Ruth Ware is one of those rare authors whose entire collection of works I’ve read. I started out in 2016 with The Woman in Cabin 10 (my favorite to date), and I’ve been hooked ever since. Ware’s newest release, The Turn of the Key, is a close second to TWiC10, and once I started reading I just couldn’t stop.
Tartt expertly (as usual) weaves the tale of a young girl named Harriet whose older brother was murdered when she was a baby and she becomes determined to solve the murder. But the story’s not a mystery, despite what the first chapter would lead you to believe, and the murder is, in the end, largely an irrelevant plot point that could have been used to craft much more compelling reading.
