The BookViral Review:

Another jackpot for Keating in the form of his new novella, For Better, For Worse, as we re-join Pastor Steven Grant in another nail-biting, wholly original tale of retribution and revenge.

Set against a background of wedding preparations between Phil Lucena and Jessica West, For Better, For Worse is no saccharine love story. Both tough law enforcement agents, they carry a weighty history and even more weighty friends. This has not gone unnoticed by an arch-enemy, the wife of arms dealer taken down by the team ten years previously, who is not about to let a perfect opportunity for revenge go to waste.

A thrilling and fast-paced start sets the scene faultlessly as Keating leads us from the charged atmosphere of covert operations to the warmth of friendship and love until we are once again thrust into the dangerous business of CDM International Strategies and Security. With his plotline down to a fine art, Keating demonstrates his skill as he executes his story in a perfect spiral of light and dark.

One of the great pleasures of a Ray Keating novel is the ease with which you can slip within its pages in comfort and settle into the new adventures of familiar characters who you have no choice but to invest in. Whilst all players maintain a strong presence, Steven Grant remains a stalwart protagonist through the series and once again earns his stripes, acting as the thread which binds them together into a tight-knit team, hell-bent on upholding justice at any cost.

Often, a pitfall of Christian fiction is that it can become too preachy or detached from the storyline; however, Keating, as ever, has pitched this just right, ably balancing Christian values with the thrill of the chase whilst not sacrificing either style or narrative.

For Better, for Worse may be a quick read, but it is nevertheless a highly satisfying one, unburdened by trite genre tropes, but with all the gripping touch points his readers have come to expect.
