Join bestselling author of The Silent Patient, Alex Michaelides, for this virtual event to celebrate the publication of another sophisticated and hugely original literally thriller revolving around Cambridge Classicists and secret sororities.
St. Christopher’s College, Cambridge, is a closed world to most.
For Mariana Andros – a group therapist struggling through her private grief – it’s where she met her late husband. For her niece, Zoe, it’s the tragic scene of her best friend’s murder.
As memory and mystery entangle Mariana, she finds a society full of secrets, which has been shocked to its core by the murder of one of its students.
Because behind its idyllic beauty is a web of jealousy and rage which emanates from an exclusive set of students known only as The Maidens. A group under the sinister influence of the enigmatic professor Edward Fosca.
A man who seems to know more than anyone about the murders – and the victims. And the man who will become the prime suspect in Mariana’s investigation – an obsession which will cost her everything.
In conversation, Alex will share the inspiration behind his new novel, and how his writing weaves together Greek mythology, psychology, and murder...
