內容簡介 The new thriller, set in the hothouse world of a ballet school, from the multi-award-winning writer Megan Abbott 'A book you will not be able to forget' MARK BILLINGHAM 'Dark and mesmerising' HARRIET TYCE 'This is Megan Abbott working at the absolute height of her talent' ATTICA LOCKE After the sudden death of their parents, the Durant sisters, Dara and Marie, inherit a ballet school and take over running it with Dara's husband Charlie. The sisters' connection is intense, forged by a glamorous but troubled family history. But after they hire Derek, a charismatic, possibly shady contractor to renovate the studio, Marie throws herself into an intense affair with him that threatens their tight bonds and brings forward family secrets until an act of violence overturns everything. 'There's no one who captures the atmosphere of a tight-knit hothouse world, in all its feverish beauty and brutality, quite like Megan Abbott' TANA FRENCH 'The Turnout takes you so far into the world of a small ballet school that you feel the characters' aches and pains in your joints, your feet and, most dangerous of all, your heart' LAURA LIPPMAN 'A twisting, turning story of revenge and redemption' STYLIST
