“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? Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Judith is no victim and proves herself ballsier and more unflinching than the gangsters ostensibly running the show.”

    Glamour (UK)

  • “This is an erotic story in the style of Fifty Shades of Grey—for mature ears only…Emilia Fox narrates the detailed descriptions of the sexual liaisons scattered throughout the book in a deliberate upper-class British persona. Listeners will appreciate Fox’s dexterity with British accents that reflect an array of social classes across the characters. Those looking for erotica in audio will enjoy this.”


  • “Don’t underestimate Judith Rashleigh. With her life and everything she’s worked for at stake, Maestra’s fierce, unforgettable antiheroine crafts a brilliant and dangerous scheme that she will go to shocking lengths to pull off. An edgy, decadent thriller that delivers shocking twists.”

    Laura McHugh, Barry Award–nominated author

  • Maestra is riveting with a dominant character who is brilliant, sly, deadly, and entirely in control of her life. The book is unpredictable and multifaceted. Judith is one of the most memorable females in recent fiction.”

    Amy Pascal, film executive and producer

  • An Amazon Best Book of the Month for April 2016
  • A 2016 Booklist Top 10 Crime Fiction Debuts Selection
