`Somebody's going to be murdered at the ball tonight. It won't appear to be a murder and so the murderer won't be caught. Rectify that injustice and I'll show you the way out.'



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...

Customer Reviews

This book delivers a brain-bending, mind-blowing, high-stakes story that blows all expectations of the murder mystery genre out of the water. The reader is intentionally left just as ignorant of the dark history surrounding Blackheath and its inhabitants as protagonist Aiden is, which builds an unshakeable layer of suspense that gets punctuated with shocking revelations as he attempts to uncover the truth about who killed Evelyn Hardcastle. As he moves from host to host, reliving a horror-filled day with just a little bit more knowledge each time, it brings to mind movies like "Groundhog Day," though Sandra Bullock's "Premonition" would more accurately capture the feel of the book. This is definitely one to read at a steady pace, there are a lot of moving pieces to keep track of, though the author is good about dropping small recaps and reminders in naturally, especially when the day "resets" for Aiden. If you like the looped time aspect of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban or the "meeting in the wrong order" timelines of Doctor Who/Riversong, this book will definitely have something for you, and mystery fans will love the unpredictability of the big reveals. Desperation eeks from every page as the clock counts down to Evelyn Hardcastle's death - again and again and again.
