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 its interests. And as Rebus's 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, controversial career, will Rebus even make it that far?

Another great Rebus story. It's a shame it's at the end of his career. These stories are every bit as good as Morse but for some reason I prefer the Rebus books but Morse is better on TV.

Great read. Caters to the Baby boomer who may be grappling with retirement and aging issues. The end of the Rebus series. Or is it. Read it then see if you can find any other Rankin novels to rival it. If you are a fan you will love it. If it is your first Rankin it should inspire you to search out the back catalogue and learn more about Rebus the detective and life in Edinburgh Scotland
