Novels by Adam Bender

Break through the government propaganda and avoid surveillance cameras in the dystopian novel acclaimed by Kirkus Reviews as a page-turner of the highest order.

Told from the first-person perspective of an amnesiac, We, The Watched places the reader in the shoes of Seven as he struggles to go unnoticed in a surveillance society.

Seven enters a dystopia where the government conducts mass surveillance and keeps a Watched list of its own citizens.
