    Part conventional mystery and part extistential problem - what would you do if you knew exactly when the end of the world was coming - this book entertains and elicits thought. Start with the first - The Last Policeman, continue with the Countdown City and hold your breath waiting for the last in the series.”. The unnamed narrator of The Third Policeman is obsessed with the bizarre philosopher de Selby, and in order to publish a book about de Selby, the narrator agrees to murder a man for his money. However, the narrator's partner in turn murders the narrator, who is thrust into a bizarre journey through the afterlife.

    Bruno, Chief of Police Series Martin Walker THE DELIGHTFUL, INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED SERIES FEATURING BRUNO, CHIEF OF POLICE. Benoît Courrèges, aka Bruno, is a former soldier turned policeman, who has embraced the pleasures and slow rhythms of country life in the idyllic village of St. Denis in the South of France. If there was ever a book that deserved to be listened to rather than read, The New Policeman is it. Not only because the writing has a distinct Irish lilt but because each short chapter ends with a musical score for an Irish jig, so unless one happens to be a dab hand on the keyboard, or better still, the fiddle, there is an element of the book that one misses out on (in fact it's a little.

    The middle name of all male characters end in "ovitch" and of all female characters in "ovna." This ending simply means "son of" or "daughter of" the father whose first name is converted into their middle name and is called a patronymic. For example, Rodya and Dunya's father was named Roman Raskolnikov. Thus, Rodya's middle name Rodion. I never really thought of The Last Policeman and its sequels as being “dystopian”, but they have been put in that category—just as they have been put in the science-fiction category, though I never thought of them that way, thing is, if you have a giant asteroid in your book, your book is sci-fi (like it or not), and if you have a slowly disintegrating government, your book is.
