30. The Maidens by Alex Michaelides :: 8.5/10⭐️. When girls at Cambridge University turn up murdered only one person becomes a clear suspect, Greek tragedy professor and leader of The Maidens (a secret group) Edward Fosca. Mariana, a group therapy psychologist visits the university to comfort her niece, Zoe, and help in the investigation. It seems that Professors Fosca has an alibi for every murder.. is he working with someone, or is the murderer someone else entirely? I listened to this one on audio and really didn’t expect the ending at all! I will say, you should read the Silent Patient first if you haven’t already because I got really excited when there was some character crossover towards the end! 30. It was reminiscent of It Girl by Ruth Ware to me. So if you were a fan of that one you’ll probably like this one too.
