Mariana, a group therapist, is still coming to terms with her own private grief, after the loss of her husband. But when her niece, Zoe, calls her from her college at St Christopher's, saying her best friend has been murdered, Mariana knows she has to go to her. While it doesn't help Mariana's grief, as it's where she met her husband, she needs to help Zoe. As the story goes along we meet Professor Edward Fosca and his elusive group of female students at the college, The Maidens and question his involvement in the murder investigation. Mariana has her own suspicions about Fosca and won't stop until she gets some answers.

I loved the Silent Patient so must admit that I went into this one with such impossibly high expectations. I enjoyed the way this one started out and the mystery and intrigue. I loved the characters and their backstories and honestly could not figure out which way this one was headed. However, I needed to suspend belief in this one a little more than I am usually willing and that was the downfall. 3.5*

Thanks so much to Hachette Australia for this gifted advance review copy.
