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

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
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
