Revue de presse

"Green River Rising is a stunner - and may be the best prison novel ever. This is a book of dark alchemy: turbulent milieu, brilliantly etched characters, pure adrenaline-fuelled narrative - richly sustained and stylishly realised. Tim Willocks has crafted a superbly contained trip to hell that I urge you all to sign on for" (James Ellroy)

"The best thriller since The Silence of the Lambs... Green River Rising is a brilliant entertainment...a powerful novel that will shock, and sell" (Daily Telegraph)

"Gritty...brilliant...a compelling story of gripping pace and brutality, a thriller in the true sense of the word" (GQ)

"This book should carry a warning: don't bother reading if you're afraid of being unable to put it down before the final page...a compelling, nightmarish canvas, marvellously painted... Green River Rising has the sure touch of a real craftsman" (Publishing News)

Présentation de l'éditeur

After three years' hard time, minding no-one's business but his own, Ray Klein wins his parole. That same day, the disciplinary perfection of Green River State Penitentiary is torn apart by tribal war, and the prison falls into the hands of its inmates.

As the River sucks them all towards the abyss, Klein must choose either to claim his freedom and leave the ones he cares for to die, or risk everything and fight...

atsonishingly tough novel of prison life 25 janvier 2006
Par Raegan Butcher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was a prisoner for 7 years in 4 different prisons in Washington State and it was during my incarceration that I discovered this book. To boil it down into a nutshell, you could say its like DIE HARD during a prison riot, with a lone protagonist pitted against some seriously depraved adversaries-- but that doesn't do it justice; this book just drips authentic atmosphere--it's as evocative as the prison writings of Edward Bunker. I was completely flabbergasted when I found out the author had not only NOT done time himself, but was actually an Englishman to boot! My hat is off to Tim Willocks; without ever having spent any time in an American prison that I know of, he has captured something as real as anything ever written by inmates themselves. What still stands out in my mind are the well drawn motivations of the various factions warring inside the prison and the absolute vileness of some of the villains.

Savage, compelling, intelligent journey into hell 5 novembre 1996

HEAT, HUMIDITY, HELL: ANARCHY AT GREEN RIVER

© by Carolyn J. Seeley.

Reverse your image of a prison, like the negative of a photograph. What could be more safe than a glass enclosure, dedicated to the reform and social reengineering of convicts? What happens to men when light is punishment and discipline? Green River State Penitentiary in East Texas, imagined by English author Tim Willocks in his novel, Green River Rising, is a facility that sentences men to prison lives without darkness, to be scorched clean by light. Now, what happens when the prison warden's nineteenth century philosophy of prison reform meets twentieth century East Texas taxpayers, parole boards, politicians? This is Willocks' stage for his drama of a violent uprising, spurred by a warden with a failed dream and crumbling mind, who touches off the uprising for the sake of it--to achieve change through force, to move life along through sacrifice and blood, the more senseless and arbitrary, the better. Green River Rising is savage yet compelling; a page turner, an intelligent book. Well plotted, with memorable characters, Willocks' writing conveys the stifling sense of entrapment in a prison gone amok. However, the underlying themes of loyalty, survival, friendship, and love transcend the gore and give the book its depth. It is not light reading, but a gripping, intense tale rumored soon to be brought to a theater near you. Although Willocks wrote the screenplay, read the book before Hollywood gets its hooks in.

Pleasured 10 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Despite my initial reservations about a book with what one can only describe as a run of the mill plot, within the first couple of chapters I was captivated. The Author takes you so deep into a dark, violent and enclosed world that you feel you can almost smell the carnage and taste the fear. Whilst there are some poorly improbable moments in this book eg. the sex scenes, glibly glossing over these allows you to enjoy what I can only describe as an INTENSE READ.

THE BEST PRISON FICTION BOOK EVER WRITTEN 5 janvier 2005
Par John B. Hubbard Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I dare you to read "Green River Rising" and then the "The Green Mile" back to back. You will probably throw "The Green Mile" in the toilet after going 1/4 the way and then re-read "Green River Rising".

If you like books like Stehen Hunter's "Dirty White Boys" or Mr. Willock's other book "Bloodstained Kings" (has there ever been a cooler title?) then you will love "Green River Rising".

I enjoy guys like John Connolly, Stephen Hunter, Brian Keene, James W. Hall, and the Child/Preston collaborative novels. if you are familiar with these guys and you like them, then give Willocks a try. He's an original, creative genius.

A Compelling, Gut Wrenching, Roller Coaster Ride. Yeah!! 27 août 1998
Par Helveticus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I loved this book. Very well written with real characters and bar none the sexiest love scene I've almost ever read in a thriller. This book is smart and scary. It sizzles. Read it!
