"A supersharp mystery...confoundingly clever, and very funny." —Booklist, starred review
A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen 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, on things for sure: Sam Westing may be dead…but that won’t stop him from playing one last game!

It sucks because it doesn't tell you what page you are on.
This book is a must-read for all mystery lovers! It combines the perfect mixture of suspense, humor, and trickery. I enjoyed picking out all the clues and trying to race the characters in solving the mystery. Altogether entertaining and satisfactory!
