Can she pass herself off as the heir? Are there more secrets in this family? I couldn’t put this one down!

“Does Ruth Ware keep getting better and better? Yes, she does. A down-on-her-luck protagonist, a too-good-to-be-true inheritance, and a creepy old mansion combine for a deliciously suspenseful tale. The plucky heroine, Hal, believes she’s mistakenly been identified as an heir to a great estate, but she decides to play along in the hopes of scamming a couple thousand pounds out of the situation. Once she’s arrived at the reading of the will, she quickly realizes that she is in way over her head. This is a deceptive and suspense-riddled thrill ride!”
— Connie Brooks, Battenkill Books, Cambridge, NY

Description


INSTANT New York Times Bestseller

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 fourth novel, �her best yet� (Library Journal, starred review).

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.
