THE TURN OF THE KEY

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Imogen Church

Mystery & Suspense • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Imogen Church narrates Ruth Ware's unsettling update of Henry James's TURN OF THE SCREW. Nanny Rowan Caine arrives for her first day at what seems like a dream job to find that things are not as perfect as they first seemed. The house's "smart" system malfunctions in the middle of the night, and the children hate her for no apparent reason. Church ably handles the children's voices and the range of accents, including the Scottish housekeeper's. Her increasingly hysterical performance captures Rowan's slow unraveling, upping the creepy factor as the novel's heavily foreshadowed tragedy draws near. This outstanding listen should delight Ware's many fans. E.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
