The Last Policeman

For my second read in July I read, The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters.  The book follows Detective Hank Palace as he conducts a possible murder investigation when there is only six months left for humanity.  An asteroid named Maia is going to bring an end to civilization, but that doesn't stop Palace from continuing his search for justice.

This book is the first in a planned trilogy and I look forward to reading the next two in the series.  Winters writes in a concise and clean way.  He goes into detail when needed or most fitting and makes Detective Palace a guy you'd like to meet.  The book has enough surprises to keep you engaged and ends with some closure but also leaves you ready to see what happens in the trilogy's next installment.

I would recommend reading this book.  It's an enjoyable, easy read that keeps you engaged and interested.  Can't wait to see what is up next for Detective Palace!
