Stuart Turton

Born in Widnes and educated at the University of Liverpool, Turton spent a year working as a teacher in Shanghai before moving back to London to become a technology journalist. His next career move was to Dubai where he wrote travel journalism for three years before returning to the UK once more and commencing work on his debut novel, the post-modern murder mystery The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (retitled The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle in the United States in a bid to avoid confusion with Taylor Jenkins Reid’s The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo). The novel’s time-bending narrative and originality ensured that it became a bestseller and Waterstones Thriller of the Month – a feat repeated by his second novel The Devil and the Dark Water. Set onboard ship in the seventeenth century, the twist-laden narrative featured mercurial sleuths, sinister apparitions and bloody murder and was a triumph of page-turning storytelling. His third novel, The Last Murder at the End of the World, combined apocalyptic thriller and whodunit to similarly breathtaking effect.
