Genre: Adult Mystery
Publisher: Quirk Books
The story of the first big case for rookie detective Henry Palace could easily be a run of the mill mystery novel. Except in The Last Policeman universe an asteroid, known as Maia, is coming and in six months the planet Earth won’t exist. They are suddenly “in a world where the idea of long term consequences had magically disappeared” which also means it’s not the best time to be in law enforcement. But when Palace suspects foul play during a suicide he strikes out on his own to solve the murder before time ticks away.
