillers to the works of Clancy, Ludlum, Grisham, Cussler, and Morrell. Once again, in THE RIVER, Keating wields his story-telling skills by serving up a fast-paced adventure, rich characters, faith, humor, big ideas, and murder.
Some refer to Las Vegas as Sin City. But the sins being committed in THE RIVER are not what one might typically expect. How far can Grant go – or will he go – to save the woman he loves? Will he seek justice or revenge, and can he tell the difference any longer?
Discover Pastor Stephen Grant and his world of intrigue, faith, action, love and violence.
