A New (to me) Author

Exit is the most unlikely police procedural/
I laughed out loud.  I gasped.  I was constantly surprised.  These things do not happen with regularity on their own; to find all three in one book is unlikely.

Many characters are old... really old, the kind of old that involves figuring out how to get up off the floor when everything hurts. Many characters die.  Each of the characters is a distinct personality; there are lots of them and it's easy remember who's who.  That is unlikely.

The story unfolds as if it's somewhere in the middle of a series.  I kept checking to be sure it's a stand alone story.  I have narrative lust - I want to know that even the minor characters will reappear sometime.  Sadly, I think that is unlikely, too.

Unlike Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi (I apologize if you read Call me Zebra on my recommendation - I could barely finish it and still don't know what happened)  Belinda Bauer  is an author worth revisiting.  And, best of all, she has written other stories - and some of them are serials.


  1. Thanks for the recommendation. I just put in a request at the library.

    1. Glad to return the favor - what I miss most about being off Facebook are your book recommendations!

  2. My interese has been piqued and I will look for these.
