Ruth Ware‘s The Death of Mrs Westaway has appeared on many publications’ end-of-year roundups for the best titles of the year.
Metro‘s Claire Allfree said “Blending an Agatha Christie-style whodunit with lashings of Du Maurier-style gothic, this is an unusually meaty psychological chiller.”
The Herald‘s Alastair Mabbott said “Ware makes her novel feel both contemporary and pleasantly retro.”
Michele Campbell, author of She Was the Quiet One, picked it for Woman’s Weekly: “Ruth Ware is the modern master of psychological suspense.”
The Sunday Express also featured the novel in its “Gift of Words” Christmas book idea column.
