Faithful Unto Death (A Sugar Land Mystery)
Stephanie Jaye Evans
Everything looks perfect in green and groomed Sugar Land, Texas. It isn’t…
No one knows that better than Forrest “Bear” Wells, a former college football player now serving as a minister in this upscale Texas town, where famous athletes mix with cattle 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 child discovers a man face down 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 life … like the fact that that the murdered man’s son—and chief suspect—is currently dating his own teenage daughter, the daughter who won’t obey, and quotes scripture right back to defend her disobedience.
Bear made a promise to do the right thing. Someone else did, too. And the promise led to murder.
