The Water Knife

Paolo Bacigalupi


WATER IS POWER
 
In the close to destiny, the Colorado River has faded to a trickle. Detective, murderer, and secret agent, Angel Velasquez “cuts” water for the Southern Nevada Water Authority, making sure that its lush arcology advancements can bloom in Las Vegas. whilst rumors of a game-changing water resource floor in Phoenix, Angel is shipped south, attempting to find solutions that appear to evaporate because the warmth index soars and the panorama turns into an increasing number of oppressive. There, he encounters Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist together with her personal time table, and Maria Villarosa, a tender Texas migrant, who desires of escaping north. As our bodies start to pile up, the 3 locate themselves pawns in a video game a ways larger and extra corrupt than they can have imagined, and whilst water is extra useful than gold, alliances shift like sand, and the single fact within the barren region is that somebody must bleed if an individual hopes to drink.
