About the Author: Ruth Ware

Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Turn of the Key book, this is one of the most wanted Ruth Ware author readers around the world.


The Turn of the Key When she 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 Rowan Caine 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.Writing to her lawyer from prison, she struggles to explain the unravelling events that led to her incarceration It wasn t just the constant surveillance from the cameras installed around the house, or the malfunctioning technology that woke the household with booming music, or turned the lights off at the worst possible time It wasn t just the girls, who turned out to be a far cry from the immaculately behaved model children she met at her interview It wasn t even the way she was left alone for weeks at a time, with no adults around apart from the enigmatic handyman, Jack Grant.It was everything.She knows she s made mistakes She admits that she lied to obtain the post, and that her behavior toward the children wasn t always ideal She s not innocent, by any means But, she maintains, she s not guilty at least not of murder Which means someone else is.
