Staff Reviews


Futuristic view of what could happen if we lose our most valuable natural resource – water. Set in the not too far-fetched future, it's everyone for themselves as water is running out. Grave consequences of over-development and its impact on us all. Important perspective for anyone living in the Southwest. This story will make you want to conserve water every time you turn on the tap.

“The near-future depicted in The Water Knife is disturbing and disorienting in its familiarity. Imagine an America so scraped away by ecological disasters - hurricanes, dust storms, and drought - and the brutal struggle to control the water supply that results in a refugee crisis in the Southwest rivaling those that have devastated third world nations. This book moves like a high-octane thriller but includes a wealth of warnings about where America and the world at large may be headed: a dark future where the brutal reality of everyday survival makes people, corporations, and governments do terrible things. The Water Knife may turn out to be 2015's most talked about book.”
