THE LAST

THE LAST

Hanna Jameson

BREAKING: Nuclear weapon detonates over Washington

Jon Keller was on a trip to Switzerland when the world ended. More than anything he wishes he hadn’t ignored his wife Nadia’s last message.

Twenty people remain in Jon’s hotel. Far from the nearest city, they wait, they survive.

Then one day, the body of a girl is found. It’s clear she has been murdered. Which means that someone in the hotel is a killer . . .

As paranoia descends, Jon decides to investigate. But how far is he willing to go in pursuit of justice? And what happens if the killer doesn’t want to be found?

 

The Last is a brilliantly executed novel, and the questions Jameson poses-who will be with you at the end of the world, and what kind of person will you be?-are as haunting as the plot itself. This is a chilling and extraordinary book (Emily St John Mandel, author of ‘Station Eleven’)

Dark, original, compelling (CJ Tudor, author of The Chalk Man)

A clever, original, scarily plausible white-knuckle read

(Erin Kelly, bestselling author of ‘He Said, She Said’)

A brilliantly imagined tale of suspicion, betrayal and survival in a world on the brink of extinction. One of those books that you can’t stop reading – but don’t want to end (TM Logan, bestselling author of ‘Lies’)

Stephen King meets Agatha Christie, in this fantastic and highly original novel that I’ll be recommending to readers for a long time to come. I loved every second of it! This is *the* book of 2019 (Luca Veste, author of ‘The Bone Keeper’)

Chillingly nightmarish – a gripping read

(Sophia Tobin, author of ‘The Silversmith’s Wife’)

Gripping, and thoroughly and frighteningly believable. I could not put this book down (Jennie Melamed, author of ‘Gather the Daughters’)
