Barney Northrup

Character Analysis

We know from the start that Barney Northrup is not a real person, but we don't find out who's impersonating him until nearly the end of the book. What we do know about him is he's a fast-talking real estate dude with a funky mustache and great lying ability.

SPOILER: He's really the second identity of Sam Westing.
