"The Big Exit" Book Tour

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 fiancee 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.

"The Big Exit" is a suspenseful thrill ride through the high stakes world of Silicon Valley start-ups. 

Fresh out of prison, after being incarcerated for a crime he has no memory of committing, Richie Forman tries to settle back into his life in the Bay Area. By day, he works for minimum wage at a low firm dedicated to freeing innocent men from prison. By night, he makes a living impersonating Frank Sinatra in lounges and corporate parties. 

But then his ex-best friend, the man who was with Richie on the fateful night he was arrested and who stole Richie's fiancee while he was in prison, is found murdered in his garage and Richie becomes the prime suspect. Caught between the police and the murdered man's associates, Richie quickly finds himself with no one to trust. As the case grows ever complicated, Richie must play it as cool as Ol' Blue Eyes in order to stay out of jail and to stay alive.

If you are a fan of murder mysteries, you will probably like bouncing through all the bumps, turns, twists, and crisscrossing to a surprise who-done-it ending.
