    Cloudland
    I enjoyed Cloudland very much..Mr. Olshan transported me to a relatively isolated rural Vermont area where a murder victim is discovered as the snow slowly melts with the season change.. I was instantly taken in by the writing style. The main character is Catherine Winslow and she is the person who discovers the body. She lives alone in that rural area. The tension builds as Catherine begins to piece together clues...This psychological thriller will appeal to men and women who enjoy an involved, more literary work. Susan Simon

    I picked up this novel after hearing the author interviewed on New Hampshire Public Radio. I spent yesterday reading it and was struck by a number of strengths. First of all, he writes beautifully, which is rare to find in a suspense novel. Yes of course you get fine writing in the novels of P.D. James and Ruth Rendell and Dorothy Sayers and, of course John Le Carre. Nevertheless, I was struck by the lyrical approach the author took to writing about murders and fear and longing. The novel is really a hybrid of a literary novel and a novel of suspense such that we'd find in the work of Wilkie Collins, whose own work figures prominently in Olshan's plot. There were enough twists and turns to satisfy me, perhaps not as much as in, say, Defending Jacob, but this is not a courtroom drama, it's a novel with fully realized, complicated characters and that alone compelled my attention.
