News  ·  What Ware Does Beautifully is Infuse “The Turn of the Key” with a Creepy Gothic Sensibility

The Turn of the Key

The New York Times has reviewed Ruth Ware‘s The Turn of the Key.

“Let’s just say that if you’ve got an Echo, you’re going to unplug it as soon as you finish the book…  What Ware does beautifully is infuse ‘The Turn of the Key’ with a creepy Gothic sensibility. For all of the novel’s contemporary touches — particularly the house’s malevolent smart technology — she has delivered an old-fashioned horror story, peopled by children with ‘eyes full of malice,’ a dour housekeeper straight out of ‘Rebecca’ and an inscrutable handyman.” Read the full review here.

Congratulations to Ruth. Follow her on Twitter @RuthWareWriter.
