The Last Policeman Pt 1

As I mentioned in the last post, I am going to be reading the first two books in The Last Policeman series back-to-back. I've just finished the first book aptly titled The Last Policeman and I'm extraordinarily glad that I have the sequel in hand already as I'm bursting to know what's going to happen next with Detective Henry (or Hank if you like) Palace. The world is going to end in 6 months. This is a done deal. An asteroid is on its way and the impact is going to destroy civilization as we know it. In fact, it's already happening. People are killing themselves so that they don't have to face the inevitable destruction of the planet. In Concord, the suicide preference is death by hanging.  However, Detective Palace suspects that this newest death is in fact a murder and he's tasked with gathering the evidence to back up his claim while everyone else is just coasting by (or taking off to check things off of their Bucket List). The laws have changed, society is one step away from true chaos, an asteroid is hurtling through space with earth in its sights, and Hank just wants to keep doing his job.

Are you excited for Countdown City after that little taste? I AM!


  1. I'm reading The Last Policeman now too! About half way through... :)

    1. How are you liking it so far?

      Countdown City is full of delicious tension so if you're enjoying TLP then you'll really love this one.. I find myself feeling anxious about this 'reality' that Winters has created.

    2. I haven't started Countdown City yet, but I'm excited. I really enjoyed the epilogue of TLP since it tied up a lot of loose ends.
