The Death of Mrs. Westaway

Magpies. One staple of summer reading is a suspense novel, and Ruth Ware’s latest book titled, The Death of Mrs. Westaway, will satisfy those readers who like an engaging thriller. A protagonist named Hal living hand to mouth receives a letter about an inheritance. Ware leads Hal to and fro as she considers how to play her hand, which is a skill she has developed as a Tarot card reader. When the magpies arrive on the scene, Agatha Christie fans will feel on familiar ground, albeit without a Miss Marple to straighten everything and everyone out. Instead we have hapless Hal gradually stumbling into jeopardy and reward. I was thoroughly entertained by this novel.
