"The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle" must be the most clever book that I read so far in 2018. The story is so creative. Aiden receives the task of solving the mystery of Evelyn Hardcastle murder. For that he will have to relive the same day 8 times, in 8 different hosts - each host was a different guest to the party where Evelyn Hardcastle will be murdered by the end of the day. In each host, Aiden gets to think and perceive things as his host would do, so while some may have more strength, other may bring other skills to help in the investigation. Mixing up mystery, murder investigation, and time travel, this book is very creatively constructed, and you get you wondering page after page who killed Evelyn Hardcastle after all.
