Staff recommended: Yes, "The Turn of the Key" is good. But. I liked "The Death of Mrs. Westaway" even better. A creepy old house, an attic room with locks on the outside of the door! A really creepy old housekeeper, who is judging everyone. Family secrets -- everyone keeping secrets from everyone else! So good! ~Elaine.
