Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for all mystery lovers. Only two mystery/thriller books have ever had the ability to leave me dumbfounded; Night Film by Marisha Pessl was one and The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton is the other one. What a ride!!! Stuart Turton presents us with a masterpiece of mystery à la Agatha Christie. The characters (with many ssssss) are well defined and ingeniously calculated. They each bring essential clues to solve this mystery. Aiden Bishop has 8 days and 8 hosts to crack Evelyn Hardcastle’s murder and be free. He will encounter allies and antagonists along the way but constantly will have to look over his shoulder to circumvent being murdered himself. When you think you have resolved the murder… think again! So many twists and turns and not to mention details dropped here and there which will lead you to think you know, but you don’t. The spectacular ending will leave you panting and come to realize that it all makes sense. Well done!!! A must read for all mystery lovers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Mystery Please consider me in complete awe of Stuart Turton's ability to spin a story. My brain is still spinning from how unbelievably well plotted this novel is. When people asked me what I was reading, I could only describe this as Groundhog Day meets the board game Clue. And it's not far from the truth. This whole book is a game, with each new host for Aiden Bishop being nothing more than a pawn moved across the board. Everything is so beautifully orchestrated and timed that no matter how hard he tries to change things as host number 4, he merely enables everything to happen as it would for host 6. I am *dying* to see Turton's mess of notes on this because for such a convoluted story I found there to be absolutely no plot holes, no loose threads to unravel. It is a murder mystery that I couldn't figure out, and the ending was so damn satisfying. The characters were wonderful! Each one so unique and with their own dark past that Bishop has to work around or learn. Likewise, the development of Bishop's character in Blackheath is fantastic! My only regret with this book is it took me too long to read. It took me a while before I finally just sat down and just read, and boy was I glad I did that. This story is definitely one best enjoyed when read in long sittings. It's gripping, but you need to pay attention. And it will not let you down.
