The Last Policeman | Ben Winters

29

Ben Winters, who wrote the notable Underground Airlines, has a new novel out. But I want to draw your attention to an earlier work, The Last Policeman. It is both a detective novel and classic end-of-the-world science fiction. Mournful and smart, it features an unusual protagonist: a purely good man.
