This is such a hard call to make, because who knows if what you loved about
_The Westing Game_ is repeated in any of her other books...(I loved WG too
and I re-read it occasionally).
One thing I like about her books, but might be off-putting, is the '70s
flavor. _The Tattooed Potato and Other Clues_ is the one I like best. _The
Mysterious Disappearance of Leon (I mean Noel)_ wasn't as good when I was a
kid, but I think it's because I had the wrong expectations of it. _Figgs
and Phantoms_ is just odd. Those are just the ones I own and I don't have
more recent memories of any others.
