Want to start a book club with friends or family, but it sounds like a lot of coordinating? Want to make the task of getting the books or coming up with discussion topics easier and on your schedule? Buy one of our DIY Bookclub Kits! You'll receive copies of The Maidens by Alex Michaelides for everyone in your club, along with question sheets and bookmarks to accompany each book.
The Maidens is one of those rare books that you’ll want to read cover to cover in one sitting. Michaelides threads ancient Greek and Roman tragedies into the mystery, making it even more exciting and compelling for classics fanatics. This story truly transports you from one world to another.
Edward Fosca is a murderer. Of this Mariana is certain. But Fosca is untouchable. A handsome and charismatic Greek tragedy professor at Cambridge University, Fosca is adored by staff and students alike—particularly by the members of a secret society of female students known as The Maidens.
Mariana Andros is a brilliant but troubled group therapist who becomes fixated on The Maidens when one member, a friend of Mariana’s niece Zoe, is found murdered in Cambridge.
Mariana, who was once herself a student at the university, quickly suspects that behind the idyllic beauty of the spires and turrets, and beneath the ancient traditions, lies something sinister. And she becomes convinced that, despite his alibi, Edward Fosca is guilty of the murder. But why would the professor target one of his students? And why does he keep returning to the rites of Persephone, the maiden, and her journey to the underworld?
When another body is found, Mariana’s obsession with proving Fosca’s guilt spirals out of control, threatening to destroy her credibility as well as her closest relationships. But Mariana is determined to stop this killer, even if it costs her everything—including her own life.
