Some people love goodbyes...

23-year-old Catherine is mainly interested in Facebook and flirting, but she reluctantly takes a job at a local care home after her mother puts her foot down - and soon discovers that her new workplace
contains many secrets.

One of the residents at the home, 82-year-old Rose, is convinced that something sinister is going on in Room 7 and that her own life is under threat. But Rose has dementia - so what does she actually know, and who would believe her anyway?

As Catherine starts investigating Rose's allegations, terrible revelations surface about everyone involved. Can Catherine find out what's really going on before it's too late?

Praise for this book

"Dark, intelligent and thought-provoking, The Exit is one of those books that stays with you long after the last page. Helen Fitzgerald is fast becoming one of my favourite writers." - James Carol

"FitzGerald has created two characters you'll root for." - Eva Dolan

"An astonishingly powerful novel that deals beautifully with some serious issues - family, memory, growing up and growing old - before delivering a sucker punch that will leave you reeling. Helen FitzGerald is not afraid to take the reader into some very dark places and cements her growing reputation as one of the most daring and readable authors working today. The Exit is a masterpiece." - Mark Edwards

"FitzGerald brings a real authenticity to both women's voices ... Powerful and moving - almost unbearably so in places (although it never descends into anything cloying; there is just the right amount of cynicism and grit mixed in with the sentiment here, and every single bit rings true) - and frequently laugh-out-loud funny ... A superb book." - Steve Mosby
