How have I missed Ruth Ware for so long? The Turn of the Key is gothic, creepy, sinister, and absolutely unputdownable.
Rowan Caine comes across an ad for a live-in nannying post, with a huge salary. It’s a dream come true. Until she arrives. The ‘smart’ home seems to be watching her, the picture-perfect family is anything but, her employers are completely unavailable. And at the end of it all (or at the start of the book) there will be a child dead and she’ll be in prison awaiting trial for murder.
Wildly original and utterly absorbing, I was glued to my kindle until I’d finished that final page.
