A disease of unparalleled destructive force has sprung up almost simultaneously in every corner of the globe, all but destroying the human race.

What he ultimately discovers will prove far more astonishing than anything he'd either dreaded or hoped for.

It was a great listen and will listen again one day. I felt like I could feel what it was like during Ish's life. However I got very frustrated at Ish's lack of foresight and planning. He just pretty much let everyone do whatever they wanted . Other than that an excellent book!!!

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.
