The Seven Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle - Book Review

Book Review - The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle - Incredible Opinions



The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle  ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Author - Stuart Turton
Publisher - Harper Collins


First and foremost, this book has no connection with Taylor Jenkins Reid's 'The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo'. Secondly, this book is also a masterpiece in its own genre. I have never stayed up until 3am to finish a book just to find out who is the murderer until I started reading this.

This book is about the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle, daughter of Peter and Helena Hardcastle who are throwing a ball on the occasion of the death anniversary of their son at Blackheath who died 19 years ago. Evelyn is murdered during the party in front of everyone but who kills her?

Aiden Bishop enters Blackheath with a total loss of memory and into the body of one of the guests invited to the party. He has to find the murderer in 8 days. The same day is repeated again and again with Aiden being in someone else's body to solve the puzzle. He cannot leave Blackheath and this vicious cycle of waking up in another body will continue until he solves the puzzle of Evelyn's murder. He has to beat all the other competitors who are also trying to solve the mystery if he wants his way out of Blackheath.

Most of the thrillers disappoint you with their climax but this one doesn't and Stuart did a good job in justifying it.

Complicated yet very intriguing. I kept reading it until it all started making sense and I must say, it is a smartly written masterpiece by Stuart Turton.
