From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark WoodThe Woman in Cabin 10, and The Lying Game comes Ruth Ware’s highly anticipated fourth novel.

The Death of Mrs Weatehrly cover


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.


I have read most of Ruth's books, but this one I think is her pinnacle! This was a book I did not want to put down, and I found myself reading 3/5ths of it on the first reading very EARLY into the morning, and finishing on the second read. Red herrings about to thwart the reader, in classical Christie prose, as the reader worries about Hal and her immediate future. Will she be able to get an inheritance?  Will she survive the weekend? Why was the family SO dysfunctional and what is the big secret they are keeping? This is at once an old-fashioned mystery, wrapped up with a modern coat, and it is perfect for relaxing with over a long weekend, so don't miss this one!
