The Death of Mrs. Westaway Ruth Ware Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars


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.

User reviews about this book

  • The Death of Mrs. Westaway

    By Zdriller
    Interesting plot, with good suspense but, unfortunately, an over-the-top, far-fetched ending...something all too common in mysteries and crime novels. Too bad.
  • Great Read

    By Pickles 7
    I think this is my favorite Ruth Ware novel. I read the book in a few days. The storyline was unique and the development of characters really pulls you in. I usually can predict the ending of a book. This book keeps you guessing until last few pages. Great read. Enjoy
  • The worst

    By Eventjubilee
    Rarely leave reviews but had to on this one. This book was so god forsaking slow, by Chapter 17 I figured out the twist. Rather than reading the remaining 38 chapters I flipped to the back and lo & behold, the ending was as predicted. Very little character development. The main character was torturously boring and mousey. Another reviewer on here said the same thing. Overall, this book was the worst read I’ve had in a long time. Avoid.

    This was my first book by Ruth Ware. I’ve downloaded the rest. I thought it was excellent. I found myself thinking about it while doing other things. Caused me a few late nights. I love her prose. I would recommend it to all my friends.

    Book dragged on with one uneventful chapter after another. Her first novel was fine but each one thereafter has been a little worse than the previous one. End of my buying.
  • Another great read from Ruth Ware

    By jmckay88
    If you've read her other books (which I highly recommend), you'll enjoy this one as well. It's a page turner as you try to put the pieces together until the end.
  • Repetitive

    By Johnjay15
    Describing a person and their emotions a couple times ok, but every other chapter, over and over is boring. Five stars, no way.
  • So so

    By carocross
    Had heard glowing review on NPR. Have never read this author before and sounded good. But it wasn't. Repetitive writing, boring characters, expected story. No twists, turns or surprises. Disappointed. Will delete samples of other books by this author.
  • Boring and confusing
