The Last Murder at the End of the World: A Novel (B&N Exclusive Edition)
This Barnes and Noble Exclusive Edition features salmon-colored sprayed edges and contains a short story, (Almost) The Last Murder at the End of the World, which takes readers to a time just before the events of this novel, in which the deadly fog has just begun snaking its way around the world. A few (un)lucky survivors find themselves aboard The Mischief, a rescue boat searching for safe harbor, as they try to escape who they are and what they are to become…

From the bestselling author of The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle and The Devil and the Dark Water comes an inventive, high-concept murder mystery: an ingenious puzzle, an extraordinary backdrop, and an audacious solution.

Solve the murder to save what's left of the world.

Outside the island there is nothing: the world was destroyed by a fog that swept the planet, killing anyone it touched.

On the island: it is idyllic. One hundred and twenty-two villagers and three scientists, living in peaceful harmony. The villagers are content to fish, farm and feast, to obey their nightly curfew, to do what they're told by the scientists.

Until, to the horror of the islanders, one of their beloved scientists is found brutally stabbed to death. And then they learn that the murder has triggered a lowering of the security system around the island, the only thing that was keeping the fog at bay. If the murder isn't solved within 92 hours, the fog will smother the island—and everyone on it.

But the security system has also wiped everyone's memories of exactly what happened the night before, which means that someone on the island is a murderer—and they don't even know it.

And the clock is ticking.
