"Ware hauls the story into the 21st century by making the technology of today as menacing as the story’s isolated location...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. — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of IN A DARK, DARK WOOD, THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10, THE LYING GAME, and THE DEATH OF MRS. WESTAWAY comes Ruth Ware’s highly anticipated fifth novel.
When Rowan Caine stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss—a live-in nannying post, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when she arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten—by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family.
What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare—one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison awaiting trial for murder.
Full of spellbinding menace and told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, THE TURN OF THE KEY is an unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

The ball is in my court, but Tobias isn’t above stealing—my power, my resolve, my heart. When he wants a second chance to reignite our connection, my answer is simple—we can’t.
Not unless we defy the rules our dreams are built on … and risk everything.
A Pretty Woman tale turns toxic and deadly in this provocative thriller of sex, obsession, and murder from Robyn Harding, the “master of domestic suspense” (Kathleen Barber) and the USA TODAY bestselling author of THE PARTY and HER PRETTY FACE.
Natalie, a young art student in New York City, is struggling to pay her bills when a friend makes a suggestion: Why not go online and find a sugar daddy—a wealthy, older man who will pay her for dates and even give her a monthly allowance?
