“Yet instead of being angry, he pities me. That's the worst part. Anger's solid, it has weight. You can beat your fists against it. Pity's a fog to become lost in.”

Aiden Bishop has a task.  He has to figure out who killed Evelyn Hardcastle. She will die everyday until he solves the mystery of  who killed her. Each day Aiden wakes up in the body of a different guest at Blackheath Manor. Some of these hosts will be helpful in figuring out the big mystery but will he figure it out before its to late?

What a wild ride!  This book was unique and complex. I loved it!  It reminded of a murder mystery party.  It kept me guessing the entire time with it's semi time travel feel and detailed plot.  I could see this playing on the big screen someday. It's definitely one where you want to read (or watch if it ever becomes a movie) to see what you missed.  If you really like mysteries then this is definitely for you!
