I've been meaning to read this for ages and I'm soo glad it finally happened. What have I been waiting for?!? The premise is that the world is coming to an end. Literally. There is an asteroid headed for Earth and there is only about 6 months left before it hits and takes humanity with it. Most people have decided to quit their jobs and do everything on their bucket list now that the end is in sight, but not Detective Hank Palace. Even though the world is ending he still insists on doing his job, upholding the law and solving murders. When he finds yet another suicide, he isn't convinced there wasn't foul play involved. The other other cops can't understand why he even cares, it looks like a suicide and that's enough for them, but not for Hank. Intricately woven and full of plot twists, this book is a must read. I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy!
