About the Book

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?

  • Helen FitzGerald

    Helen FitzGerald is the bestselling author of Dead Lovely (2007) and nine other adult and young adult thrillers, including My Last Confession (2009), The Donor (2011) and most recently The Cry (2013), which was longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year. Helen has worked as a criminal justice social worker for over ten years. She is one of thirteen children and grew up in Victoria, Australia. She now lives in Glasgow with her husband and two children.

“Rose Prince is an 82-year-old children's author who has stumbled upon some sinister goings-on in her care home. The problem is that as she's suffering from dementia, nobody will believe her. Elizabeth is Missing covers some of the same territory but The Exit is, if anything, even better, both poignant and funny.”
- Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express
“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, author of Broken Dolls
