“Ruth Ware is a magician. Her novels — suspenseful, sophisticated, relentlessly compelling — blow the dust off half a dozen crime genres, from Golden Age whodunits to psychological suspense. And The Death of Mrs Westaway, her latest, is also her best: a dark and dramatic thriller, part murder mystery, part family drama, altogether riveting. More, please, and soon.” AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

“‘I read it compulsively, trying to undo the knotty puzzles so cleverly constructed by Ware. I really enjoyed the suspenseful atmosphere all the way from the beginning to the satisfying end.” Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, and The Lying Game comes Ruth Ware’s highly anticipated fourth novel.

On a day that begins like any other, Hal receives a mysterious letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. She realizes very quickly that the letter was sent to the wrong person—but also that the cold-reading skills she’s honed as a tarot card reader might help her claim the money.

Soon, Hal finds herself at the funeral of the deceased…where it dawns on her that there is something very, very wrong about this strange situation and the inheritance is at the center of it.

Told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, this is an unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.
