20 Apr

Turn of the Key
Ruth Ware is known by many as the Queen of Thriller Mysteries. The writing style carried through all of her books will draw even new readers into her work and a world of murder and suspense, that makes her books impossible to put down. This continues to be the case with her newest work, The Turn of the Key.

We are introduced to our main character, Rowan Cain, as she writes to a would be Solicitor Advocate, from jail in Scotland, proclaiming her innocence and pleading with him to take her case. Her case has received international coverage and she is desperate to find a lawyer that will actually listen to her. We discover why she is in prison and that things look rather grim.

Through the course of the novel, we learn more about the events preceding the crime and are led through to a very satisfying ending that will leave even the best sleuth guessing. If you are seeking a new thriller or simply wish to check out some of Ruth Ware’s writing, The Turn of the Key is something that should be on your radar.  You can borrow it as an ebook or digital audiobook from eBCCLS and eLibraryNJ.
