Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

A brilliantly original high concept murder mystery from a fantastic new talent: Gosford Park meets Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express'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...

Review Quote*"This book blew my mind. It is utterly original and unique. I couldn't get it out of my head for days afterwards."
Review Quote*"Dazzling . Bracingly original, fiendishly clever . Quite unlike anything I've ever read, and altogether triumphant. I wish I'd written it."
Review Quote*"Complex, fascinating and bewildering. . . . An astonishingly polished debut."
Review Quote*"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."
Review Quote*"Prepare to have your brain fried and your mind blown . . . an exhilarating, unsettling and invigoratingly original read."
Review Quote*"I hereby declare Stuart Turton the Mad Hatter of crime. Seven Deaths is unique, energising and clever. So original, a brilliant read . I tore through it."
Review Quote*"Darkly comic, mind-blowingly twisty, and with a cast of fantastically odd characters, this is a locked room mystery like no other."
Review Quote*"An original and high concept murder mystery, this is welcome rescue in a sea of psychological thrillers."
Review Quote*"Agatha Christie meets Groundhog Day in the tightly plotted The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle."
