Description

'The Death of Mrs Westaway is Ruth Ware's best: a dark and dramatic thriller, part murder mystery, part family drama, altogether riveting' AJ FINN, bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW

When Harriet Westaway receives an unexpected letter telling her she's inherited a substantial bequest from her Cornish grandmother, it seems like the answer to her prayers. She owes money to a loan shark and the threats are getting increasingly aggressive: she needs to get her hands on some cash fast.

There's just one problem - Hal's real grandparents died more than twenty years ago. The letter has been sent to the wrong person. But Hal knows that the cold-reading techniques she's honed as a seaside fortune teller could help her con her way to getting the money. If anyone has the skills to turn up at a stranger's funeral and claim a bequest they're not entitled to, it's her.

Hal makes a choice that will change her life for ever. But once she embarks on her deception, there is no going back. She must keep going or risk losing everything, even her life...

The brand new psychological thriller from the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10.

I absolutely adored it' -" * Lisa Jewell, bestselling author of THEN SHE WAS GONE * "The Death of Mrs Westaway is Ruth Ware's best: a dark and dramatic thriller, part murder mystery, part family drama, altogether riveting." * AJ Finn, Sunday Times bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW * "If you're an Agatha Christie fan then you'll love this eerie new offering from mega-author Ruth Ware... Dark, unsettling and brilliant." * HEAT * "A dark tale by one of the best thriller writers around." * Independent *
