Gosford Park meets Groundhog Day by the use of Agatha Christie and Black Mirror – the most inventive story you’ll be able to read this year
Tonight, Evelyn Hardcastle will probably be killed … Again
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 is not going to die just once. Until Aiden – one of the most guests summoned to Blackheath for the party – can solve her murder, the day will repeat itself, again and again. Each and every time ending with the fateful pistol shot.
The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer. But each and every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes in the body of a different guest. And anyone is decided to prevent him ever escaping Blackheath…
