'Abbott creates a dark and mesmerising world ... It makes Black Swan look like a children's story' HARRIET TYCE, bestselling author of BLOOD ORANGE
***The new thriller, set in the hothouse world of a ballet school, from the multi-award-winning writer Megan Abbott***
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.
'So fresh and unexpected, so wholly revelatory ... This is Megan Abbott working at the absolute height of her talent' ATTICA LOCKE
'All one needs to know about a Megan Abbott book is that it's a Megan Abbott book -- dreamy, sexy, a deep dive into a subculture that has been exhaustively researched. The Turnout is all those things and more, taking 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
'Megan Abbott is the perfect storyteller-compelling, confounding and unconventional' VAL MCDERMID
