The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

Will hold you captive until the brilliant ending’ SHARI LAPENA, author of The Couple Next Door

‘So clever and original . . . Pure suspense, from the first gripping page to the last shocking twist’ ERIN KELLY, author of He Said/She Said

I know you don’t know me but you have to help me. I didn’t kill anyone.

When Rowan stumbles across the advert, it seems like too good an opportunity to miss: a live-in nanny position, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when she 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’s not guilty – at least not of murder. Which means someone else is…

‘Creepy, engrossing, and oh-so-hard to put down’ JP DELANEY, author of The Girl Before

Full of spellbinding menace, The Turn of the Key is a gripping modern-day haunted house novel.

Pre-order this addictive new psychological thriller from Sunday Times bestselling author Ruth Ware today.

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’ A.J. 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

First thoughts


Immediately I was drawn into the letters that are being sent to Mr Wrexham, from someone signing themselves HMP Charnworth. Isn’t that a prison?  What have they done?
Page 56 does reveal what that could be, but it’s from a Kindle book, so it’s not even Page 56 but the position, so my snippet is very early on and I have been careful not to give anything away! If anything the blurb spoils the mystery beginning…
I’m not totally sure yet, but it seems to have a supernatural slant, which is making me really curious! 
Would you read further? What are you currently reading?

I can’t wait to visit your blogs to find out. Have a great weekend, may your books be with you!
