• Ce soir à 23 heures, Evelyn Hardcastle va être assassinée. Qui, dans cette luxueuse demeure anglaise, a intérêt à la tuer ? Aiden Bishop a quelques heures pour trouver l'identité de l'assassin et empêcher le meurtre. Tant qu'il n'est pas parvenu à ses fins, il est condamné à revivre sans cesse la même journée. Celle de la mort d'Evelyn Hardcastle.
    Chef d'oeuvre de construction, de références littéraires et d'habileté technique, Aiden croisera lapin blanc et personnage masqué pour tenter de percer le mystère de ce meurtre aux mille tiroirs !

  • An impossible murder A remarkable detective duo A demon who may or may not exist The extraordinary new novel from Stuart Turton, author of the Sunday Times bestseller, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle , winner of the Costa Best First Novel Award.

    Praise for The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle :
    ''Turton has astonishing ambition and narrative skill to match'' Daily Telegraph ''Fiendishly clever'' The Times ''Prepare to have your brain fried and your mind blown'' Daily Express It''s 1634 and Samuel Pipps, the world''s greatest detective, is being transported from the Dutch East Indies to Amsterdam, where he is facing trial and execution for a crime he may, or may not, have committed. Travelling with him is his loyal bodyguard, Arent Hayes, who is determined to prove his friend innocent, while also on board are Sara Wessel, a noble woman with a secret, and her husband, the governor general of Batavia.

    But no sooner is their ship out to sea than devilry begins to blight the voyage. A strange symbol appears on the sail. A dead leper stalks the decks. Livestock are slaughtered in the night.

    And then the passengers hear a terrible voice whispering to them in the darkness, promising them three unholy miracles. First: an impossible pursuit. Second: an impossible theft. Third: an impossible murder.

    Could a demon be responsible for their misfortunes?

    With Pipps imprisoned, only Arent and Sara can solve a mystery that stretches back into their past and now threatens to sink the ship, killing everybody on board.>
