‘The Last,’ by Hanna Jameson

Novel, 2019

Post-apocalyptic story of twenty survivors of nuclear war, holed up in a Swiss hotel, and central character’s pursuit of the killer of a child discovered in the water tanks up on the roof. While this is a lively read for much of the time, the pace and actions going on can leave the inattentive reader working out the different characters as they go along, perhaps a little more than they might want to. The book does have a gloomy feel and there are some nice switches and reveals and the main narrator, although there’s also plenty of apocalypse tropes and the odd sections of dialogue which feel a little off. Still, an entertaining read.
