By the acclaimed author whose remarkable first novel, Knife Music, earned him the number one spot 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. When his ex–best friend—the man who stole his fiancée while he was in prison—is found hacked to death in his garage, Richie becomes 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, irresistible thriller that is sure to chill and delight.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A thriller set in California’s Silicon Valley that has it all…This exceptionally satisfying murder puzzle should whet readers’ appetites for more.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “Twisty and dark, this addictive thriller (after the self-published Knife Music) showcases Carnoy’s ability to surprise the reader.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Colorful characters abound in Carnoy’s legal caper…Carnoy knows the territory perfectly, and with judicious use of clever phrases that never distract from the crime caper, he’s spot on with his characterizations, all of which seem both archetypal and yet sparkling with individual personalities and interesting back stories. Add an intriguing semi-red herring or two, and the climax comes with a satisfying twist. A first-rate crime caper.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “R. C. Bray’s fully voiced reading of this excellent thriller grabs immediately…Realistic, witty dialogue; believable characters; a complex plot; nicely described setting on the Peninsula south of San Francisco where most dot com companies are located; a real surprise of an ending, plus Bray’s perfect pacing and masterful voicing of the many characters make this a special legal thriller. Not to be missed.”

    Soundcommentary.com (starred review)

  • “Carnoy’s skilled backstory navigation in this follow-up to his well-received debut, Knife Music, invites new readers to jump right in…The characters’ round-robin of distrust will keep readers guessing, and the ever-present humor (ranging from sharp irony to snort-worthy scenes) warrants a recommendation on its own.”
