In Sugar Land, Texas, thirteen year old Jessica Min finds attorney Graham Garcia dead on Bridgewater Country Club Golf Course.  Police Detective James Wanderley leads the homicide inquiry.  He learns that former U of Texas Longhorn football player turned preacher Walker “Bear” Wells met with the victim a week ago. 

 

However, Bear refuses to reveal what they discussed as he insists he must honor his pledge of confidentiality even with Graham dead.  Frustrated Wanderley insists the homicide ended the vow of silence.  Already overworked with church business, Bear gets deeper involved with the trouble Graham family and learns one of his two daughters is dating the chief suspect, the deceased’s son Alex.  Bear reluctantly decides to investigate.

 

Intelligent, caring and flippant even when invoking the Lord; Bear is a wonderful amateur sleuth as he follows clues around a seemingly paradise.  The whodunit is low keyed but fun to follow as Bear escorts the reader around Sugar Land as the hero finds out his theological tomes may sell better on Amazon due to the murder case, but he is no Stephanie meyer.
