Countdown City

The Last Policeman Book II

Set three months before the deadly asteroid 2011GV1 is due to hit Earth, this "Last Policeman "sequel chronicles the further adventures of Hank Palace. The Concord Police Department is now operating under the auspices of the U.S. Justice Department, and Hank is out of a job--until he's hired by a business tycoon to help find the man's estranged son. Hank's search leads him to a visibly collapsing East Coast landscape where anti-immigrant militia patrol the shores, fending off droves of people fleeing the "impact zone" of the asteroid.
And it isn't long before Hank's missing-person case turns into a murder investigation. But the "Last""Policeman "sequel asks questions well beyond "whodunit." What do we as human beings owe to one another? And what does it mean to be civilized when civilization is collapsing all around you?

Zitat
."..the 'don't lose hope' ending is slam bang, setting us up for the 'final-final' installment."--"Florida Times-Union""A precise, calendar-driven doom casts a shadow over the series, a planet-killer asteroid that the Earth can't duck, making this an existential "policier.""--"The Sunbreak" ."..a thrilling and contagious read."--"Fayetteville Flyer" "Through it all Palace remains a likeable hero for end times..."--"PublishersWeekly.com""Winters is a deft storyteller who moves his novel effortlessly from its intriguing setup to a thrilling, shattering conclusion."--"Los Angeles Review of Books"."..gripping..."--"The Free Lance-Star".".. Winters's work shines."--"Locus" "Don't miss this series!"--"Sci Fi "magazine "As with the first Hank Palace novel (this is volume 2 of a projected trilogy), the mystery element is strong, and the strange, preapocalyptic world is highly imaginative and also very plausible--it's easy to think that the impending end of the world might feel very much like this. Genre mash-up master Winters is at it again."--"Booklist"
