Note de l'éditeur

Homage reaching new heights…

An homage to Daphne du Maurier’s “Rebecca” that starts on a dark and stormy night and continues to employ many classic tropes with contemporary twists. Ruth Ware (“In a Dark, Dark Wood,” “The Woman in Cabin 10”) reaches new heights in this novel.

Description

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 unpausable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

    I loved The Woman in Cabin 10 but I think this book may be even better. The protagonist was very likable, but it was a guessing game figuring out the rest of the characters. Makes you want to skip ahead to see what happens, but at the same time you don’t want it to end!The narrator was also very enjoyable to listen to.
  • (5/5)
    I have loved every Ruth Ware book and this one is no exception. Such a thrilling read and I could not have guessed the ending.
  • (5/5)
    Simply fantastic! Having been disappointed by Cabin 10, I’m glad I gave this one a try. A real pageturner.
  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed Ruth Ware’s other books so started listening to this one as soon as I saw it and it is by far one of my favorites! I thought I had it figured out but completely wrong in a good way and I really liked and related with the protagonist Hal. The narrator Imogen Church is also exceptional I love her voice!

    Fabulous reader - she does a great job bringing the book to life!!
  • (3/5)
    I have loved the author’s other books with their twists and turns and strong smart female leads. While many of the elements were there, this was not a particularly smart lead character and the ending was pretty obvious early on. This will not stop me from listening to the next Ruth Ware book though. And the person who reads all her books is fabulous. I seek out other books she has read.

    Good Story - well written. Great Narrator! Enjoyed the book.
  • (5/5)
    wonderful. not as brilliant as Agatha Christi but makes her look shallow in comparison.
  • (5/5)
    My first Ruth Ware and won't be my last! What a cool spin on the "inheritance mystery" plot!
  • (5/5)

    Another great story by Ruth Ware. So many suspects to try to figure out.
  • (5/5)
    Amazing book! Highly recommend to anyone who loves a great mystery/thriller book.
  • (5/5)
    Very good read. Moves well and keeps you guessing. This is my second book by Ruth Ware and they were both very good mysteries roughly in the vein of Agatha. Read this one!
  • (5/5)
    I have a very short attention span, but this novel sucked me right in. I really enjoyed it. Found my mind wandering once or twice while listening, but otherwise it was very engaging. I don't try to guess endings, so IDK if it was predictable or not, but I sure enjoyed it.
  • (5/5)
    Very good book. A story story. I enjoyed it, next.
  • (4/5)
    A little slow at bits but it's fantastic over all.
  • (5/5)
    It's so hard for me to find a book I cant put down lately. I finished this in a day and half because I could not stop. The voice actor was so good and the twist and turns had me literally on the edge of my drivers seat.
  • (5/5)
    Great fun! I couldn’t stop listening. Ms Church is a great reader!!
  • (3/5)
    I didn't hate it, but it also didn't blow my mind. It was like a Scooby-Doo mystery where the reader figures out the plot before they're halfway through the book. Fantastic beginner's novel except its from an experienced author ?.
  • (5/5)
    Ruth Ware did it again. And Imogen Church is incredible. Highly recommend.
  • (4/5)
    The plot was really nice and full of surprises, but I gave 4 stars because it was really long, full of long descriptions, remained me of the Russian authors that I had to read in school and they described a garden in two pages.
  • (2/5)
    I really wanted to like this book but the author writing every little detail of every little thing in every scene made it drag on. I could forward 30 seconds and it still wouldn’t be at the point. Also, seriously, it’s the 21st century, the author actually wrote the heroine getting ill from being in the rain? Is this a 19th century romance? Come on. It’s so lame and antiquated.
  • (5/5)
    You really were put into the main character's world and the plot was not complicated, but had many dark twists that made it interesting.
  • (4/5)
    It’s very slow at the beginning and has a good ending.
  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed listening to this book. The readers voice was so easy to listen to.
    I would have preferred that two important characters were not named so similarly, Maggie and Maude it drove me crazy trying to keep them straight in the story. That is probably why the author planned it that way. All the characters were well developed. That made the story so interesting
