THE LAST POLICEMAN

Author:  Ben H. Winters
Genre:  Mystery, The Last Policeman Trilogy #1
Published:  2012
Personal Rating:  3.5/5 (good)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Peter Berkrot
Yearly Count:  6


Detective Hank Palace, who was promoted due to pre-apocalyptic predictions, takes his job seriously -- even with the impending doom.  He is determined to solve a suspicious hanging.

The first 2/3 was much more intriguing to me than the last 1/3.  I'm not sure why, but I started losing interest in the topic.  Picking up the next in this trilogy won't happen soon, but I'm still interested in reading it.  Mainly because I did like the doggedness of Palace.

  1. I didn't feel a sense of urgency with this book like I thought I should. For me, it was just okay.

  2. I discussed this one with my mystery book group last year. We had a good discussion. Many of the group were skeptical about reading it because they thought it was 'sci-fi'. I told them that it's good to branch out now and then. I haven't read #2 and #3 yet either. One day.
