A high-concept murder mystery set during a weekend party at a crumbling mansion, the narrator of The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle must repeat the same day over and over again until he can identify the killer of the beautiful young heiress, Evelyn Hardcastle, and break the cycle.
Author Sophie Hannah has already said that the book “blew my mind”.
“It is utterly original and unique,” she said. “I couldn't get it out of my head for days afterwards.”
The book, described as “Gosford Park meets Groundhog Day, by way of Agatha Christie”, will be published as a “lead title” on Hennessey’s new imprint in early 2018.
