I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

A delicate mix of the locked room 'whoddunnit' and a nuclear induced apocalypse, The Last, explores the lives of 20 survivors trapped at L’Hotel Sixieme in Switzerland. The problem (beside the obvious)? One of them is a killer.

Haunting and terrifyingly realistic in its plausibility, the story is told through a series of diary entries from our unreliable (and often very douchy) narrator, Jon Keller. Saddled with tension, the entries flit between frantic (even manic) episodes to periods of calm detachment as survivors settle into their post-nuclear routines. Jameson raises interesting moral questions... what kind of person will you become in the face of an apocalyptic situation? What lengths would you go to survive?
