I've loved this series for nearly twenty since finding a copy of Knots and Crosses at a friends house on a trip to London. Over the years in the Rebus books Ian Rankin created a great series of characters and plots that never failed to please.This book is purported to be the last in the John Rebus mysteries and I am extremely sad to see this series end.
Exit Music has the usual characters such as Ger Cafferty and DS Siobhan Clarke, plot twists and descriptions of Edinburgh that make this series so great. Tom Cotcher does a wonderful job reading this book and all the characterizations and accents are first rate.
You don't need to have listened to the previous volumes to enjoy this book but I highly recommend them as well.
I hope that we will see Rebus in some future books if only to find out how he is coping with his retirement.
In combining the personal and scientific story of Einstein Walter Isaacson has truly created a moving and highly entertaining biography. From his early triumphs as a Swiss patent examiner when he made his earliest breakthroughs to his quixotic quest for a "unified field theory" and his connection to the Jewish people I loved this book. If I were a Pulitzer voter I would give it a Pulitzer for biography. Edward Herrmann narrates with great care and I was able to follow the complex scientific parts with ease. If you download this book you will not be disappointed.
