The sensational new crime novel from the bestselling author of Snap, perfect for fans of Richard Osman's The Thursday Murder Club.
'Fresh, funny, flawless. The best crime novel you'll read this year.'
IT WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE MURDER . . .
Pensioner Felix Pink is about to find out that it's never too late . . . for life to go horribly wrong.
When Felix lets himself in to Number 3 Black Lane, he's there to perform an act of charity: to keep a dying man company as he takes his final breath . . .
But just fifteen minutes later Felix is on the run from the police - after making the biggest mistake of his life.
Now his world is turned upside down as he must find out if he's really to blame, or if something much more sinister is at play. All while staying one shaky step ahead of the law.
'Quirky, charming, intensely human, important . . . and very suspenseful. I loved it.'
'Belinda Bauer's fiction teems with life.'
Fresh, funny, flawless: EXIT is a joy from start to finish.
Bauer's unique trademark strengths make EXIT quirky, charming, intensely human, important . . . and very suspenseful. I loved it.
EXIT is ingeniously plotted and every word is perfect. It’s a rare book that has you turning the pages impatiently, desperate to solve the mystery, all the while never wanting it to end because it’s such a joy to read. Felix Pink is the most loveable killer in recent fiction.
Twisty, brilliantly plotted and funny too. Felix Pink is a wonderful character and I just wanted to hug him. (He'd be horrified!)
Cleverly plotted, touching and funny.
EXIT is the perfect antidote to the nervy gloom of this shut-down world. It's warm and funny and dark and sad all at the same time, beautifully plotted and paced, and peopled with fabulous, complex characters that have drawn me right into their lives. Felix is fast becoming one of my favourite fictional characters.
[Belinda Bauer] is such an interesting writer - a restless intelligence that always goes its own way, but always comes up with something that feels both surprising but inevitable.
