Product Details

Praise

Nominated for the 2015 Edgar® Award for Best Paperback Original

“Stubborn, earnest, self-deprecating and decent, [Winters’s] protagonist, Hank Palace, is a brilliantly realized character you want to follow to the very end—and beyond.”—San Francisco Chronicle 

“Winters, a major talent, gives us the best realized world on the verge of annihilation that this reviewer has seen since Cormac McCarthy.”—Sci Fi Magazine

“Winters’ style is a slow burn….His cadence is a steady beat rather than a roller coaster, and his words sparing and simple. They will stay with you.” —William O’Connor, The Daily Beast

“Riveting entertainment.”—The A.V. Club
 
World of Trouble is a page turner, a book that is riveting and humane, suspenseful rather than frenetic, and moving rather than depressing; and the key to it all is our guide through this crumbling world. Palace is a brilliant creation, the perfect hero for our eschatological age.”—Tor.com

“More than a shining example of how to write about the apocalypse—it’s one of the most well-written mysteries of any era…World of Trouble is a book you don’t want to miss.”—Paste

“That Winters can paint for us a world that is so bared-boned, raw and honest is why this is one of the best books of the year so far.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

World of Trouble demonstrates a greater confidence in the storytelling, richer supporting characters, and an ending that I wanted to both race toward and hold off as long as possible.”—Indianapolis Business Journal

Praise for Countdown City
Winner of the 2014 Philip K. Dick Award
 
“I always appreciate novels that have new and interesting approaches to traditional genres, and Ben H. Winters’ two novels featuring Hank Palace fill the bill.”—Nancy Pearl, NPR
 
“Winters is brilliant in conveying the ways in which people look for their best impulses but often end up as the victims of other people’s most base instincts.”—Toronto Star
 
“Don’t miss this series!”—Sci Fi Magazine

“Winters is a deft storyteller who moves his novel effortlessly from its intriguing setup to a thrilling, shattering conclusion.”—Los Angeles Review of Books

Praise for The Last Policeman
Winner of the 2013 Edgar® Award Winner for Best Paperback Original
One of Slate’s Best Books of 2012
 
“[The] weird, beautiful, unapologetically apocalyptic Last Policeman trilogy is one of my favorite mystery series.”—John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns

“Winters’s apocalyptic detective story contains an earth-shattering element of science fiction that lifts it beyond a typical procedural.”—New York Times Book Review

“An appealing hybrid of the best of science fiction and crime fiction.”—The Washington Post

“In his acclaimed Last Policeman trilogy, Winters showed off his mastery of edgy, sardonic wit — there’s nothing like an asteroid speeding toward Earth to bring out the black humor in people.”—Newsday
