Overview

"Agatha Christie meets Groundhog Day . . . quite unlike anything I've ever read, and altogether triumphant."—A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

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.

For fans of Claire North, and Kate Atkinson, The 7½ 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.

This inventive debut twists together a thriller of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page.

"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
"Turton's debut is a brainy, action-filled sendup of the classic mystery." — Kirkus Reviews
"I hereby declare Stuart Turton the Mad Hatter of Crime. The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is unique, energizing, and clever. So original, a brilliant read." — Ali Land, Sunday Times bestselling author Good Me Bad Me
"If Agatha Christie and Terry Pratchett had ever had LSD-fuelled sex, then The 7 1/2 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
"Atmospheric and unique, this is a mystery that adds "Who am I?" to the question of whodunit, with existentially suspenseful results." — Foreword
"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
"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." — Sarah Cation, Canadian Living
