8 posts | 4 read | 10 to read
Solve the murder to save what's left of the world. Outside the island there is nothing: the world destroyed by a fog that swept the planet, killing anyone it touched. On the island: it is idyllic. 122 villagers and 3 scientists, living in peaceful harmony. The villagers are content to fish, farm and feast, to obey their nightly curfew, to do what they're told by the scientists. Until, to the horror of the islanders, one of their beloved scientists is found brutally stabbed to death. And they learn the murder has triggered a lowering of the security system around the island, the only thing that was keeping the fog at bay. If the murder isn't solved within 92 hours, the fog will smother the island and everyone on it. But the security system has also wiped everyone's memories of exactly what happened the night before, which means that someone on the island is a murderer and they don't even know it... The outstanding new high concept murder mystery from the Sunday Times bestselling and Costa Book Award winning author of The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. An ingenious puzzle, an extraordinary backdrop, an audacious solution. Available to pre order NOW.

Loved it. Locked-island, post-apocalyptic murder mystery madness.

Readable as heck. Probably full of plot holes I don't give a damn about. Twisty, turny, ambitious, and totally bananas.

I continue to be a huge Stuart Turton fan. I eat up everything he puts out and love that his books are original and different from each other.

He simply can't write fast enough for me 😊💕

julesG Bananas and plot holes fits. 🤣🤣🤣 1w
Branwen I can't wait to get my hands on this! 🥰 3h

A small island. About 125 inhabitants. One is found dead. It could have been any inhabitant. Because everyone's memory of the night had been erased including the AI's who was the only one capable of doing so.
The murder collapsed the barrier keeping the island safe. If the villagers can't find the murderer and get the AI to raise the barrier again they'll all die. It's a race against time, they have less than two days.

TrishB I‘m thinking I‘m the only person who doesn‘t like this author 🤷‍♀️ also I have AI every second in work, feels like the only thing we‘re talking about. So I‘m reading medieval based books from now on 😁 3w

Wanted to read the tagged #ARC. You know, eroding #MountARC and all that... Got sidetracked and spent nearly an hour reading reviews and review comments on Goodreads. 🙈🤦🏻‍♀️🙈🤦🏻‍♀️🙈🤦🏻‍♀️

Anyone else regularly fall down a reviews rabbit hole?

RaeLovesToRead I'm going to go see Stuart Turton next month. He is awesome! 1mo
julesG @RaeLovesToRead I'll let you know if I've got any questions for him. I'd love to live somewhere where I can go to author events without having to use my passport 😐 1mo
Hooked_on_books I do sometimes do that. Sometimes I‘m glad I did and sometimes I regret it, as some people have spoilers they don‘t mark as such. 1mo
Ruthiella Totally. Sometimes I spend more time reading ABOUT reading than I do actually reading books. 😆 1mo

This is a dystopian murder mystery which takes place on an island & home to the last humans on Earth. Between the AI character, multi POV format, and short chapters - this was an engaging mystery to unravel.

This book comes out May 2024! My buddy read group gave it 3.5-4 ⭐️

💭 Do you like books featuring AI characters? If so lmk some book recommendations for more bc I‘m into it!
