The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon

Oedipa Maas has just been notified that she has been chosen to be the executor of her ex-boyfriend’s will. She is shocked and lost about how to go about this task of sorting out the affairs of Pierce (her ex). What follows is a bit of a wild ride leaving you to believe that the whole thing as a intricate, well-planned hoax aimed at Oedipa. There were some very amusing moments in this warped and enthralling plot. I was completely enthralled.
