Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The sensational new crime novel from the best-selling author of Snap.

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 kindness and charity: to keep a dying man company as he takes his final breath....

But just 15 minutes later Felix is on the run from the police - after making the biggest mistake of his life. Now his routine world is turned upside down as he tries to discover what went wrong, while staying one step ahead of the law. 

Exit is the heart-pounding, heart-breaking and often hilarious new novel from Sunday Times best-selling author Belinda Bauer.

An unexpected delight

Following India Knight’s nudge to read this book in her Sunday Times column, I tried it. What a wonderful performance of this delightful book. Funny with dry humour, kind, caring, empathetic, and a mystery to unravel, what should be a sad subject was completely uplifting. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

My favourite Bauer - against stiff competition

An absolute gem of a book - rounded, purposeful characters; twisty; kind; poignant and very very funny. I wholeheartedly recommend it. Tim McInnerny is a perfect, sometimes hilarious, narrator. Loved loved loved it.

hilarious & heartwarming

Was not expecting this, as its the first BB book I have listened to/read. It is beautifully written (and with proper grammar not 'was stood' etc) - and with really likeable characters. It is laugh-out-loud in plenty of places, even though not always an amusing subject. Definitely recommended!

Fantastic

I feel like I’ve waited a long time for another Belinda Bauer novel but this was definitely worth the wait. And such a treat to have Tim McInnerny reading! A bit of a twisty tale this one, with the usual array of nicely drawn characters- some familiar & some new.

5 Stars no problem!

I loved this book and gave it 5 stars as I did not want it to end , always a good sign. Belinda Bauer writes beautifully crafted, intelligent and funny books .Exit is no exception .It has a murder mystery at its centre but it is the wonderful characters she has created with warmth and humour that are the most interesting part of this book. Beautifully narrated by Tim McInnerney. Choose this book If you want a real treat .

Bereft!

LOVED this from beginning to end - although I did not want to finish it. I do feel bereft without all the wonderfully written characters . I cried and laughed out loud in equal measure. Tim McInnery was simply perfect - Belinda Bauer must be thrilled to have her excellent book so brilliantly read.

Gripping and entertaining

Gasped out loud several times! So engagingly written with such entertaining characters. Occasionally a bit too discursive and rambling for me, but that's a minor quibble. If you enjoy Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie books, you should like this.

Brilliant!!

One of my favourite books this year. I laughed I cried I couldn’t stop reading. I will recommend it to all my reading friends and now look for more books written by Belinda Bauer. She’s a terrific author. Yes this is so worth a read.

The most delightful listen I have had in a while

From the Guy Ritchie tie-in plot, the characters, the very English descriptions, the subtle humour & the beautiful voice of the narrator - this has had me chuckling throughout the novel. Needed this kind of book in my playlist - thank you Belinda

Charming and terrific plot

Really liked the warmth for the characters and the unexpected plot twists
Did I miss the time period it was set? I couldn’t really work out of it was the early 2000’s and for some reason this was a bit distracting.

Belinda Bauer never disappoints.

It's official. I'm a confirmed Belinda Bauer fan. I really enjoyed the Exmoor trilogy, but I liked Exit even more. What an unusual story and the old men were surprisingly intriguing characters.

While I think Tim Mcinerney is a wonderful film and TV actor, and he certainly has a beautiful voice, I was rather disappointed with his range of character voices. His women's voices were dreadful and the varied police officers, male and female, were made to sound like pantomime yokels. What a pity the chap who read two of the Exmoor books could not have read this.

I look forward to listening to every Belinda Bauer book I can find.
