Overview

World of Trouble (Last Policeman Series #3) by Ben H. Winters

Critically acclaimed author Ben H. Winters delivers this explosive final installment in the Edgar Award winning Last Policeman series. With the doomsday asteroid looming, Detective Hank Palace has found sanctuary in the woods of New England, secure in a well-stocked safe house with other onetime members of the Concord police force. But with time ticking away before the asteroid makes landfall, Hank’s safety is only relative, and his only relative—his sister Nico—isn’t safe. Soon, it’s clear that there’s more than one earth-shattering revelation on the horizon, and it’s up to Hank to solve the puzzle before time runs out…for everyone.

Really enjoyed the idea and character development. Too many books focus on the actual end, but here, as in life it is the journey that's really important.

This conclusion to the “Last Policeman” trilogy finds Detective Hank Palace embarked on a private quest: to find his sister Nico in the days before an asteroid collides with earth. Palace doesn’t have to. He could instead ride out his last days in an otherwise-safe redoubt with some other cops and their kids, including Officer Trish McConnell, with whom he has developed a thing during the second book. But the various drives that impel him – the detective needing to uncover the truth, the loyal older brother needing to protect his little sister no matter what, the Don Quixote taking on lost causes – push him onto a journey through pre-Doomsday America, hundreds of miles west to a small town in Ohio, on a bicycle, accompanied by sidekick Cortez and pet dog Houdini. It’s a bleak book. With time getting short for humanity, some people hunker down, suspicious of all strangers and ready to drive them off with a gun. Some think that with enough supplies and buried deep enough, they can ride it out. A few maintain civility and kindness, some just because, and one group that’s been kept in the dark about what’s really going on. And some let loose with their worst behavior. Palace must consider another scenario. Nico is part of some group sure that the catastrophe could be avoided, that the government wasn’t telling the truth, that the asteroid might be deflected with rocket-launched nukes. And he’s seen some evidence of a larger, well-oiled effort, notably the helicopter on which Nico rescues him during the second book. Is Nico really on to something? As the time ticks down toward the expected impact, Palace continues his lonely drive, for his sister and for the truth.

Enjoyed it. Would have liked the story to go on and on but, you know. It's kind of the end of the world and all. Or is it?

The first book started very well and the characters were very interesting...I bought the series based on the first part of book 1. The story dragged on the last half of book 1 and failed to hold my interest due to the lack of action. I would NOT recommend buying the series. It was a waste of money.
