    One thought on “Key Witness”

    1. Courtesy of NetGalley, publishers Publishing, Thomas & Mercer and author Sandra Bolton. Many thanks for making the advance copy of this book available to me at my request in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.Key Witness is a murder mystery investigation involving multiple stakeholders, the Italian Mafia, the Mexican Mafia, the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang and a few others thrown in to make it a complete pot pouri.As a murder mystery cum chase I would rate it just about 3. But what [...]

    2. A Jewish musician from New York, a female cop with the Navajo Tribal Police, her unemployed, alcoholic, gay brother; a three-legged dog named Patch, and a "skinny, gray haired" nurse named Sally who boasts she can "shoot the short hairs off a pig's balls blindfolded." These are the main characters of Sandra Bolton's latest mystery, "Key Witness: A Southwest Mystery," who inadvertently become entangled with the Aryan Brotherhood and the Mexican Mafia. Not since Tony Hillerman have we seen a write [...]

    3. Goodthe story line was well writtene lives of many different law enforcement were involved and the mof and gangs were so at war.

    4. Hold on, I'm *eating*.EDIT: I have no idea why I didn't come back to write my review.I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review4.5/5This is the kind of book I would definitely shelf as AdventureI love the characters - especially the diversity. Abe was slightly stupid at some points but likeable. The plot was great and it went in a steady pace. It was the kind of plot that was not predictable but not unexpected either. It travels the line in between.The romance was cute but th [...]

    5. Fantastical storyline; a fun readI thoroughly enjoyed this jaunt through the Southwest with Jewish pianist Abe Freeman and his three legged dog, Patch. Abe is running from dark memories in his past in New Jersey, driving west, doing odd jobs. He stops at a campsite in New Mexico and ends up sharing a joint with a drifter - who ends up dead. And evidence points to Abe being the killer.Thus starts a convoluted story that has Abe meeting a Navajo Nation policewoman, members of the Aryan brotherhood [...]

    6. I am not big on mystery novels at all, however, Bolton caught my attention with Key Witness. Once I started reading it the more enthralled I became. This was an interesting book, and although it was hard to see a realness at times, I couldn't put it down. The character development is amazing! Skillful and engaging. Sandra paints a fantabulous picture with her words that you can almost touch. The landscape, people, etc. All executed to near perfection.The story seemed to be well thought out and w [...]

    7. 3.5 stars, rounded up. Overall, a good story, set in New Mexico, mostly in the 4 corners area, but also some in the southwest portion of the state, in the Gila area.

    8. After his wife's death, Abe Freeman sets off for goodness knows where with his 3-legged dog, Patch and ends up being held on suspicion of murder. This is where he meets Navajo police officer Emily Etcitty and together they solve the crime - and the mystery of the key - and clear his name. It didn't grip me or hold me in its thrall but this is still an easy and enjoyable enough read if you are not looking for anything too taxing.

    9. Not badI had low expectations but wanted a mystery/cop procedural. I like to read books about NM and Navajo country. This series is ok. Emily Etcitty was not the real protagonist. A cast of interesting characters and good location descriptions .

    10. Good read. Hard to put down!Always enjoy a tale that moves quickly from one scene to next. As much about human nature as anything. Who are we? And why are we here. Where will our journey take us.

    11. Picked this book up in Raton, NM while waiting on the train to arrive. Found out from the store owner that the book was written by a local author. The book was also recommended by people in the store as well. Well written book that moves quickly and is an enjoyable read.

    12. Not up to her usual high standardSandra Bolton was a new author for me, but in this book, she has let herself down. This book is not what I had expected.

    13. (I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)Heading west for the serene deserts of New Mexico with his three-legged dog, Patch, Abe Freeman hopes to escape the memories of his girlfriend’s lost battle with cancer. He expects his cross-country journey to be healing, not life-threatening. And he definitely doesn’t plan to wind up as the main suspect when a drifter he meets along the way, Easy Jackson, gets murdered.When Abe’s lost knife turns up at [...]

    14. Kept you going interesting storylineGreat read loved the characters! Educated you on the Indian way of life in an interesting way! Great storyline! Kept you interested!

    15. Interesting ReadNot a bad storyline and keeps your attention. If your into love and crime this is definitely worth reading! Give it a try.

    16. Key Witness by Sandra Bolton is gaining mixed reviews which shows that readers are talking about this book.A cross country trip starting in New Jersey with Patch, his three legged dog, Abe Freeman, an unassuming gentle Jewish man seeks mind and spiritual healing after he successfully assisted in his girlfriend’s death when she was dying with cancer. The trip into the desert of New Mexico goes terribly wrong when he becomes a suspect in the murder of Easy Jackson. Unsure of his arrest, Abe stru [...]

    17. I won this book through the giveaway in exchange for an honest review.After finishing the book I want to say that whoever wrote the blurb for the back of the book needs to be fired. When it first arrived I read it and couldn't figure out why I had wanted to read the book based on that blurb. In fact the blurb was so poor that I put off reading what turned out to be an excellent book for a couple weeks. I know that some of the magic for me and this book is its setting. My father grew up in the F [...]

    18. Sandra Bolton knocked it out of the park with this one. This is the first book of hers that I have read and what an outstanding job she did. Abe is running away from a past he wishes he could forget with all his mightd with him, his three legged dog Patch of course. He has no plans on where he is going, he is just packed and headed for California when all of a sudden he is brought in on Murder charges. Emily is a Indian police officer and is the one who brought Abe in. She quickly decides that h [...]

    19. 3.5 STARSI happened upon this book while cruising NetGalley and was immediately drawn to it after reading the synopsis. There are not many books set in New Mexico, and I was immediately intrigued. Imagine my surprise when the book takes a turn and ends up near the same town in Arizona where I lived for 8 years. Ms. Bolton does an excellent job with imagery. Her scenes and descriptions of AZ and NM are not only spectacular but completely accurate. It took me most of the book to warm to hero, Abe. [...]

    20. Joe Freeman is drifting with his three-legged dog Patch, haunted by the loss of his girlfriend to cancer. Unfortunately, at a rest stop he gets mixed up into a major fracas involving the Mexican Mafia, the Aryan Brotherhood, not to mention being suspected of murder for a while--after all his knife was the murder weapon. Navajo police officer, Emily Etcity, suspects him, then helps him, and is exasperated with him. I very much liked the descriptions of the solitary Navajo life, their rich culture [...]

    21. I picked up this book from the "new" shelf at the library and decided to read it because 1) it had a 3 legged dog, Patch; 2) it's a mystery; and 3) it was based in the Southwest. Unfortunately, the story fell flat for me. The characters and plot were not engaging or interesting. It was boring and I ended up skimming the last part because it just couldn't hold my interest and I found I wasn't paying attention. The descriptions of the Navajo life and Native American culture was interesting, but ov [...]

    22. Great adventure mystery.Journey started in NJ, ended in New Mexico. So many colourful characters, especially Sarah and Patch. Navajo Nation Tribal Police, FBI and local police. Aryan Brotherhood, Mexican Mafia, Kansas city mafia. Jewish Abe nick named Jesus eyes. Can't wait for the second book.

    23. I really enjoyed the author's writing style and will look for more books by this author!!!!! I highly recommend this book as an entertaining and addictive read , Sandra Bolton has just gained another fan!

    24. Navajo cultureThis book described the beauty of New Mexico while it wove the culture of the Navajo Indians into the plot and CHARACTERIZATION of the action. I like it when I'm not only entertained but learn something at the same time.

    25. A very nice rideI enjoyed all of the characters a great deal especially Patch the pooch. This book took a hold on me and never let go. It's a fun and delightful reading experience. Walt Massey

    26. Great read.Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's well written, the characters are well formed and the story takes you on a journey that part of you wants to complete and part of you doesn't want to end.

    27. A must read book.Interesting book, first book I've read that was close to home. Was able to read and connect with places mentioned in this book. Book is well written and was very interesting.

    28. Key Witness, what a great read.A well constructed story, mixing murder, drugs, bike gangs and the mafia. A thoroughly enjoyable book, and one which I would recommend highly to anyone who enjoys a good thriller. I will be reading more of this author's books.

    29. New authorThis is the first book I read written by Sandra Bolton. It was extremely good!! I can't believe it is only her second book!! Very well written. Kept my interest all thru out the book!!

    30. Spell bindingSo interesting couldn't, put it down. Excellent reading for mystery lovers. I was not familiar with this author, but will definitely be interested in reading more of her books.
