THEIR DREAM HOUSE WILL BECOME HER WORST NIGHTMARE

'Ruth Ware just gets better and better’ Lisa Jewell, bestselling author of The Family Upstairs


‘The queen of creepy crime’
Metro

When Rowan comes across the advert, it seems too good to be true: a live-in nanny position, with an extremely generous salary.

What she doesn't know is that she's stepping into a nightmare – one that will end with her in a cell awaiting trial for murder.

She knows she's made mistakes.
But she's not guilty – at least not of murder.
Which means someone else is...

THE TURN OF THE KEY
IS:

‘Eerie and Tense’ Prima


‘Dark and dramatic’ AJ Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window


‘Deliciously dark and spooky’ Sunday Mirror


‘Powerfully atmospheric, unguessably twisty’ Louise Candlish, bestselling author of Our House


Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"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." - J P Delaney

"Ruth Ware just gets better and better. The Turn of the Key is her most compelling and addictive to date; I read this in a two sitting frenzy, barely able to turn the pages fast enough." - Lisa Jewell

"So clever and original . . . Pure suspense, from the first gripping page to the last shocking twist." - Erin Kelly

"Will hold you captive until the brilliant ending." - Shari Lapeña
