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 at the center of it. Full of spellbinding menace and told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, this is an unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

4.5 The Death of Mrs. Westaway
I really, really liked this book. Mainly because it ticked so many boxes of the things I truly enjoy in a novel. The atmosphere of this book was wonderfully gothic, dark and atmospheric and the Trepassen house, situated in the dark, rainy and dreary Cornwall, felt like a character of its own. The ...

I expected something that was a lot more suspenseful and had a different tone than the one that was in the book. I don't know how to describe but what...
