Publisher Description:
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

Winner of the Newbery Medal
Winner of the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award
An ALA Notable Book

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
