Detective Hank Palace returns
in Countdown City, the second volume of the Last
Policeman trilogy. There are just seventy-seven days before a deadly
asteroid collides with Earth, and Detective Palace is out of a job. With the
Concord police force operating under the auspices of the US Justice Department,
Hank’s days of solving crimes are over—until a woman from his past begs for help
finding her missing husband.
Brett Cavatone disappeared
without a trace—an easy feat in a world with no phones, no cars, and no way to
tell whether someone’s gone “bucket list” or just gone. With society
falling to shambles, Hank pieces together what few clues he can, on a search
that leads him from a college-campus-turned-anarchist-encampment to a crumbling
coastal landscape where anti-immigrant militia fend off “impact zone” refugees. Download and start listening now!
