The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

‘Somebody’s going to be murdered at the ball tonight.  It won’t appear to be a murder and so the murderer won’t be caught.  Rectify that injustice and I’ll show you the way out.’

It is meant to be a celebration but it ends in tragedy.  As fireworks explode overhead, Evelyn Hardcastle, the young and beautiful daughter of the house, is killed.

But Evelyn will not die just once.  Until Aiden – one of the guests summoned to Blackheath for the party – can solve her murder, the day will repeat itself, over and over again.  Every time ending with the fateful pistol shot.

The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer.  But each time the day begins again, Aiden wakes in the body of a different guest.  And someone is determined to prevent him ever escaping Blackheath…

A brilliantly original high concept murder mystery from a fantastic new talent: Gosford Park meets Inception, by way of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express.

Peer & Press Reviews

Darkly comic, mind-blowingly twisty, and with a cast of fantastically odd characters, this is a locked room mystery like no other.

Sarah Pinborough

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a mind-bending mash-up of Agatha Christie, Quantum Leap and Groundhog Day.  If it isn’t made into a film in the very near future, I’ll eat my deerstalker.

Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

Dazzling in its complexity, astonishing in its fiendishness and shocking in its sheer audacity.  Every page, every character, and every deliciously dark secret is an absolute treat.

Anna Stephens, author of the Godblind trilogy
