Waterstones Says

From the award-winning author of our two former Thrillers of the Month, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle and The Devil and the Dark Water comes an ingenious dystopian thriller revolving around a murder in an island paradise that holds what is left of the world.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Even better than The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. Turton's cemented his reputation as the king of the mind-blowing mystery - Gareth Rubin, author of Sunday Times bestseller, THE TURNGLASS

An extraordinary novel. Midsommar meets Station Eleven meets The Mist meets a fresh post-apocalyptic murder mystery. Audacious and utterly mind-blowing. Stu Turton is one of the most inventive writers working today - Will Dean

Stuart Turton’s literary pyrotechnics are on full display in this magnificently sly novel. Part Holmesian deduction, part Shyamalan level twists - Turton somehow manages to reinvent both himself and the mystery genre with every book. An absolute blast - Benjamin Stevenson

Stuart Turton is the master of intricately plotted, brilliantly imaginative murder mysteries. His latest delivers all that wonderful head-scratching complexity in a darkly-drawn future world with a message about what makes us human at its heart. I loved it - C. J. Tudor

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, with a literal village full of incredible characters, this is an original take on the murder mystery and I loved it. Unique, thought-provoking but, above all, addictive - Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City and Miss Aldridge Regrets

The Last Murder at the End of the World is wildly inventive. Stuart Turton is a unique talent - M. W. Craven

Stu Turton has done it again. I finished The Last Murder at the End of the World last night and it might just be his barmiest, cleverest and creepiest mystery yet. Buckle up, because you’ve never read a whodunnit like this one - Tom Hindle

BELIEVE THE HYPE about this book. I absolutely raced through. Such a great sharp little jigsaw of a sci-fi mystery - Alice Bell

Stu Turton has done it again with The Last Murder At The End Of The World, the mad, alchemy-embracing bastard. A murder-mystery wrapped in a sci-fi allegory, it's utterly gripping, constantly confounding and will be another monster hit - Adam Simcox

A unique, intricate murder mystery absolutely full of heart, The Last Murder at the End of the World is a heartbreaking exploration of what it means to be human - Vikki Patis

PRAISE FOR THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE: 'Audaciously inventive, gripping and original' - Louise O'Neill

PRAISE FOR THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE: 'This book blew my mind. It is utterly original and unique. I couldn't get it out of my head for days afterwards' - Sophie Hannah

PRAISE FOR THE DEVIL AND THE DARK WATER: 'An absolute treat from the most original voice in crime fiction' - Ragnar Jonasson

“Stuart Turton never misses!”

Stuart Turton is unlike any other writer that I have come across in this genre before (in the best possible way). From the moment that I picked up Evelyn Hardcastle last year, I knew that I was going to be hooked, and... More
