“(O)ne of the most interesting books you’ll read this year,” WATERSHED is a thriller about a pregnant woman, and the two men-one a snake dealer with a sideline in secret messages and a billionaire living under an alias-who pursue her through a near-future America of anti-technology neighborhoods and illegal hospitals, where stockbrokers moonlight as assassins, nurses procure obscure pleasures, and the powers that be blow up the new World Trade Center to goose tourism. WATERSHED was named a Book of the Month by The Association of Independent Authors and recognized in Kirkus Reviews’ Stars & Recommendations section as “an appealing mix of adventure and contemplation.”
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“A highly readable, quirkily creative alternate reality that comes frighteningly close to real life… the present taken to its logical extreme… much more than social commentary.
It’s a genuinely captivating edge-of-your-seat thriller, which kept me reading from beginning to end, looking forward to each new chapter.” – The Lost Coast Review
“The world of WATERSHED is a vibrant one, packed to the gills with absurd and yet oddly-believable detail – everything from a September 11th memorial service that involves a full-scale recreation of the original terrorist attack, to a man who gets off on being locked in a coffin with a bag full of cats… Dodds manages to make all this and more seem not just possible, but vivid and tangible too… It’s the real deal.” – IndieReader Reviews (4.7/5 Stars)
