If I am not wrong, your official work will start when you report for work on the first day itself. So regardless if you've already signed the appointment letter, you still can decline the job by not turning up on the first day.

However bear in mind that doing so will only leave a bad impression with your organisation. Of course, I'm assuming you're referring to a job in the public sector. Note, you'll be surprised at how fast information travels around when you attempt to re-apply for a public sector job.

At the very least, I would suggest dropping your immediate boss and HR to inform them of your choice.
