By Ian Rankin (Audiobook, 2008)
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 their 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, inglorious career, will Rebus even make it that far?

  • "Anyone who turns to genre fiction for escapist reading is well advised to stay clear of Ian Rankin's hard-boiled procedurals featuring Inspector John Rebus . . . Rankin is a flinty realist with little use for the romantic heroes that allow series detectives to operate above the fray of real life lived in real time." (on The Naming of the Dead) (New York Times).

  • "James Gale's Scottish brogue and intensity of emotion combine for a strong portrayal of Detective Inspector John Rebus, who is trying to solve the serial murders of recently released sex offenders and resolve his brother's death, all against the backdrop of the G8 summit being held outside Edinburgh." (on The Naming of the Dead) (AudioFile Magazine).

  • "Rankin's prose bursts from the pages with a frenzy that matches the urgency of the plot." (on The Naming of the Dead) (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).
