The Last Policeman

The Last Policeman - Ben H. Winters 3.5 stars

This pre-apocalyptic, noir-ish police procedural was an impulse read and therefore my expectations weren't too high, but I ended up enjoying it. The writing is solid and goes by quickly, and as reviewers before me noted the book felt like the perfect length. The protagonist is a bit annoying at points and his motivations are unclear, but since this is the first book in a proposed trilogy that's understandable, as there is still plenty of time for revelations, and I have a feeling the author is capable of keeping up his pace for the remainder of the plot. I've added the sequel to my to-read list.
