Winner of the 2013 Edgar Award Winner for Best Paperback Original! What' s the point in solving murders if we' re all going to die soon, anyway? Detective Hank Palace has faced this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. There' s no chance left. No hope. Just six precious months until impact. The Last Policeman presents a fascinating portrait of a pre-apocalyptic United States. The economy spirals downward while crops rot in the fields. Churches and synagogues are packed. People all over the world are walking off the job-- but not Hank Palace. He' s investigating a death by hanging in a city that sees a dozen suicides every week-- except this one feels suspicious, and Palace is the only cop who cares. The first in a trilogy, The Last Policeman offers a mystery set on the brink of an apocalypse. As Palace' s investigation plays out under the shadow of 2011GV1, we' re confronted by hard questions way beyond " whodunit." What basis does civilization rest upon? What is life worth? What would any of us do, what would we really do, if our days were numbered?
