He maintains that he wasn’t driving the car that left that woman dead. He’s almost positive that it was his best friend. The best friend who has since gone on and made it big with Richie’s ideas. The best friend who is now married to Richie’s then fiancé? The best friend who is now laying in the morgue.
Is it only irony that the man who stole his life is murdered after Richie’s release?
What I liked: It was amazing to me how fast I fell into the pages of this book. It was one of those reads that I just couldn’t put down and I’d practically growl if I was interrupted.
There will be some who won’t enjoy the time flop between chapters in the beginning, but I promise — it’s all worth it!
What I didn’t like: You’re going to laugh but my only problem with this book was that I had to think. I work in a techy field and must think all day every day and when I read I generally prefer mindless fun – yet, I will be re-reading this suspense!

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.
