 The Last Policeman

by Ben H. Winters

"The impending impact of asteroid 2011GV1, unaffectionately known as Maia, has given life on Earth only six more months. Rookie Detective Hank Palace is determined to stay on top of his caseload even though many of his old colleagues seem to have cashed in and are bucket-listing it from now on. Enter Peter Zell, or rather exit Peter, whose death is Palace's latest case. Any other cop would have let this apparent suicide go, but Palace is determined to do his duty when he senses something suspicious about the circumstances." -- Kirkus
