Exit: The brilliantly funny new crime novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of SNAP
About this deal
Lots of seemingly irrelevant characters were introduced (some with multiple names), and I started having trouble keeping them straight.
That’s my first waltz with the author and I’m so sorry for my years I wasted without reading any of her works. This is the fourth book that I’ve read by this talented author and each one has been completely unique in its own way. This book is filled with heart-warming characters, snappy dialogue, lots of humor, some crazy antics, two lovely dogs, and of course, why not a character with sensible eyebrows? Things go wrong, protocol is not followed by the newcomer, and Felix realizes that they have murdered a man who was not the client that was ready to die. Felix becomes proactive and energized and begins to investigate the cause of his horrible mistake after becoming suspicious that he and Amanda were set up.
Bauer injects the subject of assisted dying with wit and humour, but doesn't lessen the gravity of the subject at all. Awkward, but a potential learning mistake, until they discover the real client is still alive, and they’ve assisted his ailing, deadbeat son into the hereafter.
And all goes well as Felix attempts his last exiting with a new partner, until something goes incredibly wrong, and Felix finds himself on the run from the police. Even Calvin who comes from a corrupted family and his colleague Kristy were well crafted, unique characters. I really thought the book would delve more into the topic, and expected some insight, but I felt like the tone didn't match the subject matter.A really intriguing chain of events leads to some surprising outcomes and the unmasking of a villain purporting to be on the side of the angels. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all my friends and fellow readers, if for no other reason than as an introduction to Felix. The sick individuals must assemble the materials and administer the gas themselves, while the Exiteers - who work in pairs - merely sit by the bedside.
