Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

'Rankin has an unparalleled ability to draw in the reader and make us feel every knock and setback in Inspector Rebus's red-raw life. Rarely has that talent been better displayed than in Exit Music which sees the flawed but redeemingly honest central character staggering towards the finishing line of an inglorious career that has utterly defined his life' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 'the main theme of the book is civic corruption by the power of money, money from whatever source. Always up to the minute, Rankin has Russian oligarchs or something similar lurking on the streets of Edinburgh and the murder of a Russian poet is directly counterpointed to the death throes of the real life Russian, Litvinenko... As Rankin percipiently observes, the problem is the overworld not the underworld - words which might well sum up the philosophy of Rankin's whole ouevre' -- Antonia Fraser THE SPECTATOR 'The last scene bringing together Rebus and Cafferty, is a sly, ingenious reworking of Holmes's apparently fatal tussle with Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls - another Scottish author attempting to retire his detective but failing, you can't help but notice. The possibility of Rebus returning is conspicuously left open' -- John Dugdale SUNDAY TIMES 'The title Exit Music serves a dual meaning - not just Rebus's exit from the police but also the possibility of Scotland's wishing to leave the Union with England after the recent election results...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' -- Marcel Berlins THE TIMES 'It would, of course, be criminally bad form to reveal the precise manner of John Rebus's final exit - but I think most readers will find the music more or less note-perfect' -- Mark Billingham DAILY MAIL 'Throughout the entire series, Rankin's strength has been his ability to get under the skin of Edinburgh's pyschogeography: he vividly describes 'a city...of banking and brothels, virtue and vitriol' where underworld meets overworld. Deftly plotted and awash with sarky one-liners Exit Music is no exception' METRO 'Rankin's understanding of the man in the street gives special weight to the thread of nationalism which recurs throughout the book. It is exactly because Rebus is non-political - his complaints about the cost of the Parliament Building in Exit Music are as unreflective and herd-minded as the average cab driver - that his acceptance of the inevitability of independence carries such conviction' GLASGOW HERALD 'This may be Rebus's swansong but every page crackles with energy. Ian's skill and pawky wit make even the most routine interview a pleasure to read...After 20 years and 17 novels, the old bastard will be missed. Rebus, that is. Rankin will no doubt go on to even greater things' -- Mark Sanderson DAILY MAIL 'a classic Rankin' (Five Star Review) DAILY MIRROR 'An elegiac tone pervade Exit Music, a timely wistfulness designed to put you off your guard. Hard to say much else without giving the game away - just brace yourself for a stoater of a cliffhanger ending' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Rebus's final case - a satisfyingly enjoyable farewell' SUNDAY TIMES 'Whatever he writes, it will be worth reading. For the retirement Rebus, there will not have been bookshops opening at midnight and lines of excited readers dressed as over-weight, near-alcoholic, smoking Scottish cops but such fuss would have been justified. What his Edinburgh neighbour achieved in children's fantasy - redefining the genre and changing publishing expectations - Rankin has achieved in detective fiction' -- Mark Lawson THE GUARDIAN 'The first thing to say is that in the Rebus novels Rankin has not only produced the most sustained body of fiction devoted to modern Edinburgh, but has made it once again a city of the mind as Dickens made London and Chandler Los Angeles. He has changed the way people imagine the city. -- Allan Massie THE SCOTSMAN 'The detection in these fascinating books has always been secondary to the relationships between detectives and the portrait of Edinburgh...Perhaps our hero shoudl stand for the Scottish Parliament' -- Jessica Mann LITERARY REVIEW 'After 20 years together, both Rebus and Rankin are at the height of their respective powers, and this web of intrigue is as good as detective drama gets' GLASGOW EVE TIMES 'I can't for a moment believe this will be the last Rebus novel, but it's definitely the end of a very long chapter' -- Peter Gutteridge OBSERVER 'The uncertain postcolonial politics of present-day Scotland is cynically woven together with the dodgy business dealings of new Russian billionaires and old Scots gangsters. Rankin's Edinburgh is, as always, a completely convincing stage for high-flying wheeler dealing as well as low-life veniality' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT 'Factor in the involvement of shady Russian oligarchs; thehead honchos of Scotland's national bank; a couple of ruthless MSPs; and Rebus's nemesis, local gangster Big Ger Cafferty, and you have the makings of a ripely entertaining tale' TIME OUT 'Sharply written, thoroughly gripping, seventeen books and Rankin's still on top form' DAILY SPORT 'How much do we have to bribe Rankin to bring this one (Rebus) back?' DAILY RECORD 'I believe he (Rebus) will return in some form or other. He is too successful a character to stay off the bestseller lists for long' IRISH TIMES 'Utterly compelling REVIEWING THE EVIDENCE .COM 'the eighteenth in Ian Rankin's wonderful series about the hard-drinking, Seventies-music-loving, authority-hating Edinburgh detective' THE TABLET 'Rankin cleverly brings his famous character's career to a close' CHOICE 'Rankin is on top form in this one' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'Ian Rankin whose last Rebus book is as fine example of its form as you could hope for' -- Stuart Kelly SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 'Exit Music is up to Rankin's usual standard and it'll be a pity if it is his swansong' -- Vincent Banville IRISH EXAMINER 'I enjoyed the retirement party Ian Rankin threw for his gloomy Inspector Rebus in Exit Music. After 17 books - this lsat a swirl of Tartan gangsters and dead Russian dissidents - the old warhorse was long overdue a nice sit-down and a stiff drink' -- Sam Leith DAILY TELEGRAPH 'The 'last' Rebus is one of the best' -- Allan Massie THE SCOTSMAN 'No prizes for guessing the crime fiction event of the year. What with a final showdown with his long-time nemisis Big Ger Cafferty, this is a fitting send off for Rebus, and quite right too. He's the reason for the phenomenal success of this series, the kind of loveable rogue who's not above picking up a few signed copies of a victim's last book to punt on e-bay. Pure class' METRO

Synopsis

It's late autumn in Edinburgh and late autumn in the career of Detective Inspector John Rebus. As he tries to tie up some loose ends before retirement, a murder case intrudes. A dissident Russian poet has been found dead in what looks like a mugging gone wrong. By apparent coincidence a high-level delegation of Russian businessmen is in town, keen to bring business to Scotland. The politicians and bankers who run Edinburgh are determined that the case should be closed quickly and clinically. But the further they dig, the more Rebus and his colleague DS Siobhan Clarke become convinced that they are dealing with something more than a random attack - especially after a particularly nasty second killing. Meantime, a brutal and premeditated assault on local gangster 'Big Ger' Cafferty sees Rebus in the frame. Has the Inspector taken a step too far in tying up those loose ends? Only a few days shy of the end to his long, inglorious career, will Rebus even make it that far?

So I was quite excited to come into possession of an advance readers copy of this book a few weeks ago. I have to keep mum as to how this happened but it is kind of cool to get to read it before the general public! I won't give anything away other than to say this is a fitting end to the series, and another great read. The story starts out with the death of a Russian poet who at first appears to have been the victim of a mugging. However after a little digging there is more here than meets the eye. Rebus soon fears he may have dug a little too deep. Its sad to see the career of Inspector Rebus come to an end, but what a ride! Along with Tino Georgiou's wonderful 'The Fates' this is the best novel of the year so far. I really can't imagine any fan being disappointed with it.

8 von 8 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Andreas Gauf am 8. September 2007
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
....aber mit einem starken letzten Auftritt! Nummer 17 der 20-jährigen DI Rebus-Geschichte führt uns durch die letzten 10 Tage vor seiner Pensionierung. Keine ruhigen Tage, um den Schreibtisch gemütlich aufzuräumen. Erstmal stürzen sich Rebus und Clarke in die Ermittlungen, um den Mord an einem russischen Schriftsteller in Edinburgh aufzuklären. Rankin entwickelt wieder eine komplexe Geschichte, diesmal im Kontext der schottischen Unabhängigkeitsbestrebungen vor den Wahlen zum Scottish Parliament. Auch russische Geschäftleute, die sich kreuz und quer in Schottland einkaufen, spielen eine Rolle. Rebus wäre aber nicht er selbst, wenn er nicht mit einem großen Knall in den Ruhestand gehen würde..... Spannende Geschichte für unterhaltsame Lesestunden!

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The story in itself is interesting and well told- better than the last instalment of the Rebus series. Rebus had mellowed in the last books and now he really is back as a complex character and not an entirely likeable one. His old problems with authority are back with a vengeance. Exit Music tells the story of Rebus' last case and his last ten days before retirement.Rankin said in interviews that he was still undecided as to whether Rebus will return or not. The ending of Exit Music is very good as it shows as a very dark side of Rebus' psyche and the true nature of his relationship with Cafferty. From my point of view this is one of Rankin's best.

James MacPherson is the Frank Sinatra auf audio books! His readings are always superb but this time it is his best yet. He gives an authentic voice to each character and understands the dynamics of the book perfectly. The five CD format is a good abridgement of the book. The story in itself is interesting and well told- better than the last instalment of the Rebus series. Rebus had mellowed in the last books and now he really is back as a complex character and not an entirely likeable one. His old problems with authority are back with a vengeance.

Exit Music actually has been my first Rebus experience overall. Sorry to the Rankin community for that! But it won't be my last - I loved being on duty with John and Siobhan, so I just ordered the first novels of the series.

Rebus is authentic, congenial and easily imaginable - that's the beauty of Rankin's creation for me. The setting in real-life Edinburgh makes it incredibly tangible for anybody who's ever visited the city.
As a deep admirer of Scotland I really enjoyed listening to the audio book, lively read with that amiable Scottish accent. I'm looking forward to exploring Rebus' earlier years over the next months.

Das Beste, was ich von Rebus gelesen habe! Ohne Einschränkungen! Warum muß der Kerl tatsächlich in Pension gehen - haben die wirklich einen noch besseren (und jüngeren) in Edinburgh? Ich kann's nicht glauben! Hoffentlich kriegt er wenigstens im Ruhestand seine Siobhan zurück - wäre ihm sehr zu vergönnen.Aber ob die auch als Chefin der Kriminalisten ein Ersatz sein kann?...
