內容簡介

  《10號艙房的女人》作者驚悚新作!

  蘿恩原本找尋的是其他機會,但當她看到那則徵人廣告,卻無法不被吸引──它提供的條件太優渥,讓人難以拒絕:薪水豐厚的保母職缺,附帶供宿。她因此進入充滿各種便利設備的智能豪宅,與看似美好的一家人的生活中。

  蘿恩不知道的是,自己將踏入的是一場噩夢,最終以一名孩童的死亡,以及她的入獄作結。

  房子裡的監控鏡頭、在你最需要的時刻驟然熄滅的燈光、與初次見面有天壤之別的女孩們......。一切的一切,造就了這個結局。

  她得承認,自己也犯了錯。蘿恩有自己的秘密。她撒謊以取得這份工作,而她對待雇主孩子的行為,也並不總是合乎規矩。蘿恩不完美,然而她堅稱:她並沒有犯罪。而那代表,兇手另有其人......。(文/博客來編譯)

  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 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.

  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.
