Mark Twain wrote: We must put up with our clothes as they are - they have their reason for existing. They are on us to expose us - to advertise what we wear them to conceal. They are a sign; a sign of insincerity; a sign of suppressed vanity; a pretense that we desire gorgeous colors and the graces of harmony and form; and we put them on to propagate that lie and back it up.

Watershed is a thriller about a pregnant woman and the two men -- one a snake dealer with a sideline in secret messages and the other 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.
The writing is amateurish, the characters are poorly drawn, and the story is just plain weird. It's completed, but the ending feels rushed. It's simply not my kind of story.
Charles Cromer's performance is passable. He does make an effort to give distinctive voices to most of the characters, but the production lacks polish. In fact, I suspect there are missing bits, but I can't confirm that.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
