The Seven Deaths of Eve­lyn Hard­cas­tle

FIC­TION (HARPERCOLLINS) BY STU­ART TUR­TON, $25.

“I for­get ev­ery­thing be­tween foot­steps,” starts the nar­ra­tor, who has lost sight of his iden­tity and pur­pose all in an in­stant. He am­bles through the for­est to the an­ti­quated manor nearby, where, much to his re­lief, he’s rec­og­nized by other guests there for a mas­quer­ade. Tonight, some­one will die, and it’s up to this sto­ry­teller to solve the mur­der. If he doesn’t? He’ll awaken again to start the same day anew—but as a dif­fer­ent house­guest. The odds are stacked against him; he has eight tries, few re­li­able al­lies and many ob­sta­cles. My favourite mys­tery so far this year, it’s Agatha Christie, Ground­hog Day and Black Mir­ror mashed up into the kind of tale you just can’t put down. —SC
