December Giveaway: Exit Music by Ian Rankin

Many thanks to Valerie at Hachette Book Group for giving us 5 copies of Ian Rankin's latest (and final???) book in the Inspector Rebus series. Originally published in 2007, this is a mass market reissue - I can't wait to get mine.  I've never read any of the series, and I suspect I'm going to be looking for one of the earlier ones very quickly.


Cover blurb from the publisher:

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?

About the Author

  25. I've never read any other novels in the Rebus series, but a friend of mine loves the books and this looks to be a good opportunity to give them a shot. I'm also on a Russian lit kick; essentially anything to do with Russia I will read! Please accept this as my entry. Thank you!
