It's the end of the world,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Policeman: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
The world is about to end in six months , rookie police detective Hank Palace investigates a suicide which may or may not be murder. He wants to do the right thing in a world gone mad as people prepare for the end by fulfilling their bucket lists, seeking solace in drink, drugs or religion.
This is a great plot device to hang the story on , I look forward to the rest of the trilogy. There are some wonderful parallels between the events of the story and the past events of Hank Palace's life.
Hank Palace has the making of one of the world's great detectives he just doesn't have a lot of time to prove it.
The sub text that the world will end for all of us someday is alluded to but never laboured. There are lots of digs at end of the world music , literature and lifestyles.
