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

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...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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, author of The Woman in the Window

'I read it compulsively, trying to undo the knotty puzzles so cleverly constructed by Ware. I really enjoyed the suspenseful atmosphere all the way from the beginning to the satisfying end.' - Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days 

'Ruth Ware gets better and better with each new novel' - Sarra Manning, Red Online

'Full of eerie atmosphere and intrigue... the story is deftly told and compelling' - The Sun
