16 heirs. One murder. One will. One mystery. Sam Westing has been murdered. But who murdered him? The police don't know, and they can't find out. In his will, Sam says that one of the heirs did it. There are two people who know the answer to the mystery. An heir, and those who read the book. (And ME!!)
Why I liked It
I loved the characters, the mystery. ( What I didn't like was having to stay up late with homework from reading it in class.) It does not have gory details. But it does have interesting characters. An invalid, a girl who likes to kick people in the shins. Even a Chinese man who owns a restaurant. Bravo, Ellen Raskin.
