Reviews

Winner of the 2013 Edgar (R) Award for Best Paperback Original
One of Slate's Best Books of 2012

A July 2012 Indie Next List Pick

"Winters's apocalyptic detective story contains an earth-shattering element of science fiction that lifts it beyond a typical procedural."-New York Times Book Review

"An appealing hybrid of the best of science fiction and crime fiction."-The Washington Post

"[The] weird, beautiful, unapologetically apocalyptic Last Policeman trilogy is one of my favorite mystery series."-John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns

"In his acclaimed Last Policeman trilogy, Winters showed off his mastery of edgy, sardonic wit - there's nothing like an asteroid speeding toward Earth to bring out the black humor in people."-Newsday

"Sharp, funny, and deeply wise."-Slate.com

"Darkly intriguing."-Discover

"I'm in the middle of it and can't put the dang thing down."-USA Today's Pop Candy

"Exhilarating."-E! Online

"Ben Winters makes noir mystery even darker: his latest novel sets a despondent detective on a suspicious suicide case-while an asteroid hurtles toward earth."-Wired.com

"Winters's writing is funny, surprisingly tender, and thoroughly human."-Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

"A sturdy, functional, entertaining page-turner."-Greg Cook, WBUR.org

"I'm eager to read the other books, and expect that they'll keep me as enthralled as the first one did."-Mark Frauenfedler, Boing Boing

"The Last Policeman is extraordinary-as well as brilliant, surprising, and, considering the circumstances, oddly uplifting."-Mystery Scene

"Full of compelling twists, likable characters, and a sad beauty, The Last Policeman is a gem."-San Francisco Book Review

"This is a book that asks big questions about civilization, community, desperation and hope."-io9

"In his Last Policeman trilogy, for which he won both the Edgar Award and the Philip K. Dick Award, Winters took a standard science fiction trope - the final months before an asteroid slams into Earth - and mixed it with some of the conventions of the detective novel, imbuing his apocalyptic scenario with an extra measure of urgency and poignancy."-The San Francisco Chronicle

"The Last Policeman succeeds both as a mystery, with a quirky detective and an intriguing whodunit, and as a piece of apocalyptic speculative fiction."-Sacramento News & Review

"Resonant and powerful."-Locus

"A promising kickoff to a planned trilogy. For Winters, the beauty is in the details rather than the plot's grim main thrust."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review
