The Turn of the Key is one of the buzziest thrillers in recent months. It’s a little slow at the start, but once Rowan was settled into her new nannying position, I immediately felt bad for her. Unreliable, disturbingly intrusive technology! An unruly, nasty child! Ghosts?!
This book creeped me out a bit – it’s my fault for reading the suspenseful parts while home alone. The twists didn’t shock me too much, but there are some DARK revelations.
Needless to say, Ruth Ware’s books get better and better with time. I’ll definitely pick up whatever she writes next.
For what it’s worth, this is a solid 3.5 for me.
