The Turn of the Key

Rowan Caine comes upon an ad for a live-in nanny with a salary almost too good to be true. She takes the position and is thrilled, but she is faced with something she never fathomed. Her time at Heatherbrae House is told through letters Rowan writes from her prison cell to an attorney she wants to hire, trying to convince him that she’s innocent and has nothing to do with the murder of the child she once took care of. Ruth Ware delivers another thriller with twists and turns no one will see coming.
