Product description


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

"Ware tells a cracking tale and, as in her breakout novel In a Dark, Dark Wood, the house itself plays a hugely menacing part in proceedings." (Guardian)

"An ingenious suspense narrative...Ware pulls out a stunner on the penultimate page that radically alters how we interpret everything that’s come before. I daresay even Henry James would be impressed." (Washington Post)

"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)

"Diabolically clever. Twisty and creepy, THE TURN OF THE KEY is Ruth Ware's best book yet. Read with a blanket nearby, because you will get shivers up your spine" (Riley Sager)

"The Turn of the Key is a brilliantly crafted, chilling suspense thriller. Clues are seeded through the tale like poisonous plants that you only recognise when it's far too late. Trust no one in this novel except Ruth Ware – she has come up with a totally compelling tale once again"

"A masterclass in tension!"

"The Turn of the Key is a delicious read ― a sympathetic but fallible narrator is accused of a terrible crime. The clever unfolding of her story will hold you captive till the brilliant ending. Vintage Ruth Ware"

"Ware is an accomplished storyteller...compelling... assured neo-Gothic chiller" (Irish Times)

"[Ruth Ware is] an adroit practitioner in the art of psychological suspense . . . Thoughtful and provocative" (i)
