Spotlight: The Last Policeman by H. Ben Winters

For the month of April The Last Policemen is discounted to only $2.99 on all eReaders.

I know everyone likes a good deal and when I saw this favorite of mine was not only nominated for an Edgar Award but is also being offered at a special price, I had to share.

And it has a spiffy new cover too.

The Last Policeman by Ben H. WintersA Pre-Apocalyptic Detective Thriller

What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die? Detective Hank Palace has asked this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. Several kilometers wide, it’s on a collision course with planet Earth, with just six precious months until impact.

The Last Policeman presents a fascinating portrait of a pre-apocalyptic United States. Industry is grinding to a halt. Most people have abandoned their jobs. But not Hank Palace. As our story opens, he’s investigating the latest suicide in a city that’s full of suicides—only this one feels wrong. This one feels like homicide. And Palace is the only one who cares. What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die?

The Last Policeman offers a story we’ve never read before: A police procedural set on the brink of an apocalypse. What would any of us do, what would we really do, if our days were numbered?

    OK, you sold me! (Can’t resist a bargain book.) I hope it’s as good as The City and The City (also a genre blend of speculative fiction and police procedural)!

    Just purchased the Kindle version; I’ve had this on my list. Thanks for the link.

    I read this recently (actually, I listened to it on audiobook) and really enjoyed this! I can’t wait for the next installment to come out in the next few months.

    I couldn’t even imagine what to think.

    This has been on my radar but I’m still a bit unsure.
