A WONDERFUL book! The lead character continues on, trying to do the right thing (solve a homicide) despite the fact that a massive asteroid is about to wipe out the world. This author really draws you in, not only with his characters and story, but his apparent understanding of human nature. The world he presents: corporations shutting down because CEOs are living their "bucket lists", rampant murders and riots, people giving up, etc. The fact that his lead character STILL has such a focus on doing the right thing, really drew me in. The character's work associates, and family (sister Nico) also present some interesting side stories. Bottom line: this is a wonderful, couldn't put it down, book. I have no idea when the next book will be released, but I am very much looking forward to it.
