AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Devoid of rain, the earth has shrunk to dust and salt, hemmed by a swollen sea. Survivors gather to re-establish order but it's nothing like before. It is Jeremiah's world. Commanded by the cruel Garrick, Jem is a Watchman and hunter of Disses: rebels who dare to challenge the Tower and its ruling Council. Loner by design and killer by nature, he's unapologetically part of a cruel regime until a new assignment exposes a web of deceit, and past sins demand their reckoning. When a young boy elicits his sympathy, and an enigmatic woman his interest, Jem is made to question everything he believes before undertaking one last terrifying mission. Now he must do unto others if he's to take care of his own' (publication blurb).

'With echoes of Hugh Howey, Pierce Brown and Emily St Mandel, Watershed is a stark and violent vision of the future' (Michael Meller Literary Agency).

— Review of Watershed Jane Abbott 2016 single work novel
'Jane Abbott's Watershed is a homegrown addition to the burgeoning sub genre of dystopian fiction that's become known as "cli-fi". Our continent's cities have sunk forlornly beneath the waves, what remains of land is parched and inhospitable, and what remains of society makes Hobbes look like an optimist. ...'
