The Westing Game by Ellen Ruskin is one of my favorites. I fell in love with it in elementary school 30+ years ago, and just reread it a few months ago when my husband first discovered it. It still holds up for adults, whether for first-timers or long time fans.

Government Inspector by Gogol! One of my favorite Gogol stories. Twelfth Night by Shakespeare is another classic.

The Talented Mr. Ripley! Love Patricia Highsmith.

“The Likeness” by Tana French. French’s tight, simple style is perfect for suspense: you never when something is going to come around the corner. And, when it does, watch out! Great sense of place – Ireland – too. Without spoiling, we see a woman hiding behind another persona for professional reasons which brings about great insights into both her own, real life and the lives of the person she impersonates and her friends .
