Welcome to WATSONWORKS,
the website of author James Watson.
'James Watson is above all
a master of narrative.'
FAIR GAME: THE STEPS OF THE ODESSA
A human rights thriller for all ages
Women's soccer, fast and furious
On and off the field, the quest for identity
The silencing of a campaigning journalist; his family imperilled
Kidnap amid the snows of Ukraine
Secrecy that threatens to undermine a loving friendship
A terrorist plot targets thousands of protestors on the Steps of the Odessa
What matters most to journalist Victor Kaltsov is revealing the truth. What matters to his daughter Natasha is being true to herself, and becoming a football star.
So far WatsonWorks amount to:
11 novels for young readers
A book of short stories
A kids' book featuring some very noisy ducks
Two plays for upper schools and youth theatres
Four plays for radio
Three books on the study of media
In a few words, what the novels are about:
They've been called political thrillers
They deal with human rights issues
But they are also action-packed
Their locations are international
They are about characters caught in 'the eye of the storm'
They pull no punches in terms of plot or language
