The Twist That Has Stuck With Me

I love a good mystery. I love seeing the twists and turns unfold, and I try my hardest not to spoil it for myself. This book had twists that I did not see coming, and this book has stuck with me for a long time. I gave my copy to a friend, and I wish I could have it back because I want - no, need - to reread this immediately.

From the inventive plot of having different host bodies each day, each with their own skillset, to the ultimate reveal of why the character is in Blackheath, to the real killer of Evelyn Hardcastle, there is so much to love about this book. It will have you on the edge of your seat, wanting to devour it in as little time as possible. I particularly enjoyed seeing how the narrator had difficulty controlling the urges of his hosts and how he dealt with each host's limitations. The desire of wishing to return to the intelligence of Ravencourt is something I think about a lot, and it makes me think about my own limitations as a human. Truly this book discusses what it means to be humane in a gripping mystery.

Perhaps I too want my memory wiped so I can read this again and again.
