Review

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

"[The] plotting is sure-footed and surprising...Ben H. Winters reveals himself as a novelist with an eye for the well-drawn detail."--Slate

"Full of compelling twists, likable characters, and a sad beauty, The Last Policemanis 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

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

"An entertaining and well-plotted tale."--Wired.com's GeekDad

"Afascinating portrait of a pre-apocalyptic United States."--Tor.com

"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

"A solidly plotted whodunit with strong characters and excellent dialogue."--Booklist

"This thought-provoking mystery should appeal to crime fiction aficionados who like an unusual setting and readers looking for a fresh take on apocalypse stories."--Library Journal
