Good Thriller with Mediocre Ending

One of the first books where I actually enjoyed the middle more than the ending. I was fascinated by Mariana's dedication to solving the murders and how wrapped up she got in them. She struggles with the fact that everyone around her seems to die in some way, shape, or form. The most recent and most devastating loss for Mariana was her husband Sebastian. The only remaining family she has left is Zoe, who tells her aunt that there has been a murder up at school. Mariana comes to make sure Zoe is ok but gets caught up in the mystery of it all. Mariana was an ok character to me - everything seemed very black and white to her. I did appreciate the constant references to psychology and Greek mythology, but the ending seemed wrong to me. It just didn't fit my expectations and I wasn't overly shocked, just more disappointed. But I did overall enjoy the story, just wish it didn't end the way it did.
