The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
This book blew my mind Utterly original and unique.--Sophie Hannah, New York Times bestselling author
A murder mystery novel inspired by Agatha Christie with a dash of Groundhog Day and a hint of Quantum Leap and Downton Abbey.
Aiden Bishop knows the rules. Evelyn Hardcastle will die every day until he can identify her killer and break the cycle. But every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes up in the body of a different guest at Blackheath Manor. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others. With a locked-room mystery that Agatha Christie would envy, Stuart Turton unfurls a breakneck novel of intrigue and suspense.
The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a breathlessly addictive mystery that follows one man's race against time to find a killer, with an astonishing time-turning twist that means nothing and no one are quite what they seem.
From the author of The Devil and the Dark Water, Stuart Turton delivers inventive twists in a thriller of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page.

What a ride!
By Natalie , Sep 17, 2021
What a wild ride of a book! And what a debut! This definitely did not feel like a debut release. It was so detailed and intricate and had me guessing every step of the way. I will say it took me 3 or 4 days to make it through the first 150 pages because it’s so complicated and, just like our guide through this novel Aiden Bishop is, we are literally thrown into this story that has been going on before blindly. This is a little jarring at first and makes you stop several times to take stock of the information we have as readers at each moment. But once I got the hang of this, I sped through the rest of the book in about a day and a half. The ending answers shook me and I felt so satisfied by the ending.
I was just reading that the book has been purchased by Netflix for a mini-series and I am so excited for this. The complex narrative structure will make for an incredibly fast paced and high intensity television show.
