Dworshak was a body of water created by the Clearwater River.

The dammed river created the reservoir that powers the town of Orofino while flooding a previously abandoned town and leaving behind tales of desecrated Indian burial grounds. Amid this stew of history, legend and hearsay, Knight brings us a “Big Fish” tale.

Remember the one that got away? Reservoir Gods is one of those stories.

The story centers on the lives of various individuals around Dworshak. There is Commissioner Grant Lang, who enjoys the outdoors, camping with his underlings, and the occasional 14-year-old girl. He’s also a bit of a sociopath. There’s the Garbage Man, tasked with getting rid of the town’s more unseemly problems. There’s Roger Burnham, scuba-diving the reservoir’s murky depths as something of an amateur local historian. He wants to prove that there was a town beneath the waters. Add an elderly gentleman, a former drug dealer who chummed around with the local militia, and a pontoon boat dubbed the Great Pumpkin, and you have the set-up for a stupendous tale of monstrous marine life.
