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, one things' for sure: Sam Westing may be dead... but that won't stop him from playing one last game!

Wow, this book was really good. It had almost all of the points I like in a book, mystery, puzzles, and adventures. Its awesome when I can find a book can hit all of my favorite things without being a 500+ page book. I really enjoyed this book even though it is meant more for kids, I think everyone would enjoy the story and plot behind everything. I would defiantly recommend it to children and adults.
