Ruth Ware’s The Turn of The Key

 

The recent autumn issue of Mystery Scene Magazine brings my review of Ruth Ware’s newest novel The Turn of the KeyIt’s a clear homage to Gothic fiction, most notably The Turn of the Screw by Henry James (but so much more delightful).

Dare I say: it might be my favourite Ruth Ware novel so far. It has the double pleasure of being both a Gothic send up and an epistolary novel, something I am especially a sucker for.

In her most recent page turner, Ware is becoming more adept as a writer and I am keen to see what her next brings.

The Turn of the Key is a suspenseful blend of modern thrills with a layer of classic horror.
