The Turn of the Key

Ruth Ware’s The Turn of the Key continues to receive media coverage following its release.

StarTribune (Minneapolis, MN) ran a review: “Ruth Ware has spun a complex narrative — part ghost story, part deception thriller and part revenge tale laced with a longing for love and acceptance. This novel follows her first four successful psychological dramas with the same immersive writing, clever characters and delicious plot surprises. Readers think the story is headed one way only to be jerked back on course with a startling reveal. And this goes on and on with whiplash succession. Stick with this one. Ware always saves the best for the end.”

The New York Times Book Review ran a piece for the “Inside the List” column titled “What Book Does Ruth Ware Call ‘Truly Terrifying’?”. The piece includes a short passage from The Turn of the Key and covers Ruth’s five favorite haunted houses. A version of this article will appear in print on August 25, 2019.

theSkimm also reviewed this title in their daily e-newsletter: “Ruth Ware – one of our favorite thriller writers – is bringing down the house. This one’s about a smart house that turns scary very quickly when a new nanny comes to work there…and a child gets murdered. Maybe don’t read it alone in a house but do read it for a fast-paced ride.”

Publishers Weekly Online mentioned the success of this book in an article titled “This Week’s Bestsellers: August 19, 2019”

Thought Catalog included this title in a round-up titled “The Book That You’ll Stay Up Reading All Night (Based On Your Zodiac Sign)”.
