    2. From my blog at clsiewert.wordpress 2015 Almost always, things are exactly as they appear People are continually looking at the painful or boring parts of life with the half hidden expectation that there is going on beneath the surface, some deeper meaning that will eventually be unveiled we re waiting for the saving grace, the shocking reveal But almost always things just are what they are, almost always there s no glittering ore hidden under the dirt I ve been reading two books about asteroid [...]

    3. I won this ARC from I think that one of the bright spots about knowing that an asteroid is going to hit the Earth would be that no one could ever say again, Cheer up It s not the end of the world There are only a few days left until the hunk of space rock called Maia will collide with the Earth and almost certainly wipe out humanity Hank Palace, a former police detective, is on one last case of a highly personal nature He s trying to track down his rebellious sister Nico who is with a group she [...]

    4. It remains hard to fathom, hard to believe, that this is what the world has become That this, of all possible worlds and times in which I could have been born, could have been a policeman, that this is the world and time that I got.Again we join Henry Palace, policeman, in one last mystery before the world ends.In six days an asteroid will obliterate Earth Henry Palace is searching for his sister They are so different, and he knows they have different opinions on the future such as, whether ther [...]

    5. We now live in a world of wolves people roaming the countryside in search of safety or love or cheap thrills.The asteroid that is going to wipe out Earth is now expected within just days Henry only maintains his sanity by giving himself quests In the first book, he was still a cop and was trying to solve a murder In the second book, the police were done, but he took a private case to investigate And, in this third book, he decides that he needs to find his sister before the end so they can die t [...]

    6. Very satisfying end to a progressively crazy series I mean, seriously, can we expect anything else when the world is about to end Cults aside, Henry is right there with the rest of them, still a policeman even when hunting for a sledgehammer, his sister, or that one last kiss But not with his sister, mind you He isn t that crazy Of course, any SF Mystery series that brings in the Amish is going to be slightly odd , right Still, hunting for his lost sister is far from being the craziest thing any [...]

    7. This is the third and final volume in Ben H Winters series featuring Hank Palace, the Last Policeman When the first volume, The Last Policeman, opened, Hank had just been promoted into his dream job of being a detective on the police force in Concord, New Hampshire Sadly, though, the job is not going to last very long because in only six month s time, a giant asteroid is going to slam into the earth, ending Life As We Know It.The Last Policeman and Countdown City detailed Hank s activities for t [...]

    8. The Hook It s the end of the trilogy and possibly the world Who could resist knowing what happened The Line It s sunrise, drizzling still, and with the muted rain wet golds and scarlets of the trees, with the crickets calling to one another, the crows doing their plaintive cawing, I find myself imagining for a minute what a peaceful world this ll be when the people are gone, when the paved expanses are reclaimed by wildflowers and the birds have the full use of the sky The Sinker Keeping it shor [...]

    9. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2014 07 06 bThe Last Policeman series is simply awesome and underrated And now the trilogy has come to a close.Technically, these books would probably fit comfortably in the Crime Mystery Police Procedural category But there s a twist Imagine that for the past year, everyone has known that a giant killer asteroid is hurtling towards earth, set to impact in just a matter of days On Boomsday, tsunamis will wipe out the coasts, atmospheric dust will [...]

    10. Ben Winters closes out his trilogy of literary noirs set against an impending apocalypse in exactly the right way, staying true to the depressingly bleak yet somehow positively uplifting tone of the previous two books, thanks largely to his exceedingly well crafted protagonist Hank Palace.With just a week left to live Palace gives up companionship, relative safety, a regular source of food and a pleasant place to see out the end of the world in favour of hunting down his wayward younger sister l [...]

    12. Rating 4.5 of five, rounded up because they re my ratings and I get to do whatever the hell I want with emHow I missed posting my announcement of this review s appearance back in March I don t know Anyway, it s live at Expendable Mudge Muses Aloud, better known as my blog And in further proof that this is the Golden Age of Comics and SF Geekery, the trilogy s TV future is a step closer to assured at NBC.

    13. I m not even sure where to start this review, simply because I m not sure I m capable of producing a coherent one Or at least I m not sure I m capable of writing a reasonable, well thought out, unbiased review that will make me sound all smart and scholarly Not that I m saying anyone reads my reviews, and comes away with the idea that I m some sort of savant book whisperer I m anything but, and trying to write a review for World of Trouble, just emphasizes that point.Finishing this book, turning [...]

    14. Henry Palace can t stop being a policemen, even though he is no longer on the force and even though Earth will collide with an asteroid in a few days destroying all life He can t stop looking for answers, even though it doesn t matter any What he is looking for in this last book of the trilogy is his sister He didn t buy into her theory that a vast conspiracy is preventing a missing scientist from diverting the asteroid away from Earth, so they haven t parted on good terms and he needs to rectif [...]

    15. A strong ending to the trilogy.I almost felt that the middle book could ve been skipped, but the story is back on track in the third.Former detective Hank Palace s sister was last seen in a helicopter, zooming off with a cultlike group with seemingly far fetched plans to rescue an imprisoned physicist and save the world in a daring last minute bid to knock the asteroid that s headed for Earth out of its apocalyptic trajectory.Hank is feeling guilty that his last interaction with his sister invol [...]

    16. This was probably the most awaited book for me circa 2014 My anticipation was never disappointed And look at me, giving a 5 star rating in this genre, at that As I am no book snob, it isn t a first but it sure is a rarity.Ben H Winters trilogy just gets better and better The tension starts out slower at the beginning of the third and final World of Trouble and at that point my enjoyment was 4 star yet for the second whole half it went to a 6 Twists and unforeseen turns and still the kind of conc [...]

    17. Note I won this book in a Booklikes giveaway An excellent conclusion to a unique trilogy Acceptance of loss is a destination, not a journey Henry PalaceIf I was worried as to how Ben Winters would end his Last Policeman trilogy, I should not have been Winters managed it beautifully.In World of Trouble, Henry embarks on a quest to locate his sister, Nico Their last encounter ended on a sour note, and she disappeared before Henry had a chance to make things right Henry cannot bear the thought of f [...]

    18. Just scored the very last Vine copy of this baby I literally watched the button change to no available after I requested it I don t get those breaks often, which I can t help feel is ironic since it is a bigger break than Hank Palace is going to be catching by the end of the book The one thing I DO know about it UPDATEThis book is told just a few days from the asteroid Maia hitting the Earth and possibly ending all life on the planet Hank Palace leaves his cozy haven with fellow policemen to se [...]

    19. In this third and final instalment of The Last Policeman, the asteroid Maia is less than 2 weeks away from colliding with Earth Society has totally broken down and people are hunkering down for their last days with what food and water they can find Detective Hank Palace is perhaps the last decent human being left alive and leaving the safe compound he has helped set up with a group of like minded people, he sets off on a mission to find his sister, Nico, last seen with a bunch of unsavoury chara [...]

    20. One word underwhelmed, the final book in the trilogy left me unsatisfied and I personally feel that at some point during the writing of this trilogy the author just gave up, the first book was the best in this trilogy, it set up the environment, it gave us a good plot and some believable characters, but as the trilogy progressed it felt like the story got muddled and it is hard to rescue good point from the sequel, I tougth at least this third book since it would be the end had a lot to work fr [...]

    21. This is an extraordinarily hard review to try to write, as mostly I want to talk about my feelings toward the overall plot and the ending of that plot over the course of reading three books More specifically, I want to write about what started to worry me when reading this book, and whether or not those worries bore fruit There are going to be a lot of spoilers, people, and they are definitely the kind that would change your reading experience, so if you don t want to know than that, read no fu [...]

    22. I really like Hank Palace, a young man who is earnest beyond reason He s passionate about solving crimes and mysteries, even though he knows the earth is mere days away from destruction and devastation So what does it matter is the pervasive question When he sternly admonishes people about not touching anything in a crime scene, people don t quite know how to take it.Of course, part of his passion comes from this particular mystery He is compelled to find his beloved, impulsive, and rebellious y [...]

    23. FIVE STARS Really the entire THE LAST POLICEMAN trilogy should be read as one book, which is sort of how I did it, inhaling THE LAST POLICEMAN, COUNTDOWN CITY and WORLD OF TROUBLE in a little over 4 days.The third book is the best of the bunch, and first I thought that it was, by necessity, going to be towards the science fiction end of the scifi mystery axis that the books advertise themselves as The thing is, the INCREDIBLE emotional wallop WORLD OF TROUBLE punches wouldn t be nearly as poten [...]

    25. I received this book free from Library Thing in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review ere are not jostling anxious crowds outside, no frightened people rushing and pushing past each other in the streets No klaxon howl of car alarms, no distant gunfire The people are hidden now, those that remain, hidden under blankets or in basements, encased in their dread With mere weeks left before the impending asteroid makes impact with the ear [...]

    26. I both love and hate reading a series of books I love the familiarity of the characters and the settings, as it s kind of like spending time with old friends The downside, of course, is that a series eventually comes to an end, and while sometimes the conclusion is satisfying although you don t want it to end , many times it s disappointing.With that in mind, I approached World of Trouble, the final novel in Ben H Winters terrifically creative and emotionally powerful Last Policeman series, with [...]

    28. What a brilliant brilliant end to this already brilliant series Yes I ve said brilliant way too much here but there are only so many words available to describe things and this describes it, well, brilliantly.Hank Palace is a truly wonderful character In Book One he was determined to solve a murder even though the world was about to end In Book Two he was on the trail of a missing husband, once despite the fact that the end of the world was even closer The only man keeping his head whilst those [...]

    29. A harrowing and appropriate ending to a series that is at once an brilliant character study, a set of solid mysteries and an exploration of the fraying of social order If you haven t read the first two volumes, go, do it and then plunk yourself down for this final installment You won t regret the time or forget Hank Palace.
