Product Description

By the acclaimed author whose remarkable first novel, Knife Music, earned him the No. 1 spot (40,000 copies sold) on the Kindle Legal Thriller chart, The Big Exit is a suspenseful crime novel that keeps the surprises coming right up to the end.

Richie Forman is freshly out of prison. By night, he makes a living impersonating Frank Sinatra in San Francisco’s lounges and corporate parties. But then his ex-best friend - the man who stole his fiancée while he was in prison - is found hacked to death in his garage, and Richie is the prime suspect. In a murder mystery with the twists and turns of a microchip, Carnoy weaves his characters like a master. He has written an authentic, unputdownable thriller that is sure to chill and delight.

Praise for the work of David Carnoy:

"Gripping, suspenseful, totally believable - and shockingly good." —Harlan Coben

"A gripping thriller debut that is just what the doctor ordered." —Kirkus Discoveries

"This exceptionally satisfying murder puzzle should whet readers’ appetites for more." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The snap and wit of Carnoy's language freshens familiar types: the celebrity lawyer, the manic cyber journalist, the cynical babe." —BN.com

"Without being overwrought, Carnoy achieves that difficult balance between reality and opportunity, the get-rich-quick mentality of the tech market and the oversized egos it spawns in the digital age where everyone's a reporter but no one's a journalist and public perception is more important than fact. Throw in real detective work and complicated personalities, and Carnoy's formula is near perfect. Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride couldn't have a more diverse set of players- all of whom work remarkably well together in bringing the case to its shocking conclusion." —Luan Gaines, Curled Up with a Good Book

David Carnoy is an executive editor at CNET and is interviewed regularly on television as a tech expert, appearing on CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, The Huffington Post, and other media outlets. His acclaimed thriller Knife Music is available from Overlook. He lives in New York City with his wife and children.
