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 - and everyone is determined that the case should be closed quickly and clinically.

But the further they dig, the more Rebus and DS Siobhan Clarke become convinced that they are dealing with something more than a random attack - especially after a particularly nasty second killing. Meanwhile, a brutal and premeditated assault on a local gangster 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?

An excellent read and I did like the political background woven into the plot.

The book gets bogged down with a political aspect, although relevant due to nationality of the first dead victim. However, when Rebus solves the mystery the reason for the crime is a domestic dispute...so why the time spent on the red herrings? Other than that compliant, I enjoyed the plotting, Rebus' relationship with Siobhan, and the idea that even good guys can do wrong.

It looks like it's time for Detective Inspector Rebus to make room for the new generation. He had a good run
