Hank Palace #2: Countdown City
There are just 74 days to go before a deadly asteroid collides with Earth. With the Concord police force operating under the auspices of the US Justice Department, detective Hank Palace's days of solving crimes are over, until a woman from his past begs for help finding her missing husband. With society falling to shambles, Hank pieces together what few clues he can, on a search that leads him from a college campus turned anarchist encampment to a crumbling coastal landscape where anti-immigrant militia fend off impact zone refugees.
