Kirkus Review of Murderer's Row: "Action fans will find plenty to love..."

A review from Kirkus Review on Murderer's Row: A Pastor Stephen Grant Novel by Ray Keating declares:

“The author packs a lot into this frantically paced novel… a raft of action sequences and baseball games are thrown into the mix. The multiple villains and twists raise the stakes… Stephen remains an engaging and multifaceted character: he may still use, when necessary, the violence associated with his former professions, but he at least acknowledges his shortcomings—and prays about it. Action fans will find plenty to love here, from gunfights and murder sprees to moral dilemmas.”
