It’s late in the fall in Edinburgh and late in the career of Detective Inspector John Rebus. As he is simply trying to tie up some loose ends before his retirement, a new case lands on his desk: a dissident Russian poet has been murdered in what looks like a mugging gone wrong.

Rebus discovers that an elite delegation of Russian businessmen is in town, looking to expand their interests. And as Rebus’ investigation gains ground, someone brutally assaults a local gangster with whom he has a long history.

Has Rebus overstepped his bounds for the last time? Only a few days shy of the end to his long, inglorious career, will Rebus even make it that far?

Quotes & Awards

  • “The murder inquiry weaves and wanders at its own gait, stopping to consider such matters as the prospect of Scottish independence and the parallels between Scottish and Russian history, until Mr. Rankin suddenly picks up the pace. As ever, with consummate ease, he brings his story into sharp focus for its home stretch and shows how closely all the stories’ seemingly unrelated events were actually connected…Elegiac as it is, Exit Music sustains the series’ cranky pleasures.”

    New York Times

  • Exit Music is a fitting end to the career of one of the most beguiling characters in the history of crime fiction—not because the lowering of the final curtain finds the audience satisfied but because it leaves them gasping for more.”

    Times (London)

  • “This may be Rebus’ swan song, but every page crackles with energy.”

    Daily Mail (London)

  • “Whatever he writes, it will be worth reading. What J. K. Rowling achieved in children’s fantasy—redefining the genre and changing publishing expectations—Rankin has achieved in detective fiction.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “Rankin has an unparalleled ability to draw in the reader and make us feel every knock and setback in Inspector Rebus’ red-raw life. Rarely has that talent been better displayed than in Exit Music.”

    Scotland on Sunday (Edinburgh)

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A 2008 Christian Science Monitor Book of the Year for Fiction
  • An Indie Next Notable Title, October 2008

    " I got to page 250 and there was a chunk missing. Like, 100 pages, gah. And I wasn't that into it anyway, so I stopped. "

    " An interesting and different ending to a series than one usually finds. Well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Brenda Hawley | 12/31/2013

    " The John Rebus novels are so realisitic, intense, colorful. John is an eccentric Edinburgh policeman succumbing to late middle age as the series ends with his retirement from the force. His organized crime nemesis who haunts the later books brings new life to John's job. I loved this series and hated to see it end. "
