Arizona Guy is a great book! Its a fast read and is so good that you just can't put it down. I found myself reading into the next chapter a few pages just to see what happened after the cliff hanger of the previous chapter. I found I wasn't getting anything else done, as I wanted to know what happened next in the small Arizona town of Ajo. Being an Arizona native, I found that I could relate to everything he put in his book. I am a retired Teacher and its great to find a mystery book that appeals to a wide audience from young adults to 100+ in years. The author, Raymond Spitzer, manages to include some very current border issues into a slick mystery narrative, that will keep you guessing until the very end. What happens next? I really want to know! I think this book would make a great ongoing series of mysteries set in Arizona
and the surrounding areas of the southwestern United States. Its nice to have a great new author on the mystery scene.Arizona Guy

"Arizona Guy", is a charming, suspenseful mystery. it delightfully depicts the wonderful friendships and occasional dangers of small town life along the border between the United States and Mexico. It has snappy dialogue and captivating hints of potential romance between "Arizona Guy" Ted White & detective Blanca "Sandy" Sandino.

Ted White, a music teacher, is on the rebound after being dumped by his fiancee when he agrees to house-sit for his aunt and uncle in a small town near the Arizona-Mexico border. He arrives to find his aunt and uncle inexplicably missing and the house vandalized. In his search for his missing relatives he meets the local police, local music students, neighbors, a talented handyman, a deaf trumpet player/gardener and a host of others. All become involved in efforts to set things right, creating an intimate, caring small-town atmosphere where people reach out to others across races, religions and the whims of nature.
The book is well-written, the characters rounded and credible, the plot fast-paced and logical and the reading experience enjoyable! A question for author Raymond Spitzer: Got any more books coming soon?

Arizona Guy is a terrific book. The mystery kept me guessing until the end, and the characters were well developed and interesting. This is a great book to read on the elliptical machine as it totally kept my attention (therefore not thinking about the exercise effort!) I couldn't wait to turn the page to see what was going to happen next. I hope the author comes out with another mystery soon.

This story is only mediocre. The characters are flat and the plot weak. It presents itself as a mystery but is just a series of over-hyped incidents which add up to nothing more than some teen vandalism. It's real purpose is to present Mormonism in a warm and cozy light, which is okay as far as it goes, but I would prefer to know up front that I'm being set up for some soft proselytizing.

Good selection for a book club, school library, and for anyone interested in a mystery set in small town Arizona. Realistic characters developed in such a way as to make me feel I should know them. Each chapter ending peaked my curiosity for the next. Humorous and serious moments abound. The movie should cast Michael Clark Duncan as "T.J.".

I downloaded the book as Christian fiction. It is a good story, good people, entertaining, but here is no spiritual content. There is quite a bit of religious information, Mormon. But, there is nothing about a person's relationship with God, and certainly nothing about Jesus or the Holy Spirit.

I got this in spite of some not so good reviews and I'm glad I did. One of the reviewers said it was all about Mormons, but I didn't find that to be true. There were a few things regarding Mormons, but not a whole lot. the Arizona guy is related to a Mormon couple (his aunt and uncle) and he actually starts out as the California guy. It is a good read and most of the problems that happen to him start with no communication or lost communication. His aunt and uncle have disappeared before he gets there, which starts a lot of mystery of what has happened to them. Pranks get out of hand creating a fearful atmosphere for not just him, but new friends he makes along the way. All in all, I enjoyed this book very much and would ask that you have an open mind if someone wants to stop you because they believe differently than you. It's all in how you perceive things. I recommend this as a good mystery.
