Exit Music, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (4 ratings)

Description

A brilliant Rebus novel from the master of British crime. It's late autumn in Edinburgh and late autumn in the career of Detective Inspector Rebus.

As he tries to tie up some loose ends before retirement, a murder case intrudes.

A dissident Russian poet has been found dead in what looks like a mugging gone wrong.

By apparent coincidence, a delegation of Russian businessmen is in town - and everyone is determined that the case should be closed quickly and clinically. But the further they dig, the more Rebus and DS Siobhan Clarke become convinced that they are dealing with something more than a random attack - especially after a particularly nasty second killing.

Meanwhile, a brutal and premeditated assault on a local gangster sees Rebus in the frame.

Has the Inspector taken a step too far in tying up those loose ends?

Only a few days shy of the end to his long, inglorious career, will Rebus even make it that far?

I was actually a bit disappointed with this. Enjoyable, but nothing like the best of the series.

It has taken me a while to work my way through the whole Rebus series but here's the last one. I will really miss Rebus and have thoroughly enjoyed the series.

The novel is a reasonably good thriller, but reading Exit Music made me feel like I was reading a tourist guide to Edinburgh, hence the 2 stars.

If you have read the rest of the series you will also enjoy this installment. Presumed to be the last of the Rebus novels, but maybe not. Have heard a rumor that Rebus might start doing 'cold cases'.
