  • Overview
    Deathwatch centers around three men; Green Eyes, Georgie, and Maurice. Green Eyes is an illiterate, muscled hulk of a man who rules the cell by virtue of his hyper-masculinity and brawn, although he is not as dense as his cell mates believe. George Lefranc,known as Georgie, is the intellectual who reads Green Eyes' girlfriend's letters and then responds back to the unseen woman for the bigger man. While he ostensibly does this to ingratiate himself to Green Eyes, it becomes apparent that he has an ulterior motive for his assistance.
    The story is a look into how prison mates vie for status and power via their crimes and how that status is determined by the type and circumstance of the crime. It's also a look into human nature under extreme conditions showing to what lengths people will go to survive and determine their own destinies.
