This was a fact that Mariana knew from the very beginning.

The story takes place at a college campus. Mariana, a thirty six year old is a group therapist who lives in London. She recently lost her husband, Sebastian who has been the love of her life. To Mariana, life without Sebastian seems incomplete. His memories keep coming back in Marianaโ€™s mind throughout the book.

One day, Marian receives a call from her niece Zoe who is a student in Cambridge. After Sebastian, if Mariana loved someone then that would be Zoe (Zoeโ€™s parents died) and they both are always there to support each other. Zoe told her that a murder took place in Cambrige and the girl who got mudered was Tara (Zoeโ€™s friend). Mariana decided to take a train to Cambridge because after what happened, she feels that she has to be there with her niece. Mariana paired up with her nice to solve the murder mystery. The both began to suspect Professor Edward Fosca who has a special group for women and the group is called โ€œThe Maidensโ€. Tara was also part of this group.

I was enjoying the initial chapters but I started to lose interest after reading 40% of the book. Continuing to read was the best decision because I was completely shocked by the ending. OMG!!!! I wasnโ€™t even executing that plot twist. Not even in my dreams!! I would have given it 4.5 or 5 stars but didnโ€™t because I thought that โ€œThe Silent Patientโ€ was better than this book. The story was definitely fast paced and the story was unique. This will be a perfect read for people who are into greek history. To be honest, I was not aware of the greek history but I got to know a lot of things from this book.
