The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle Stuart Turton
The novel follows a man who wakes in a forest with only one memory; a name, Anna. He witnesses a murder in the forest and is directed to the luxurious yet decaying stately home of Blackheath where he soon learns from a mysterious visitor disguised as a plague doctor that the only way he can escape a day that keeps repeating over and over again, is to solve an ingenious murder.
The issue, every time he wakes, he’s in the body of a different suspect - allowing him to interact with his former and future selves, not all of whom want to help him. But our protagonist soon discovers that he is not alone in trying to catch the murderer and escape Blackheath, and nothing and no one are quite what they seem.
But who is this Anna and why does he feel compelled to find her? What brought him to Blackheath in the first place? And who on earth killed Evelyn Hardcastle?
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle will appeal to anyone who enjoys intelligent genre fiction and lovers of a good old-fashioned mystery.
