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...

I hereby declare Stuart Turton the Mad Hatter of crime. Seven Deaths is unique, energising and clever. So original, a brilliant read ... I tore through it * Ali Land, author of Sunday Times bestseller Good Me, Bad Me * Darkly comic, mind-blowingly twisty, and with a cast of fantastically odd characters, this is a locked room mystery like no other * Sarah Pinborough * This book blew my mind. It is utterly original and unique. I couldn't get it out of my head for days afterwards * Sophie Hannah, bestselling author * Dazzling in its complexity, astonishing in its fiendishness and shocking in its sheer audacity. Every page, every character, and every deliciously dark secret is an absolute treat * Anna Stephens, author of the Godblind trilogy * Agatha Christie on time-bending substances ... Mind blowing * Eva Dolan * Gloriously inventive, playful and clever, this is a must for mystery fans. I wish I'd written it myself * Robin Stevens, author of the Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries * Audaciously inventive, gripping and original * Louise O'Neill, author of Only Ever Yours and Asking For It * I'm green with envy; I wish I'd written this book * Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You * Absolute envy-making bloody murderous brilliance * Natasha Pulley, author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street * Had me mesmerised ... One of the best books I've read in a long time. Every page either sparkles or fizzes with beauty or danger. This is a real mind-melter of a novel from a writer who has complete mastery over his work. If more people could write like this, who'd need cinema? * Imran Mahmood *
