Something for the Weekend? – Book Review – The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

Alicia Duggan of The Bookshop reviews The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

Groundhog Day meets Agatha Christie in this quirky debut novel by Stuart Turton. Set in the 1920s and told in the style of a locked room mystery, guests are summoned to Blackheath Manor house for a party. By the end of the night Evelyn Hardcastle will be murdered. However, unless Aiden, one of the guests, can solve the murder, the day will repeat itself.

Aiden has eight days to solve the murder and each day is a repetition on the last except for one thing. Each day when Aiden wakes up he inhabits the body of a different party guest. If he fails to solve the murder, the whole week resets and Aiden must begin again without any memory of what went before.

This is an intriguing and fast paced whodunnit with plenty of twists and turns. It is fun, dark, clever and engaging.
