The original title of the book: Exit Music (A Rebus Novel)
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?
'Prepare yourselves: this is goodbye to Detective Inspector John Rebus, possibly the most famous of the plethora of fictional policemen. And it's a classic plot to send him on his way' SHORTLIST 'with just four days left in the job, Rebus gets himself suspended for insubordination - will he be able to solve the case in time? What is guaranteed is that Rebus heads into retirement the same chippy, curmudgeon that his millions of fans have grown to love' SUNDAY TIMES 'Fans will not be disappointed, while new readers will have the added delight of catching up with all the novels they have missed' THE TIMES 'As this (according to Rankin), the final outing for Rebus demonstrates, he is always ready to shake things up for his beleagured protagonist' GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'Rebus's swansong is a typically gritty affair, with the usual twists that Edinburgh's finest cop should surely expect as routine by now. Rankin's expertly crafted plot, vivid characters and pacy narrative means fans will lap this up' NEWS OF THE WORLD 'classic Rankin...a fantastic tale that exercises his familiar gift for grabbing a reader then taking them on a dark trip through high life and low life. Doors Open is a must-read novel from Scotland's King of Crime' WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY 'Rankin paints on a Hogarthian canvas that revels in a vast cast of fully-realized characters, a well-loved setting, a twisty plot, and a wry sense of irony' MYSTERY SCENE 'In this highly significant outing, the vigorous prose is matched (as ever) by a storytelilng ability that takes no prisoners' GOOD BOOK GUIDE
