Keating does it again! He provides another solid volume of the Pastor Stephen Grant Novel series. This time it involves wine tasting and counterfeit wines. Although it follows a familiar PSG Novel format (starting with an episode from Grant's former CIA days with relevance to this novel as well as weaving of previous well developed characters), it turns subtly and skillfully to the ending crescendo.
Relationships abound in Keating's writing, from former CIA/FBI times to Christian relationships to bonds among the criminal elite. These all intertwine with new characters and relationships emerging in this novel. A critical one here is Grant's training under wine/poker expert Larry Banner who is sold very expensive counterfeit wine. Grant's finely acquired wine tasting skills come into play here as he takes notice of distinct hint of vanilla in a Merlot. Intrigued? You should be as this novel again grabs hold of the reader and accelerates to a unexpected ending.
