Everything looks perfect in Sugar Land, Texas. But it's not.

No one knows that better than Walker "Bear" Wells, a former college football player now serving as a minister in this upscale Texas town, where famous athletes mix with ranchers and the local parish priest wants to arm wrestle. It's a beautiful master-planned community, but people can't be held to neighborhood restrictions, and Bear deals daily with emotional and spiritual problems, in both his flock and his own family.

But never murder. Not until a man is found dead on the nearby golf course, his skull crushed.

Bear has no interest in playing detective. His job is praying for the dead, not searching for their killers. But every time he turns around, another facet of the investigation tangles with his own the fact that the murdered man's son--and a main suspect--is currently dating his own rebellious teenage daughter.

He made a promise to do the right thing. But keep­ing promises may be what led to murder...

First in a new mystery series with a second book due in 2013. I loved this book and the characters were great. Walker (Bear) Wells is a Texas preacher and former football player who becomes a reluctant detective when the husband of one of his flock is murdered on a golf course. Bear is also so busy with other people's problems he sometimes misses those closer to home. He also has an interesting adversarial relationship with a local detective; their initial meeting is a very "Columbo" moment. Bear narrates this story and I swear I can hear (a young) Andy Griffith in my head ( I know-wrong state) Bear makes some pretty amusing observations.
