* "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

This story is 40 years old and has won tons of awards, it was worth the read! Though it is written for young kids, there are lots of characters to keep up with and the mystery will keep you guessing. I would recommend it to any age. Sam Westing may be dead...and in his will he left a game for 16 strangers, maybe one murderer, and a vast fortune. The game is full of puzzles to solve but with burglaries and bombs there is enough to make you second guess everything! .
