The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

Ages 18+

The Maidens

From the very beginning, we know that Edward Fosca is a murderer. Of this the main character, Mariana, is certain. Fosca is a Greek tragedy professor at the Cambridge University and is loved by both his colleagues and students, especially the group of women known as The Maidens. Mariana is a group therapist who becomes obsessed with Fosca when one of the Maidens is found murdered. This thriller is twisty and a great sophomore novel to follow up The Silent Patient.
