Praise

“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
