Join us for an evening in the company of international bestselling author Ruth Ware as she talks about her brand new psychological thriller, The Death of Mrs Westaway.
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 twenty 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 for ever. But once she embarks on her deception, there is no going back. She must keep going or risk losing everything, even her life…
Ruth is the author of In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10 and The Lying Game. Told in her signature suspenseful style, The Death of Mrs Westaway is her highly anticpated fourth novel.
