Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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)
