    1. What a discovery. Literate hard-boiled crime. Gentleman's pulp noire. Maybe it's not quite 'No Country For Old Men' by McCarthy and not quite 'Bleeding Edge' by Pynchon, but Tim Willock's writing deserves comparison to the best. The dust jacket also puts him in league with James Ellroy and Stephen Hunter, two other great authors.**** A fast paced psychological thriller, it probably helps that Willock is a doctor of psychology specializing in addiction. Gritty and intense, an excellent book! I st [...]

    2. Years back I had a day where I had little to do so first thing after breakfast I sat down to a read a bit of this paperback book Green River Rising by Tim Willocks that I had just bought after seeing it recommended somewhere. It’s the story of a prison uprising and it turned out to be one of the most downright addictive books I’ve ever read. Willocks has pretty unique style that brings a literary sensibility to the lowest depths of human nature but which forges forward with thriller plotting [...]

    3. Si vous envisagez de lire du Willocks, sachez que Les rois écarlates fait suite à Bad City Blues, que je n’ai pas lu. Donc, ne faites pas comme moi, lisez-les dans l’ordre, même si ce n’est pas indispensable à la compréhension de l’intrigue, ça aide à mieux situer les personnages et comprendre quelques allusions. Tant pis pour moi !Les rois écarlates est la quintessence du roman noir glauquissime et hyper violent. L’intrigue démarre tranquillement, mais les choses s’accélè [...]

    4. " C'è troppo odio nel mondo. Ma dovrà pur servire a qualcosa, altrimenti non esisterebbe. " L'odio. L'odio è il principale motore di questo straordinario libro di Tim Willocks, uscito la prima volta nel 1995 e che ora viene riproposto nella bella collana Revolver. In una Louisiana violenta e corrotta l'odio sembra muovere tutte le azioni dei personaggi della storia, a partire da Lenna Parillaud, ricchissima vedova che sembra vivere solo per vendicarsi e odiare. Ma si sa, l'altro volto dell'od [...]

    5. This is such an improvement compared to his his first book, Bad City Blues. Some of the same characters are here, in this sequel, but he's done so much more with them as well as his new characters. They have much more complexity. Of particular note is George, the hero Cicero's father, and the lawyer, both ex-Marines, one of WWII and the other of the Korean War. He gives them the grit that such men were made, an austere willingness to offer their lives for something greater than themselves. Willo [...]

    6. In keeping with his first outing in Bad City Blues, in which he was forced to go head to head with the juggernaut that was infamous law enforcement officer, Captain Clarence Jefferson, sometime psychiatrist Eugene `Cicero' Grimes is reluctantly compelled to step into the breach once more as he finds himself enmeshed within the web spun by the machiavellian machinations of the giant fat man.The story is, as might be expected from anyone familiar with Willocks' work, gut wrenching, visceral stuff [...]

    7. J'ai lu La religion et Les 12 enfants de Paris avec un plaisir qui ne s'est à aucun moment démenti. C'est en toute confiance que j'ai commencé Les rois écarlates, et c'est un peu déçue que j'ai fermé le bouquin. Peut-être aurait-il été plus sage de ma part de lire le tome precedent, toujours est-il que je n'ai pas retrouvé ce qui selon moi faisait la beauté des deux romans susnommés. La violence est la, la vengeance et le talent de l'auteur n'est pas amoindri, mais il manque un peti [...]

    8. Cicero Grimes traverse une grave dépression : il n’émerge de sa torpeur que pour prendre conscience du dégoût qu’il s’inspire à lui-même. Lenna Parillaud vit dans la peine et la souffrance depuis la perte de sa fille. Seules les humiliations qu’elle inflige à son mari, drogué et enfermé dans une bâtisse du Mississippi, donnent un sens à sa vie. Lenna Parillaud et Cicero Grimes ne se sont jamais rencontrés. Jusqu’au jour où ils reçoivent chacun une lettre qui les entraîne [...]

    9. this is a tremendous book. It's a manly book too, all about doing the right thing at any cost and standing up for friends and family even when it seems impossible. It's about the horrible things people do for love and about finding forgiveness in the strangest places. It's also about explosions and shootings and toughness and hard men doing hard things for reasons that sometimes only they can understand.Highly recommended.

    10. A British doctor writing noir fiction set in the deep South. Not as good as Willocks debut novel, Green River Rising, although similar in style and even one plot device (the scorned wife imprisoning and torturing her evil husband after faking his death). A page-turner, but many of the characters felt underdeveloped.

    15. Complicated plot, race issues key to the story line, as well as power, corruption and just plain insanity. Interesting read, good writing.

    17. Grim picture of depression era Louisiana. The plot was fairly predictable, but his writing style reminded me of old Black & White noir films.

    18. The only character I liked in this book was Gul, the dog. And I don't like dogs.
