This is a Mobius strip of a novel, a murder mystery with some science fiction elements – Quantum Leap meets Agatha Christie, with elements of the movie Memento. Aiden Bishop inhabits the bodies of various guests and servants at a manor estate in the early 1900s. He has eight chances to find out who will kill Evelyn Hardcastle at the end of the night. Each time one of his “hosts” falls asleep he inhabits the next host and the day begins again. The catch is that he doesn’t really remember what happens from one host to the next, so he has to leave himself breadcrumbs along the way. And there are other people working to solve the crime, or possibly subvert Aiden’s efforts. Very well crafted and riveting – I couldn’t put it down!
