    Ruth Ware with Kim McKimmie

    Ruth Ware is a British psychological crime thriller author. She grew up in Lewes, in Sussex and studied at Manchester University, before settling in North London. She has worked as a waitress, a bookseller, a teacher of English as a foreign language and a press officer.

    Her début thriller, In a Dark, Dark Wood, was an instant New York Times bestseller in the US, and Sunday Times bestseller in the UK. It was optioned for film by New Line Cinema with Reese Witherspoon attached to produce.

    The follow up, The Woman in Cabin 10 was a number one New York Times bestseller as was her third novel, The Lying Game. Since then her books have appeared on bestseller lists around the world, and all three have been optioned for either film or TV.

    Published this Summer, to rave reviews is her fourth novel, The Death of Mrs Westaway. She visited Portland, Oregon on her latest book tour, where Kim McKimmie attended her reading and book signing.

    Ruth Ware is the darling of the publishing world (her books are published by Simon & Schuster) and she is lauded as “the new Agatha Christie.”

    She has admitted to being unconsciously influenced by Christie and other mystery novelists of that time. Ware's protagonists are usually ordinary women who find themselves in dangerous situations involving a crime. Her first two novels feature a murder mystery with a group of people trapped, or otherwise restricted from immediately escaping the dangerous environment. Christie was famously known for utilizing this plot device, in novels such as Murder on the Orient Express. Ware and Christie both choose settings and situations that foster the sense of dread that propels their characters to paranoia and often they react violently as a result. These environments create a sense of isolation in which the events unfold. Ware's settings play a key role in drawing in the reader and are just as essential and integral to her story as the characters.

    “A classic never goes out of style. Consider the confident simplicity of the dry martini, the Edison lightbulb and Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. Now, add to that list Ruth Ware’s new novel, The Death of Mrs. Westaway.
