Some family secrets are worth killing for
Harriet “Hal” Westaway receives a letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. It seems the answer to her prayers: The loan shark she borrowed from is increasingly aggressive, and her job as a seaside fortune teller can’t clear her debts. There is one problem: Hester Westaway is not Hal’s grandmother.
Hal realizes that the letter was sent to the wrong person—but with the cold-reading skills she’s honed as a tarot card reader, if anyone can turn up at a strange woman’s funeral and claim a bequest, she can.
Hal boards a train for Cornwall…where it dawns on her that there is something very wrong at Trepassen House.
This fourth novel from the author of The Woman in Cabin 10 and The Lying Game is filled with spellbinding menace.
“Ware's novels continue to evoke comparison to Agatha Christie…. Expertly paced, expertly crafted.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Ruth Ware is a magician. Her novels—suspenseful, sophisticated, relentlessly compelling—blow the dust off half a dozen crime genres…. More, please, and soon.”—A. J. Finn
“Evocative prose, artfully shaded characters, and a creepy, claustrophobic atmosphere keep the pages of this explosive family drama turning.”—Publishers Weekly
