Mailbox Monday (2)


Week 2 for me ... I received two really great books this week, both of which I'll be reviewing. Have any of you read these? Check out  My first Mailbox Monday!

A Lovely, Indecent Departure by Steven Lee Gilbert [Book Depository | Amazon]:
The riveting and emotionally-charged debut from a promising new voice in literary thrillers, and a captivating story about a mother’s love and desperation set amidst the heart wrenching landscape of child custody.

The Last Policeman: A Novel by Ben Winters [Book Depository | Amazon]:
What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die soon, anyway? Detective Hank Palace has faced this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. There’s no chance left. No hope. Just six precious months until impact. The Last Policeman presents a fascinating portrait of a pre-apocalyptic United States. The economy spirals downward while crops rot in the fields. Churches and synagogues are packed. People all over the world are walking off the job—but not Hank Palace. He’s investigating a death by hanging in a city that sees a dozen suicides every week—except this one feels suspicious, and Palace is the only cop who cares.
