In a nutshell, this is a story about the best and the worst of the human condition; humanity laid bare within the constraints of a terrible place in such a way as you will never forget. After reading Tim Willocks' 'The Religion', I knew that he is a gifted writer but that you had to be prepared to be intensely and shockingly enthralled to the nth degree. After putting it off for a year or so I decided to read 'Green River Rising'. I was immediately drawn into a place and time totally unlike any experience I had ever been exposed to. This is a story about prison life, probably as gritty and hopeless as anything I had ever read, but the storyline and the authors excellent skill with prose will not allow you to turn away.  I have been an avid reader for over 40 years and I can honestly say this book is in the Top Ten on my memorable books list. You may not find this story entertaining but you will find it illuminating! Be prepared.

An absolute must for any person who is able to read. A true masterpiece. A treasure in its own. An eye opener.
