It really made my day when I heard that I was going to get an advance copy of The Last Policeman by Ben Winters from Quirkbooks.
Ben Winters takes the question, “What would you do if you knew the world was going to end soon?” and created a true-to-life story that included humor, suspense, and believable drama. Ben did a great job at capturing the various emotions that people would go through during this world-ending situation.
There is a huge asteroid nearing earth and as the probability of it hitting the earth goes up, the behavior of everyone changes. Hank, a policeman, decides he is going to handle it by going to work. When a body was found in the bathroom of a fast-food restaurant, Hank is not convinced that the body was a victim of suicide. He starts a murder investigation that seems fruitless in the eyes of almost everyone he encounters. All the evidence points towards suicide; is he wasting his time?
Was it murder or was it suicide?
I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next one to come out!
