"A supersharp mystery...confoundingly clever, and very funny." (Booklist, starred review)
A bizarre chain of events begins when 16 unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing's will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger - and a possible murderer - to inherit his vast fortune, one thing's for sure: Sam Westing may be dead...but that won't stop him from playing one last game!
"Great fun for those who enjoy illusion, word play, or sleight of hand." (
The New York Times Book Review)
"A fascinating medley of word games, disguises, multiple aliases, and subterfuges - a demanding but rewarding book." ( The Horn Book)
