I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Key Witness by Sandra Bolton
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 the crime scene and Easy’s key appears in Abe’s backpack, Abe finds himself hunted by the police, biker gangs, and drug dealers, all of whom are determined to get their hands on that key. Caught up in the violence, Abe becomes desperate to prove his innocence. With help from Navajo police officer Emily Etcitty, he just might survive…and his heart just might find another reason to keep on beating.
This is the kind of book I would definitely shelf as Adventure
I love the characters – especially the diversity.
Abe was slightly stupid at some points but likeable.
The plot was great, and it went at 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 the way it took turns and twists were a bit saddening.
Aside from the characters, I love the setting too. Most of the time, I don’t care much about the environment but Bolton has that kind of writing that pays attention to details which are captivating.
Overall, Key Witness is a bundle of adventure, thrill, diversity, and a little dash of romance. It went on a good pace and had great writing.
