Things in Ditches by Jimmy Olsen

Things in Ditches by Jimmy Oleson

Reviewed by Author Holly Newhouse for Eternal Book Reviews


 "Vicky Johnson's killer rolled onto his right side, drew his knees up under the warm covers and cautiously peeked through the darkness at the crisp digits of the clock-radio counting his last moments on earth, death waiting patiently for him to shower and dress. The secret he thought, is not to open your eyes and let the world in.
"So begins the story of Dutch Cleland, a man with a hidden past and a future about to explode in his face. A seemingly average man whose love for two women drives him to such extremes that deception, even murder and suicide are no longer unthinkable."



In this murder mystery novel by Author Jimmy Oleson, there is plenty of murder, mystery, suspense and intrigue to satisfy any reader who seeks it out. I was hooked by the end of chapter one! This is an amazingly well written book with a very well-developed and complex story as well as complex characters who are exquisitely well-developed at the right pace. There are many twists and turns that keep you on your toes so that just when you think you have it figured out who the good guy is and who the bad guy is, you find out you are so very wrong, each is someone you would have never guessed. I would put Mr. Oleson up there with the greats in this genre because his writing ability is just that amazing and his ability to engage the reader on the deepest of levels is fascinating and truly brilliant! I highly recommend this book!
