Turton Collects a Costa

Here’s a news item I missed, but which B.V. Lawson has thankfully incorporated into her latest “Mystery Melange” post:
Stuart Turton has won the [2018] Costa First Novel Award for
his debut,
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. The crime novel has been sold in 20 territories to date and has been optioned for TV. The Costa Book Awards honor some of the most outstanding books of the year written by authors based in the UK and Ireland.
British writer Turton’s novel was retitled The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle in the States. It’s due out in paperback come May.
