DAVENPORT, Fla. - Floridant -- Subversion: An Alliance of Saint Michael Novel is a new, nail-biting work of historical fiction from Ray Keating. With the Nazis on the rise in Germany, the Alliance of Saint Michael is called into action to aid a Jewish businessman and art collector in Berlin, while also countering pro-Nazi rumblings in America.

The Alliance of Saint Michael brings together Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican and Orthodox men and women with varied backgrounds and assorted talents to work against the two most significant threats to Christianity and civilization at the dawn of the 1930s - communism and fascism.


In Subversion, a priest is murdered on Long Island. Meanwhile, in Germany, a Jewish businessman and his wife are targeted for violence by members of the Nazi Party. What do these two events possibly have in common? Members of the Alliance of Saint Michael find themselves at the center of each situation, as they work to aid those in danger while countering Nazi lies within the Church.

Subversion is a work of historical fiction that hits hard on matters like antisemitism and politics corrupting the Church, while also being filled with characters that readers can care about and respect, thrilling action, love and friendship, and reflections on faith and helping others.

Ray Keating, who also has penned 19 Pastor Stephen Grant thrillers and mysteries (with more coming), said, "As I get deeper into the Alliance of Saint Michael series, I not only get to write some exciting historical fiction, but also explore how various individuals think and react with evil on the rise in what's supposed to be a 'civilized' place. And yes, these are questions that have long plagued and continue to challenge humanity."

About Cathedral, Kirkus Reviews said, "Keating's book is vigorously paced overall; there's no deficit of action or intrigue in these pages..."

And BookViral Reviews called it "an addictively entertaining five-star read." In addition, Self-Publishing Review gave the book 4 stars, and said, "A stellar depiction of time period and tension."
