About the Author

STUART TURTON is a freelance journalist who lives in West London with his wife. Stuart is not to be trusted--in the nicest possible way. The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is his first novel.

"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
"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. 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
"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
"Even better than The Seven 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. Turton's cemented his reputation as the king of the mind-blowing mystery." -- Gareth Rubin
"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
"Stu 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
"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
"The Last Murder at the End of the World is wildly inventive. Stuart Turton is a unique talent." -- M. W. Craven
"A mind-bending, genre-blending, boy-that-ending mystery unlike any I've ever though Agatha Christie and Stephen King had jointly rebooted Lost." -- A.J. Finn
"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
