The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton - V Good

I think most people know that I love a crime novel. In particular vintage/golden age crime and my favourite is Agatha Christie. What is probably less well known is that I love science fiction too. This book ticked all the boxes. Agatha Christie meets Groundhog Day meets, hmmm, Quantum Leap?

A Country House setting. A house party. Every day Aiden Bishop wakes up inhabiting a different guest. Every day the Hosts' daughter Evelyn is murdered. Every day Aiden trys to work out who is the murderer and tries to save her. The thing is, he doesn't remember everything from the previous host, sometimes he doesn't even remember who he really is let alone why he's there.

Now that sounds confusing, and in some respects it is, but it's only the confusion he feels as he awakes and doesn't know who he is or where he is or why..... until it dawns on him what is going on, often as he witnesses the same scene as yesterday but from a different perspective. Slowly he (and the reader) builds up a fuller picture. You begin to feel you know what's going on and that's when the author throws in a twist or two. Some you see coming, most you don't. Certainly, I didn't see the final twist.

A great read, thoroughly recommended.
