Groundhog Day meets Clue.

Aiden Bishop is trapped in a time loop. Every day he wakes up in Blackheath on the day of Evelyn Hardcastle’s death, in the body of a different guest in the house. In order to escape the loop, he must solve the murder. In order to do that, he must learn the truth about the other murder that took place 19 years ago. AND he’s not the only one stuck in the loop. There are two others: one is trying to help him … one is trying to kill him.

It’s a labyrinth. It’s a spiderweb. It’s a 3D chess game. It’s like trying to solve two different jigsaw puzzles at once when all the pieces are mixed together in the same box. It was just as perplexing reading it the second time as it was the first time, but that may, in large part, be because the first time I listened to the audiobook and I don’t absorb information very well aurally. So I missed a lot of details, or just forgot them. But the one thing I did not forget was that ending, and I have not stopped thinking about it ever since!

So yeah, you should read this book. It will twist you into a pretzel and then blow your mind. 🤯 ( )

SPOILER ALERT
Someone characterized this book as Agatha Christie meets Groundhog Day. That’s a pretty good description, although, toward the end, it’s more like “meets Matrix.” It turns out that Aiden Bishop and two others are trapped in a setting that has been constructed to hold and, if possible, rehabilitate hardened criminals. Purgatory, in other words. In the foreground is a contest to solve the murder of the title: who killed Evelyn Hardcastle? Whoever cracks the case is allowed to leave. But in the event, earning that right involves facing one’s nature and reprogramming it. By doing so, Aiden not only gains his own freedom but that of one of the others.
This book is masterfully constructed, with a confusing cast of characters (eight of whom “host” Aiden for a day) and a dizzying array of plot turns. At one point, I thought I’d caught the author violating the rules of the world he had created, but that turned out to be the preparation for one of the most stunning twists. Early on, Daniel Coleridge, a professional gambler, acts kindly toward the first of Aiden’s hosts and then repeatedly turns up to interact with Aiden’s other hosts, eventually telling him he’s to be Aiden’s final host. It turns out to be a lie.
“Daniel,” whoever the person in that role, seems as intent on eliminating his rivals—Aiden and Anna—as on solving the murder. He’s not even above committing the odd murder himself in his ruthless pursuit of escape. He fails in the end; fittingly, his murder of Stanwin is what jolts Aiden into the realization that Daniel’s helpfulness was an act. This is crucial for putting Aiden on the right track.
So “Daniel” will go through at least one more loop. I don’t feel that all his kindness was pretense, however. I don’t know how many loops it will take, but I think Daniel is learning.
At the outset of the book, the setting—Blackheath—seems an appropriately Agatha-like stage. But as the book goes on, it seems to take on a malevolent personality of its own, due in no small part to Turnow’s masterful description. The revelation that it is artifice, constructed as a prison, makes sense.
When Aiden first learns this, he rejects the notion that being placed behind bars can change anyone. His error lies in thinking in terms of conventional prisons, which indeed have a low rehabilitation rate. The world of Blackheath, however, is not a conventional prison. Repeated failure here seems to soften the inmates. So how long does it take? Apparently, Aiden has been there thirty years, and unlike the other two, he chose to go there (not, however, for purely altruistic reasons).
The constructors of this world remain hidden. Their agent inside the world is the mysterious and elusive plague doctor. Ultimately, it is none other than the author who has created Blackheath and its denizens and presented them to us. A magnificent achievement. ( )

Das Buch war definitiv eine Überraschung, allerdings finde ich es schwierig, viel darüber zu schreiben, ohne potentielle Leser zu spoilern.

Der Protagonist durchlebt immer wieder den selben Tag, ein Fest auf dem Anwesen der Familie Hardcastle. Allerdings erwacht er jeden Morgen im Körper eines anderen Gastes, erinnert sich aber an alles, was an den vorherigen Tagen passiert ist. Seine Aufgabe ist es, den Mord, der am Abend des Tages geschieht, aufzuklären.

Der Schreibstil des Buches hat mir sehr gut gefallen, die Figuren sind interessant angelegt und der Fall wird am Ende zufriedenstellend aufgeklärt - einschließlich der Frage, was es mit dieser Murmeltiertag-Situation auf sich hat. Allerdings muss man sich schon sehr konzentriert lesen, um keine Hinweise zu verpassen und die Verbindungen der Personen untereinander zu verstehen.

Ich werde definitiv mehr Bücher von dem Autor lesen. ( )

The confusion begins with the title. First, it implies that Evelyn Hardcastle is who this story is about. But it isn’t, really. Second, the title also implies that Evelyn Hardcastle will die 7 1/2 times. But no.

That’s OK. Titles are often mysteries. But even now that I’ve finished the book, I’m still not sure about those 7 1/2 deaths. I’m confused because I think there were more.

A man who we eventually learn is Aiden Bishop finds himself at a large estate that is in severe disrepair. He doesn’t know why he is there; he has no memories. He doesn’t even know who he is.

I don’t want to describe the story in much detail because different parts confused me throughout. I may describe something in one way, but you may read it and understand it in another way. It’s that confusing.

I know this, though. Bishop is tasked with solving the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle. But who has given him this task? By the end of the book there will be a sort of answer. But even that person has superiors, and we are never told who they are.

Bishop inhabits the bodies of several guests at the estate. In this way, he sees Evelyn Hardcastle and the goings on of many other guests at the estate from many perspectives so he can solve the mystery of her murder. He even tries to prevent it.

This story contains so many characters it is difficult to keep track of them all. And it is especially difficult to remember who did what. If you are one of those fortunate people who can sit and read a book all day, I think you may have a chance at avoiding confusion. But if you have to put the book down to go to work or to go to sleep, you are bound to be confused. Thank goodness someone was thoughtful enough to include a list of characters near the front of the book.

I don’t know if this author reads reader reviews, but he should learn about a repeated editorial error that a good editor should have caught and corrected. Turton and his editor should learn the difference between "intended on" and “intended to.” "Intended on” is a mistake that is repeated throughout this book. No one intends on doing anything; they either intend to do it, or they plan on doing it. ( )

Ended up being much weirder than I thought. I really liked the time travel mechanics and the mystery itself though, so overall an enjoyable read! Wonder if Turton will write more in the same universe. ( )

To my parents, who gave me everything and asked for nothing. My sister, first and fiercest of my readers from the bumblebees onwards. And my wife, whose love, encouragement, and reminders to look up from my keyboard once in a while, made this book so much more than I thought it could be.

The future isn’t a warning my friend, it’s a promise, and it won’t be broken by us. That’s the nature of the trap we’re caught in.
Evidently, Rashton made quite an impression last night, because my passage through the house is punctuated by hearty handshakes and backslaps. Greetings lie scattered in my wake like tossed rocks, their goodwill bringing me out in bruises.
Too little information and you're blind, too much and you're blinded.
This time the past will hold her hand and squeeze. Memory will murder her.
She’s the only real thing in a world of echoes.
