Synopsis

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.

About the Author

English born author, Ruth Ware, grew up in Lewes, Sussex and then studied at Manchester University in North London. She had several jobs before her writing career became her profession. She worked as a waitress, bookseller, and when she lived in Paris, she taught English as a foreign language. After returning to North London, she became a publisher's publicity agent. What better way to become familiar with getting her own work published?

Her debut book In a Dark, Dark Wood immediately made the New York Times bestseller list, and was also bought for a potential film for Reese Witherspoon to produce. Her initial offering was followed by The Woman in Cabin 10, and The Lying Game. They are both best sellers and have also been sold for potential movie production.

Ruth Ware has a fourth book scheduled to be released in mid-2018. It is titled The Death of Mrs. Westaway. As with the previous three, the new novel will be another in the mystery and crime genre. She currently lives in Northern London with her two children and husband, Ian.
