Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Death of Mrs Westaway, by Ruth Ware.

When Harriet Westaway receives an unexpected letter telling her she’s inherited a substantial bequest from her Cornish grandmother, it seems like the answer to her prayers. She owes money to a loan shark, and the threats are getting increasingly aggressive: she needs to get her hands on some cash fast. 

There's just one problem - Hal's real grandparents died more than 20 years ago. The letter has been sent to the wrong person. But Hal knows that the cold-reading techniques she’s honed as a seaside fortune-teller could help her con her way to getting the money. If anyone has the skills to turn up at a stranger's funeral and claim a bequest they’re not entitled to, it’s her. 

Hal makes a choice that will change her life forever. But once she embarks on her deception, there is no going back. She must keep going or risk losing everything, even her life.... 

The brand-new psychological thriller from the Sunday Times and New York Times best-selling author of The Woman in Cabin 10.

Commentaires

"The Death of Mrs Westaway is Ruth Ware's best: a dark and dramatic thriller, part murder mystery, part family drama, altogether riveting." (AJ Finn, best-selling author of The Woman in the Window)

Page turner

Although it takes a bit to get into the story, I liked this book a lot and devoured it! If you like the other books of Ruth Ware, you are not going to be disappointed, this is again a thrilling page-turner. I found the scenes and descriptions well-written but sometimes giving too much into epic clichés, so to say a bit exaggerated, but don't we read to deeply dive in a roman, do we?! It mustn't be reality like. Keep please concentrated on every tiny details from the first beginning, most of the time there are clues and keys to the turns, but you will only know afterwards! The construction of the story is impressive with many turns even, reminding some plot of Daphney du Maurier may be. Great reading performance of Imogen Church, as always, I am french and always enjoy listening to her, so clearly understandable and sooooo thrilling! Weldone, Thank you!

Great story

Kept me involved from beginning to end. Difficult to put down. I really liked the addition of the mystical aspect of the tarot cards and the realistic way with which the protagonist approaches them, sometimes buying into it others being cynical about them. The cards added a nice flavor/metaphor to the story.

Very slow

Nothing happened for about 12 hours. I feel it had potential but the plot wasn’t strong enough and did no justice to the lenght of this story. This writer csn do better

Meh.

Good premise, but SO many loose ends and flat characters. Could guess every twist way ahead of it happening. Disappointed with this one.

British Murder Mystery set in Cornwall

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this murder mystery set mainly in Cornwall and partly in Brighton. It has all the elements of a traditional British whodunit; a spooky country house, an eerie servant, a wicked villain, an innocent victim, a family with unspeakable secrets, unsolved murders, and plenty of red herrings and surprises. The unique atmosphere of the almost haunted house and the English countryside and seaside, as well as the complex family dynamics and singular characters make it an engrossing read. It is narrated in the third person by Hal ( Harriet Westaway) who is an endearing young girl, with a complex and lonely life, who gradually discovers her past, uncovers family secrets and solves the cruel crimes.

Spannung perfekt gehalten

Zusammen mit der Stimme der Leserin wird hier eine spannende und unheimliche Atmosphäre geschaffen, die einen nicht mehr los lässt. Ich habe nicht mehr geschlafen, bis ich das Hörbuch durchgehört hatte.

slow burn

Quite a slow plot development and a major deviation from Ruth Ware's typical style. I'd label this book more of a family secrets drama than a suspense/thriller read.

Unbedingt hören

Mein erstes Buch von Ruth Ware und sicher nicht das letzte. Eine wunderbar spannende, interessante, menschliche Geschichte, bei der mir wirklich alles gefallen hat. Die Charaktere sind vielschichtig und in ihrem Denken und Verhalten nachvollziehbar und stimmig, der Plot ist voller Twists und Geheimnisse, ohne im Geringsten abstrus zu wirken. Großartig vorgelesen von Imogen Church.

Fesselnd, spannend, tolles Ende

Ruth Ware hat einen unverwechselbaren Stil! Und Imogen Church bringt auch bei diesem Hörbuch düstere Atmosphäre auf den Punkt! Ich war gefesselt von der Geschichte rund um eine Erbschaft, die eine schlüssige, aber nicht schnell vorhersehbare Auflösung hat.
