The Water Knife
With the Southwest devastated by drought, Nevada, Arizona, and California skirmish over dwindling shares of the Colorado River. When rumors of a game-changing water source surface in Phoenix, Las Vegas water knife Angel Velasquez is sent to investigate. He encounters journalist Lucy Monroe, who knows more than she admits, and Texas migrant Maria Villarosa, who dreams of escaping north, where water still falls from the sky. As bodies begin to pile up, the three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt, and dirtier than they imagined.
