Pre Pub Book Buzz: The Last by Hanna Jameson

Sometimes reading the Frankfurt deals seems a little (a lot) daunting as an agent. And as a reader they're so far out that remembering which books I want to look out for seems futile. But sometimes they stick with you. Like the announcement in 2017 that Viking had won an auction for Hanna Jameson's The Last. And now it's finally right around the corner!

Well, it's coming out in early 2019, so that's practically around the corner.

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

BREAKING: Nuclear weapon detonates over Washington
BREAKING: London hit, thousands feared dead.
BREAKING: Munich and Scotland hit. World leaders call for calm.

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?

I think this sounds super fantastic and am dying to get my hands on a copy!

The Last is due out in January from Viking.
