News  ·  “Will Stay With Them Long After They Turn the Last Page”

Publishers Weekly has published a starred review for Ruth Ware‘s The Turn of the Key.

“Ware’s excellent psychological thriller, as the title suggests, references Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw… But Ware hauls the story into the 21st century by making the technology of today as menacing as the story’s isolated location, a Scottish estate.”

“Ware does a good job of creating tension… But above all, Ware skillfully lays the bread crumbs to the novel’s satisfying conclusion… [that] leaves readers with one final, haunting question, one that will stay with them long after they turn the last page.”
