The Death of Mrs. Westaway

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Ruth Ware

Narrated By: Imogen Church

Date: May 2018

Duration: 14 hours 15 minutes


A “perfectly executed suspense tale very much in the mode of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca” (The Washington Post) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, The Lying Game, and The Turn of the Key.

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 a “captivating and eerie page-turner” (The Wall Street Journal) from the Agatha Christie of our time.

    Creative plot, however the writing was so verbose that it took away from the story. Also, the motive for the killings was weak, and not realistic. Overall, very entertaining; but as written, this would make for a better movie.

    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.

    This read is by far one of my favorite reads. It kept me guessing from start till finish. I enjoyed the characters and the fact that the narrator did a splendid job with their voices. This read was indeed suspenseful and thrilling for me. Recommended read!!!
