THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND THE PERFECT READ FOR FANS OF KILLING EVE
THE BEST OF SKIMM READS 2016
“One of this year’s most talked about novels.” —The Washington Post
“A twenty-first-century femme fatale as lethal as Tom Ripley and as seductive as Bacall.” —Vogue
A put-upon assistant at a prestigious London art house, Judith Rashleigh is well-educated, well-groomed, and impeccably behaved—keeping the darker desires she indulges on nights off as her own little secret. But when Judith uncovers a dangerous heist, her life is shattered and she’s forced to run. Armed with just her wits and a talent for self-invention, she makes her way from the French Riviera to Geneva, Rome, and the nightclubs of Paris, determined to take back what is rightfully hers.
The beginning of a darkly irresistible trilogy, Maestra follows the rise of Judith, a woman whose vulnerability and ruthlessness have left readers worldwide begging to know: where do you go when you've gone too far?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We are hooked on Maestra, the first book in a new trilogy. The novel’s intelligent, pathologically independent, kinky, and predatory heroine is Judith Rashleigh, who’s attempting to escape her impoverished Liverpool upbringing and crack into the upper echelons of London’s fine-art business. After a series of dodgy choices sets Judith’s career back, she embarks on a cross-European journey of deception and reinvention that becomes more twisted and transgressive at every turn. Author L. S. Hilton sold the film rights to her series before this first installment was even finished. We’re telling all our friends about this dark, racy tale about a woman’s raging rampage against a man’s world.
Great Read 2020
I picked this book up from dollar trees yesterday thats right dollar tree as I begin to read. I thought to myself this is a great book so I had to find out the original cost I’m only on chapter 6 so far but hunnie this book is good lol if you can’t find it at dollar tree still buy it here it’s worth it 😊
It’s depraved and disgusting. The idea that this woman keeps killing people because they’ve gotten in her way is sad. The epilogue for the next book is no better.
Unusual, but compelling...
Very well written. I could have done with a lot less graphic sexual detail (hence the 4 stars) but overall well worth it...
