Description of this Book

Ruth Ware, the Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller returns with another page-turning psychological thriller. When she stumbles across the advert, she's looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss: a live-in nanny position, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when Rowan arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten by the luxurious 'smart' home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family. What she doesn't know is that she's stepping into a nightmare - one that will end with a child dead and her in a cell awaiting trial for murder. She knows she's made mistakes. But, she maintains, she's not guilty - at least not of murder. Which means someone else is. Full of spellbinding menace, The Turn of the Key is a gripping modern-day haunted house thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time. Available for pre-order now. Praise for Ruth Ware: 'Powerfully atmospheric, unguessably twisty...I devoured it' Louise Candlish, bestselling author of Our House 'Dark and dramatic...part murder mystery, part family drama, altogether riveting' AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window 'One of the best thriller writers around' Independent 'Agatha Christie meets The Girl on the Train' The Sun 'Dark, unsettling, brilliant' HEAT 'Deliciously dark and spooky' Sunday Mirror

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review So clever and original . . . Pure suspense, from the first gripping page to the last shocking twist -- Erin Kelly A ghost story for the twenty-first century, a propulsive gothic thriller with characters you'll really care about. With this book, Ruth Ware proves she's the true heir to Wilkie Collins. Creepy, engrossing, and oh-so-hard to put down -- JP Delaney
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
