By the acclaimed author of the remarkable debut novel, Knife Music, 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.
Unfortunately I was not able to complete this book as scheduled. I very much apologize to all concerned and will post my review at a later date. Thanks for bearing with me.
While David Carnoy lives in New York City
with his wife and children, his novels take place in Silicon Valley,
where he grew up and went to high school (Palo Alto). His debut novel,
Knife Music (2010), was a Top-10 bestseller on the Kindle and also a
bestseller on the Nook. More medical thriller than high-tech thriller,
to research the novel Carnoy spent a lot of time talking with doctors,
visiting trauma centers, and trailed a surgeon at a hospital in Northern
California to help create the book's protagonist, Dr. Ted Cogan.
The Big Exit (2012) isn't a sequel to Knife Music per se. However, a few
of the characters from Knife Music figure prominently in the story. His
second novel has more of a high-tech slant and reflects Carnoy's
experiences as an executive editor at CNET.com, where he currently works
and is trying resolve his obsession with consumer electronics products.
He went to college at Wesleyan University and has an MFA in creative
writing from Columbia University.
