The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle


"Pop your favorite Agatha Christie whodunnit into a blender with a scoop of Downton Abbey, a dash of Quantum Leap, and a liberal sprinkling of Groundhog Day and you'll get this unique murder mystery." --Harper's Bazaar


The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a breathlessly addictive mystery that follows one man's race to find a killer, with an astonishing time-turning twist that means nothing and no one are quite what they seem.

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.

International bestselling author Stuart Turton delivers inventive twists in a thriller of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page.

The last quarter of the book felt like it haphazardly came together, however I would still recommend for an intriguing murder mystery story

I understand the author wanting us to be confused because the main character was confused, but this was excessive.

This book requires a spreadsheet and flowcharts to keep straight! It starts out like a gothic novel type situation, only as time goes on, there's mystery afoot and murder and mayhem abound. The main character, Aiden Bishop, is stuck in a time loop, destined to repeat a single day as a different "player" until he solves the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle. Each of his hosts bring with them their own skills and positive attributes along with a whole more
