Exit Music is Ian Rankin’s last track for DI Rebus’s LP of working life. Set in the week running up to retirement Rebus and DS Siobhan Clarke (or most often than not simply ‘Clarke’ suggesting that she’ll soon be stepping into Rebus’s solitary shoes) start off investigating the murder of a dissident Russian poet and end up untangling the investment strategies of the pre credit crunch Russian oligarchs, and the attempted murder of Big Ger Cafferty.
A sad swansong.
Au revoir Rebus.
