The Last Policeman by Ben Winters
What would you do if you knew the world was coming to an end? With an asteroid on a collision course with Earth, suicide is rampant and millions around the globe walk away from their jobs to pursue their bucket lists. Crops rot in the field and cell phone towers fall into disrepair as the economy spirals downward. Despite the seeming hopelessness – or perhaps because of it – Hank Palace, a recently promoted homicide detective, is keeping his nose to the grindstone. In this surprising mystery, he's out to prove the dead body found in a local McDonald's isn't the suicide everyone else wants to believe it is, but murder.
