"This book blew my mind! Utterly original and unique."—Sophie Hannah, New York Times bestselling author

A murder mystery novel inspired by Agatha Christie with a dash of Groundhog Day and a hint of Quantum Leap and Downton Abbey.

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.

The 7_ 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.

From the author of The Devil and the Dark Water, Stuart Turton delivers inventive twists in a thriller of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page.

  • Absolutely amazing!!!

    By OneBigTooth
    Literally one of the best mysteries ever. I recommend this book to everyone, and the only bad thing about it is the fact that we don’t have a sequel. Its engaging with twists on every page, and not only is there a fascinating mystery, but also amazing character development and struggles. Awesome book!
  • Not good

    By ttgonzo
    Illogical start and drudges on from there.
  • Sweet and nerve wrecking

    By dm-jp
    Mystery, fantasy or sci-fi, you decide? Quite a treat.
  • Overpriced

    By Jlynnknits
    I’m enjoying the book so far but this is only $6 on Kindle. I try to keep all my ebooks on the same platform, but not for an $11 difference in price.
  • It felt very long

    By teeeeeeeeeeeekle
    I felt like it would never end— and not in a good way. Very original though! Took a while to get into it but it was a good read as I stuck with it til the end. I liked the end.
  • my favorite book

    By catthelesbo
    bought this book around christmas for a gift exchange, and ended up with it myself. a great read that kept me captivated and questioning until the very end. i would recommend this to anyone who loves a good “whodunit”. every time i thought i had the plot all figured out it took a new twist.
  • This book....

    By SuP3rMaN0814
    I can’t recommend this book enough. I can’t go into details with out spoiling it so just click buy. The only down side is when it’s over you want to read more and there really isn’t anything quite like this book!!
  • Different, but repetitive actions did not all grip me with interest.

    By Heelermom
    The trick of the book, the rules of the ‘game’ were interesting in the beginning. After the first few it became repetitive and unnecessarily complex. I’d still recommend because the fleshing out of characters and motives propelled me to the end.
  • An homage to Agatha Christie + so much more!

    By horibly concerned
    If you enjoy Agatha Christie mystery novels, especially the ones set in old, rambling country estates populated by a potentially murderous cast a la “Upstair, Downstairs” archetypes types bearing grudges and job descriptions like The Butler, The Footman or The Valet, you may like this book. There is even a map to the House and estate to further tickle your fancy! If you are a Reader who is open to new ideas about crime and punishment and possible redemption, you might really, really this book If you are a Reader who is willing to stretch their mind to ponder the concept of applied tech relative to criminal justice with a splash of time travel and multiple dimensions, you might LOVE this book Extremely well written with flashes of brilliant writing, this book deserves a 4.5 but alas, no such rating. The book Could be a 5 star book but it was marred by a rather muddy plot towards the end of the book. To carry off a book which includes a plot within a plot, clarity is a must for the Reader Kudos the author.....a very, very Good book. Please write more!
