A Newbery Medal Winner

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!

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
