reviewed by Raymond J. Brown

Murderer's Row is the fifth in the series of Ray Keating's Pastor Stephen Grant novels, all of which may be read singly, but are best consumed, as were Tom Clancy's books (whose style and format the author does copy), in order. The protagonist is a Lutheran pastor who had formerly been a Navy SEAL and CIA operative, whose past seems to return to his present life with surprising frequency.

Murderer's Rowinvolves the extraction of an Iraqi Christian family, the Iraqi son's arrival in minor league baseball, terrorist revenge, the business of baseball, political land grabs for stadia, and murderers for hire. The action takes place mostly on Long Island, where the author himself actually lives.
