It's been two years since the invasion. Two years since the slicks came to our planet and herded humanity together like cattle, placing us under constant watch in the few cities that remain. The lucky ones are left to their own devices. The unlucky few are rounded up and carted off to labor camps to face an unknown fate.
Former homicide detective Adrian Grace was cut off from his family, but has somehow managed to survive. When one of the slicks is murdered, they ask him to find the killer. He reluctantly agrees, and in the course of his investigation, witnesses the best, and the worst, that humanity has to offer: a plot to escape the labor camps; a pending war between an in-your-face councilwoman and the corrupt city mayor; and a priest who claims to have befriended the dead alien. But worst of all, he stumbles onto a conspiracy that puts the fate of the entire city in jeopardy.
In the end, Detective Grace discovers that the killer might just be the last person he would have suspected.
A story about betrayal, redemption, faith, fear, and hope, The Last Detective is a thrilling look at what happens to humanity when our world crumbles around us.

What do you call it? Alien Noir?
After aliens destroy seize control and demolish human institutions, replacing whatever is necessary with puppet functionaries, an alien overlord is murdered. The aliens don't have experience in investigating murders becasue they don't kill one another. So the task falls to a former police detective who has no love for the aliens but a compelling need to find answers. The result, a compelling story you'll not want to walk away from until it's finished.
Plenty of unpredictable twists and turns and a small window of opportunity left for a sequel, which I hope happens. THe story is fast paced and told extremely well with a particular eye for subtle details (and clues). What a great story! The writing as well as the narration is first rate. It's easy to get drawn in to the post apocalyptic world. .
