Description

"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 NATIONAL BESTSELLER!

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.

"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's Day and you'll get this unique murder mystery. The twisting, cleverly-written debut..." -- Harper's Bazaar, 10 New Books to Add to Your Reading List in 2018

"Turton's debut is a brainy, action-filled sendup of the classic mystery." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This novel is so ingenious and original that it's difficult to believe it's Turton's debut. The writing is completely immersive...there are certainly echoes of Agatha Christie here, but it's Christie ramped up several notches, thanks to the malevolent twist on the Groundhog Day theme. Readers may be scratching their heads in delicious befuddlement as they work their way through this novel, but one thing will be absolutely clear: Stuart Turton is an author to remember." -- Booklist

"This book blew my mind! Utterly original and unique." -- Sophie Hannah, international bestselling author

"If Agatha Christie and Terry Pratchett had ever had LSD-fueled sex, then The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle would be their acid trip book baby. Darkly comic, mind-blowingly twisty, and with a cast of fantastically odd characters, this is a locked room mystery like no other." -- Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author

"I hereby declare Stuart Turton the Mad Hatter of Crime. The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is unique, energizing, and clever. So original, a brilliant read." -- Ali Land, Sunday Times bestselling author Good Me Bad Me

"A kaleidoscopic mystery that brilliantly bends the limits of the genre and the mind of the reader. The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is urgent, inventive, creepy and, above all, a blast to read!" -- Matthew Sullivan, author of Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore

"Agatha Christie meets Downton Abbey with a splash of red wine and Twin Peaks. Dark and twisty, lush and riddled with gorgeous prose, part of me will always be trapped in Blackheath." -- Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author

"Gloriously inventive, playful and clever, this is a must for mystery fans. I wish I'd written it myself." -- Robin Stevens, author of the Wells and Wong mystery series

"Stuart Turton's debut novel is 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. Turton is going places." -- Anna Stephens, author of The Godblind Trilogy

"I'm green with envy; I wish I'd written this book." -- Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You

"Absolute envy-making bloody murderous brilliance." -- Natasha Pulley, author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

"My favorite mystery so far this year, it's Agatha Christie, Groundhog Day, and Black Mirror mashed up into the kind of tale you just can't put down." -- Canadian Living

"Bonkers but brilliant. It's an Agatha Christie manor-house mystery- with a Black Mirror twist. Kept me engrossed and guessing throughout, and I still didn't figure it out." -- Kirsty Logan, author of The Gracekeepers

"Dazzling. A revolving door of suspects (and narrators); a sumptuous country-house setting; a pure-silk Möbius strip of a story. This bracingly original, fiendishly clever murder mystery--Agatha Christie meets Groundhog Day--is quite unlike anything I've ever read, and altogether triumphant. I wish I'd written it." -- A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

"Atmospheric and unique, this is a mystery that adds "Who am I?" to the question of whodunit, with existentially suspenseful results." -- Foreword Reviews

"Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! It's a work of sheer genius. An amazing, unique book that blew my mind." -- Sarah J. Harris, author of The Color of Bee Larkham's Murder
