In a way reading this book was slightly tinged with sadness as I knew that this was the last Rebus adventure to enjoy. There are still surprises for the reader though as we seem to learn more about Rebus and what drives him than we have before. A good story, with quite a few twists and the tying up of some loose ends for those that have read the series. Definitely a recommended read.
After reading Dead Souls I felt that I had to pick Exit Music up from the bookcase and read it straight away. This book is Rebus' last outing and covers his last few days as a Police officer before retirement.
Rebus being Rebus means that things are of course not at all straightforward. He was planning a few quiet days in the office whilst trying to get Siobhan to help him tie up a few loose ends. Things did not go according to plan though when a dissident Russian was found dead. As Rebus and his old team start looking into it further it becomes apparent that it may be something more than a random attack, especially when Rebus finds Big Ger Cafferty's as part of the investigation.
