YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN THE MAIDENS.



The Maidens are Cambridge University's most exclusive society, whose members are selected by the charismatic professor of Greek tragedy, Edward Fosca.



A SECRETIVE SET OF THE BRIGHTEST, MOST CAPTIVATING STUDENTS.



When one of the Maidens is murdered, grieving young therapist Mariana Andros is drawn back to the idyllic campus where she was once herself a student.



THE GROUP FROM WHICH EACH VICTIM WILL BE CHOSEN.



Because beneath the university's ancient traditions and beauty is a web of secrets, jealousy and lies. And when the killer threatens the person she loves most, Mariana will give anything to stop them - even her own life...



From the #1 global bestselling author of The Silent Patient comes a spellbinding tale of psychological suspense, weaving together Greek mythology, murder, and obsession...
