(?   -    ) UK author whose first novel, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (2018), is a detective tale set in a late 1920s country house in rural England, a region and era involuntarily accessed by its protagonist through Time Travel. Once in situ, he finds himself in a kind of Godgame, under the control of a mysterious figure who locks him in a state of Amnesia into a Time Loop, through the action of which he begins the same day eight times, with the same goal: to solve a murder mystery. This overall eight-day cycle may have itself been repeated thousands of times. The complexities of the tale are – unusually in stories involving manipulations of time – resolved through the solution of the central mystery. [JC]
