Editor's Note

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.


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.
