Welcome to Blackheath and to the dark and dangerous game called “The Murder of Evelyn Hardcastle”.
A group of people is invited to Blackheath for the nineteenth anniversary of a murder of Thomas Hardcastle. Creepy, right? And sadly, the visitors do not know the chain of murders this visit will bring.
In order to escape this dreadful place which is full of dark secrets and win the game, Aiden Bishop has eight days to solve the upcoming murder. The rules are simple, during eight days, Aiden wakes up in a body of a different visitor, all he has to do is to use his “hosts” and their knowledge to find the real murderer… and most importantly – avoid of being killed himself.
I had such a wonderful time reading this book. It seemed a bit confusing at the beginning, but once the story starts to roll, all chess figures fall into places. Thank you, NetGalley, Sourcebooks Landmark publisher and Stuart Turton for a free copy of this wonderful book!
