A good story in and of itself, and it does a fine job of setting up plot to be settled in the final book.

The second book in the Last Policeman series, about a nice-guy, ex-cop continuing to take on investigative duty for his close friends, for no compensation, even when the world has only months to live. I find the first half of the book a tad slow, but things do pick up in the second half and make the story interesting. And yes, I am awaiting to read book three.

Reading this 2nd installment of the Last Policeman is greatly enhanced by reading the original "Last Policeman" first, as it fills in much needed backstory on three underlying plot lines.

As well written as the first, but time is running out to fit a third story into the narrative. Less than six weeks remain at the end of this novel.

Interesting, in a blog posting Aug 16/13, the author says he hasn't even come up with a title for the last book (

Ironically, fans of this series may have a much more time waiting for the next installment than the characters have remaining in the story.

Just as good as the first one (The Last Policeman). We're way further into the countdown to civilization's end. Great characters and a nice large arc as well as the individual story.

Read this second but do read it.
