The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
The book begins with a wide variety of people being selected to live in an apartment building, and then ultimately chosen to solve a mysterious death with the reward of a huge inheritance. Mr. Westing has put them in pairs and given them clues.
Of course each team is made up of two individuals who greatly benefit from their new friendship. Most of the characters learn something and change for the better by playing the game.
The writing style is cook, the mystery is clever and I recommend this book for a quick fun read.
