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?… (more)

A very good read. Will Rebus really retire ??? ( )
  BryceV | Dec 18, 2020 |
Probably a 3.75. A good solid Rankin/Rebus but without quite the page-turning grip of the later Rebus's. ( )

Als in Edinburgh der russische Dichter und Dissident Alexander Todorow ermordet wird, bleibt Inspector Rebus nicht viel Zeit, um die Wahrheit zu finden. In wenigen Tagen endet seine Dienstzeit, und er weiß, dass seine Vorgesetzten die Sache am liebsten schnell zu den Akten legen würden. Ihrer Ansicht fiel Todorow einem Raubüberfall mit tödlichem Ausgang zum Opfer, doch Rebus argwöhnt, dass russische Geschäftsleute etwas mit der Sache zu tun haben. Dann kommt ein möglicher Zeuge bei einem Brand ums Leben, und Rebus sieht seinen Verdacht bestätigt …

Die Suche nach dem Mörder eines russischen Lyrikers wird zur letzten Bewährungsprobe für Detective John Rebus.

Rebus's retiral. A good read, but the end seemed to me a bit iffy.
  Roarer | Nov 17, 2019 |
Rankin has all the elements: old, heavy drinking, renegade cop hero; trusty sidekick, new faces in the force pushing him out; ex-wife that you never see; vain, politically-minded boss; back-stage manipulations by the rich who usually get away. Rankin carries these off as well as anyone. After 17 tries with his detective Rebus he should be able to. ( )

Epigraph
"The frontier is never
somewhere else. And no stockades
can keep the midnight out"
Norman McCaig, 'Hotel Room, 12th floor'
My father always said a policeman's knock is unmistakable, and so it is, the rap on the paintwork a very public command, feasting on the hearer's capacity for guilt.
Andrew O'Hagan, Be Near Me
Dedication
First words
The girl screamed once, only the once, but it was enough.
