The perfect ending

World of Trouble - Ben H. Winters

I won this ARC through Booklikes and wanted to say thank you with this review. 

"...and the world can't end with the crime unsolved. " So says Detective Palace, the fascinating protagonist in this, the third in the trilogy of The Last Policeman. I was so desperate to get to the end of this fascinating blend of mystery, thriller and end-times novel that I finished it in one sitting. One of the reasons I loved this novel was the author's sense of place. Without switching to jarring descriptive paragraphs, we are allowed to experience this world through the eyes of the characters. Everywhere the story goes, I am with them, like a shadow. As for the characters, each one is fleshed out and entirely essential to the story. There is not a single part of this book that is out of place. The ending was a warm exclamation point and masterfully done. 

If you like mysteries that are impossible to predict and a plot that is completely original , you will devour this book.
