Ep. #285: Stuart Turton, Author of The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

On today's episode, Jill and Adam interview Stuart Turton, author of the phenomenally mysterious The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. We discuss his passion for Agatha Christie, how to make a murder mystery that lives up to her legacy, editing this masterpiece, why it's named differently in the U.S. and the U.K. and so much more. This novel is a masterpiece of intrigue and Stuart is a delight.
