According to this article:
Could President Ronald Reagan’s influence reach into the former “evil empire?” The media refers to a businessman on the rise as “Russia’s Reagan.” Unfortunately, others seek a return to the old ways, longing for Russia’s former “greatness.” The dispute becomes deadly. Conflict stretches from the Reagan Presidential Library in California to the White House to a Russian Orthodox monastery to the Kremlin.
Keating’s latest thriller – “Reagan Country: A Pastor Stephen Grant Novel” – serves up excitement, faith, betrayal, love and adventure, while also providing a salute to the legacy of Ronald Reagan.
Tom Edmonds, the producer of the official documentary of President Reagan (“Ronald Reagan: An American President”), says, “President Ronald Reagan’s legacy will live on in the U.S., around the world and in the pages of history. And now, thanks to Ray Keating’s ‘Reagan Country,’ it will live on in the world of fiction. ‘Reagan Country’ ranks as a page-turning thriller that pays homage to the greatest president of the twentieth century.”
Stephen Grant, pastor at St. Mary’s Lutheran Church on Long Island, a former Navy SEAL and onetime CIA operative, stands at the center of the tumult. He’s strengthened by his faith, wife, friends, and former CIA colleagues, while armed with a Glock and Holy Scripture. Grant is the kind of guy that Reagan would have appreciated.
Ray Keating explained, “The idea for this Pastor Stephen Grant novel hit me when visiting The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in early 2017. This book is not about Ronald Reagan per se. Rather, it’s a Pastor Stephen Grant thriller about both longtime and new characters in a hopefully interesting, compelling story. However, it also serves as something of a personal salute to President Reagan, and his impact and legacy.”
Woo hoo! Put that on your summer reading list!
