Today we are ecstatic to host the cover reveal for World of Trouble by Ben H. Winters, the third and final novel in the Edgar Award-winning Last Policeman trilogy. Thea is a fan of the series, having read and loved The Last Policeman as well as sequel Countdown City. (We even hosted an alternate cover reveal for Countdown City, as you might recall!)
Without further ado, behold: the Smugglerific Cover!
The Smugglerific Cover
Critically acclaimed author Ben H. Winters delivers this explosive final installment in the Edgar Award winning Last Policeman series. With the doomsday asteroid looming, Detective Hank Palace has found sanctuary in the woods of New England, secure in a well-stocked safe house with other onetime members of the Concord police force. But with time ticking away before the asteroid makes landfall, Hank’s safety is only relative, and his only relative—his sister Nico—isn’t safe. Soon, it’s clear that there’s more than one earth-shattering revelation on the horizon, and it’s up to Hank to solve the puzzle before time runs out . . . for everyone.
World of Trouble comes out on July 15, 2014 from Quirk Books.
