How do you stop a murder that’s already happened?

At a gala party thrown by her parents, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed--again. She's been murdered hundreds of times, and each day, Aiden Bishop is too late to save her. Doomed to repeat the same day over and over, Aiden's only escape is to solve Evelyn Hardcastle's murder and conquer the shadows of an enemy he struggles to even comprehend--but nothing and no one are quite what they seem.

Aiden Bishop is destined to relive the same day over and over again, in eight different bodies, until he can solve the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle. If he does not succeed at the end of that time, the loop restarts and he loses all of his memories of the previous loop, forcing him to start over from scratch with even the basics – who am I? What am I doing here? He realizes that he is both the hunted and the hunter, an innocent and a deceiver, in this highbrow whodunnit. 

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a mind-bending mash-up of Agatha Christie, Quantum Leap and Groundhog Day. If it isn't made into a film in the very near future, I'll eat my deerstalker” –  Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

The book is outstandingly enjoyable and addictive and, by the end, you may realise that you've been so preoccupied with Turton pulling your brain in all directions that you haven't noticed he's got your heart in an iron grip as well” –  Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express
“Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! It's a work of sheer genius. An amazing, unique book that blew my mind” –  Sarah J Harris

“An Agatha Christie yarn tumbling Through The Looking Glass … This utterly original thriller is brilliantly plotted and a real page-turner, with mind-bending twists and turns” –  Herald
