This hilarious sequel to Exit the Body follows Crane Hammond, suspense mystery writer, and her country hating secretary, Kate, as they rent the same house as before in Vermont, only to find it is the exchange point where a missing microdot containing plans of military installations is to be picked up by a spy at midnight. In Exit Who, One of our agents arrives to capture the spy but, when he suffers amnesia, it is left to Crane and Kate to find the spy and the microdot. The focal point of the set is a two way closet, which also opens into a library and the entrances, exits, and surprises in it take farce to a new height.
Who is the spy? The very Vermont sheriff, Vernon Cookley, the society writer for the paper, the famous recluse who has come out of hiding to obtain rights to Crane’s new book, the forgetful and distracting older neighbor, the rugged country cook, or the CIA agent himself? The finding of the microdot, as well as the pinpointing of the spy is laced with Carmichael’s witty dialogue and confused situations. The two female leads are supported by a cast of characters to make this a sure fire evening of hilarity.
