One fateful day, sixteen people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing's will. To their surprise, the will turns out to be a contest, challenging the heirs to find out who among them is Westing's murderer. Forging ahead, through blizzards, burglaries, and bombings, the game is on. Only two people hold all the clues. One of them is a Westing heir. The other is you!

Praise for "The Westing Game"* "A supersharp mystery...confoundingly clever, and very funny." --"Booklist," starred review "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"

From the Author:

GOOD BOOK
THE WESTING GAME IS GREAT. ALL OF THE CHARACTERS ARE SWIRLED TOGETHER INTO A WHIRLWIND OF A PLOT THAT TWISTS AND TURNS WITH EACH ADVANCING CHAPTER. READ IT IN SIXTH GRADE AND I'D READ IT AGAIN.
