Gosford Park meets Groundhog Day by way of Agatha Christie and Black Mirror – the most inventive story you'll read this year
Tonight, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed ... Again
It is meant to be a celebration but it ends in tragedy. As fireworks explode overhead, Evelyn Hardcastle, the young and beautiful daughter of the house, is killed.
But Evelyn will not die just once. Until Aiden – one of the guests summoned to Blackheath for the party – can solve her murder, the day will repeat itself, over and over again. Every time ending with the fateful pistol shot.
The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer. But each time the day begins again, Aiden wakes in the body of a different guest. And someone is determined to prevent him ever escaping Blackheath...

Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
Wow, what a book, I purchased back in October from Waterstones, after one of their employees recommended it to me, but that was after I had already seen the book in the shop window, and I was drawn into the shop!
It normally takes me months to finish a book, but I have just finished today 15 November, after reading every night before lights out. The book is intriguing, captures the detail on each individual, and has a fantastic, imaginative storyline, thank you Stuart.
Full of twists and turns. Excellent read from beginning to end.
A sparkling blend of fizzing metaphors, personification of sound and sight, atmospherics, character mixes and intrigue.
Thanks so much for giving me a heady read.
I loved this stylish book that I read online, and I will be keeping it to take another sip when the initial effect wears off.
