CENTER, MORICHES, N.Y., May 23, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- 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 very 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, and action.

CNBC's Larry Kudlow said, "Ray Keating has created a fascinating and unique character in Pastor Grant." Best-selling novelist Paul L. Maier noted, "Only Ray Keating could come up with a character like Pastor Stephen Grant."

Ray Keating's Stephen Grant is a hero that Christians and conservatives can embrace.
