“The Westing Game” is a wonderful, clever and engaging book. It’s a murder mystery, a puzzle, and a treasure hunt, all in one, centered around the unique cast of characters that inhabit Sunset Towers apartments. The reader essentially becomes a participant in the mystery as we follow each character. There are bombs. There is death. There is a snowstorm. And there is a lot of shin-kicking.

Reviews

The Westing Game (TV Movie 1997) - IMDb

The Westing Game is one of my all-time favorites. I’ve always loved mysteries, and this is a great starter mystery. There is a very eclectic cast of characters, featuring Turtle Wexler: hero to young girls everywhere. Do not touch her braid, or she WILL kick you in the shins. Each time I’ve read the book over the years, I find myself relating more to different characters, and their actions and reactions throughout the course of the book.
