What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die soon, anyway?
Asteroid 2011GV1, a.k.a. Maia, is an asteroid on a collusion course with Earth. The impact will be large enough to create an extinction event, killing humans, animals and plants. In March, the astronomers were finally able to confirm that Maia would hit Earth, and projected the date: October 3 around noon.
Earth had only six months left.
Hank Palace is a cop who was promoted to Homicide Detective years too early and given little training when the Concord Police Department became short-handed. Although he realizes he’s not as seasoned as he’d like to be, this is the job Hank has wanted since he was twelve.
Unfortunately, in the wake confirming Maia’s collusion with Earth, civilization is beginning to crumble. People respond to the death notice by committing suicide, others disappear from their jobs and live to pursue things they’ve always wanted to do. These people were called “bucket listers”. Still others gave into despair, seeking drugs, drink or violence as a way out.
It’s in this world that Hank Palace had is first challenging case.
