**THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**
"Alex Michaelides's long-awaited next novel, 'The Maidens,' is finally here...the premise is enticing and the elements irresistible."
The New York Times
"A deliciously dark, elegant, utterly compulsive readwith a twist that blew my mind. I loved this even more than I loved The Silent Patient and that's saying something!"
Lucy Foley, New York Times bestselling author of The Guest List

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient comes a spellbinding tale of psychological suspense, weaving together Greek mythology, murder, and obsession, that further cements "Michaelides as a major player in the field" (Publishers Weekly).

Edward Fosca is a murderer. Of this Mariana is certain. But Fosca is untouchable. A handsome and charismatic Greek tragedy professor at Cambridge University, Fosca is adored by staff and students alikeparticularly by the members of a secret society of female students known as The Maidens.
Mariana Andros is a brilliant but troubled group therapist who becomes fixated on The Maidens when one member, a friend of Mariana's niece Zoe, is found murdered in Cambridge.
Mariana, who was once herself a student at the university, quickly suspects that behind the idyllic beauty of the spires and turrets, and beneath the ancient traditions, lies something sinister. And she becomes convinced that, despite his alibi, Edward Fosca is guilty of the murder. But why would the professor target one of his students? And why does he keep returning to the rites of Persephone, the maiden, and her journey to the underworld?
When another body is found, Mariana's obsession with proving Fosca's guilt spirals out of control, threatening to destroy her credibility as well as her closest relationships. But Mariana is determined to stop this killer, even if it costs her everythingincluding her own life.

Very unexpected twist in the end. Had ties to the silent patient. Great book. ( )

“Once you kill another human being, there’s no going back.”

Not quite as good as his debut novel, but good! It's another therapist turned detective to find a killer.
And Euripides is heavily featured again. AND, The Grove makes another appearance! (I got a big smile from the “ah-ha!” moment that on page 271!)
It moves along at a crisp pace, and weaves quite a Greek tragedy on the college campus. My small complaint is that it wraps up incredibly quickly, much too quickly for my liking. Part Six is only 14 pages long! But, I was still entertained enough to be interested in this author's next novel, "The Fury". I wonder if there will be a therapist in it?... ( )

Wow that was a disappointment all the way around. ( )

Psychological thriller for lovers of literature

Not only is this a murder mystery, it is a psychological thriller! The author references Tennyson, but also Sophocles and Euripides. The novel is set in Cambridge, in the fictional St. Christopher's College, so the references are not out of place. For me they enhanced my interest in the story! ( )

Citat

The temple was dedicated to Demeter, goddess of the harvest—goddess of life—and to her daughter, Persephone—goddess of death. The two goddesses were often worshipped together, two sides of the same coin—mother and daughter, life and death. In Greek, Persephone was known simply as Kore, meaning "maiden."
Reading about life was no preparation for living it
