The Death of Mrs. Westaway

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Ruth Ware

Narrated By: Imogen Church

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: May 2018

Duration: 14 hours 15 minutes


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.

    So good, it might be my favorite. No I can’t choose like that, Ruth Ware is amazing, I luv all her books. I found all her stories easy to follow, with Imogene narrating I’m biting my nails all the way through. Ruth does leave some untied knots for our own imagination to contemplate I guess that is why I can’t wait for her next novel to come out and I can try to untie that mystery chapter by chapter.

    A great who done it. Kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning. My second Ruth Ware novel.. Loved the narration. Imogene Church is incredible. Some narrators have difficulty transitioning to various people. She did a spot on job. I highly recommend it for your next bookclub.

    This book had a very unique flavor. It kept me interested and surprised and I did not predict the outcomes. This is more of a psychological thriller so if you like in your face horror/gore and non-stop action this is not for you. if you like something that builds with steady intrigue and twists this is a perfect read. I would kind of compare the style to Liane Moriarty. the narration is superb!!!

    In contrary to the other reviewers I could tell the ending of this book and I found it to be a tad boring. Not very thrilling and the word trepidation is said many times.

  • Carrie D.

    This book was a thriller until the end. I normally can guess the end. But it was a surprise and gripping until the end . A few parts were slow. But still a great vacation read

    This book is Great! It takes a few chapters to really get going but stick with it. You are not going to believe what happens.

  • Lauren M.

    This book was excellent, it kept me on the edge of my seat. I could not wait to get back to it and missed it when it ended. The narrator did a fantastic job as well.
