Product description

Review

"A page-turner, as compelling and evocative as the finest novel. The best book on prison I've ever read."--Jonathan Kellerman

"Reporting at its very finest."--Los Angeles Times

"The book is a large act of courage, its subject an important one, and . . . [Pete] Earley does it justice."--The Washington Post Book World

"[A] riveting, fiercely unsentimental book . . . To [Earley's] credit, he does not romanticize the keepers or the criminals. His cool and concise prose style serves him well. . . . This is a gutsy book."--Chicago Tribune

"Harrowing . . . an exceptional work of journalism."--Detroit Free Press

"If you're going to read any book about prison, The Hot House is the one. . . . It is the most realistic, unbuffed account of prison anywhere in print."--Kansas City Star

"A superb piece of reporting."--Tom Clancy --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

About the Author

After a fourteen-year career in journalism, including six years at The Washington Post, Earley became a full-time author with a commitment to exposing the stories that entertain and surprise. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
