The Last Policeman Book Summary/Review:

“A genre-defying blend of crime writing and science fiction.” –Alexandra Alter, The New York Times Winner of the 2013 Edgar® Award for Best Paperback Original! What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die soon, anyway? Detective Hank Palace has faced this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. There’s no chance left. No hope. Just six precious months until impact. The economy spirals downward while crops rot in the fields. Churches and synagogues are packed. People all over the world are walking off the job—but not Hank Palace. He’s investigating a death by hanging in a city that sees a dozen suicides every week—except this one feels suspicious, and Palace is the only cop who cares. The first in a trilogy, The Last Policeman offers a mystery set on the brink of an apocalypse. As Palace’s investigation plays out under the shadow of 2011GV1, we’re confronted by hard questions way beyond “whodunit.” What basis does civilization rest upon? What is life worth? What would any of us do, what would we really do, if our days were numbered?

The Ninja Murders Commodore Matthew Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853 was one of history's defining moments. His visit ended over two-hundred years of self-imposed isolation and precipitated the fall of the Shogunate. It was also the moment that gave birth to Japanese ambitions to rule East Asia and the Western Pacific. America's desire to increase its international standing inadvertently opened a Pandora's Box that would lead to no less than five wars, including World War II. However, The Ninja Murders
