When Hal receives a letter in the mail claiming that she is to inherit a large fortune, she quickly realizes that the letter and the inheritance was not meant for her.

“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.”
—A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
