Stu Carlson, minister with a thirst for scotch and a cheating wife, gives up his duties and takes up bartending. He tends bar at the Longhorn Bar in Travis City, Texas. His life is routine until he serves Andrew Washburn a drink of scotch laced with poison. The police arrest Daniel Lackland, a talented young artist and a customer at the Longhorn. Andrew was Daniel's former teacher and is now married to Daniel's ex-wife.
Although Stu is aware that Daniel hated Andrew, he is convinced Daniel is innocent. Though the two are not close friends, Stu decides to take it upon himself to prove Daniel's innocence. The police don't seem too interested in checking into other suspects.
Stu identifies with Daniel because they both had been the victim of a cheating wife. Daniel asks Stu to pray with him. This takes Stu by surprise. When Daniel tells his mother that Stu is his minister, he is even more surprised. Once Stu starts his investigation nothing can stop him. The police warn him to stay away from Andrew's family members and associates. Stu receives even stronger threats from others that lead him to believe his life is in danger. He keeps on following his leads and uncovers a deeper mystery than he could have ever imagined.
I liked Stu and hope to read more Stu Carlson books.
