Review:

" 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)
