The combination of the success of Michaelides' first Book The Silent Patient and the reference to the classics and Greek mythology, meant that this was a book I was very much looking forward to.
A Cambridge University student is found dead. Her friend's aunt in a psychotherapist and former student and believes that the killer is the charismatic classics lecturer, who has a special group of students he calls The Maidens. The police don't agree, believing it to be the girl's boyfriend. So the psychotherapist goes to discover the truth herself.
