With the cunning of Gone Girl’s Amy Dunne, and as dangerous as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Lisbeth Salander, the femme fatale of this Talented Mr. Ripley–esque psychological thriller is sexy, smart, and very, very bad in all the best ways.

Judith Rashleigh spends her days as a put-upon assistant at a prestigious London art house, and her nights moonlighting as a hostess at one of the capital’s notorious champagne bars.

To get what she wants …

Born on the outside, always looking in, Judith has worked hard to learn the rules of class. She’s transformed her accent, taught herself about wine and the correct use of a dessert fork, not to mention the art of discretion. When she landed the job at British Pictures she thought she was finally on the make, but in a place like the House it turns out she may never pass the test. When Judith is fired after spotting an art forgery that could have made her career, she turns to the long-neglected friend that kept her chin up and back straight through every slight: Rage.

… she will cross every line.

Feeling reckless, she agrees to accompany one of the champagne bar’s biggest clients to the French Riviera only to find herself alone after a fatal accident. Tired of striving and the slow crawl to the top, Judith makes a decision. If you need to turn yourself into someone else, loneliness is a good place to start. Armed with beauty, wits, and insider knowledge of the art fraud that triggered her dismissal, Judith is determined to make her debonair lifestyle permanent—and her transformation complete.

Maestra is a glamorous, ferocious psychological thriller and the beginning of a razor-sharp trilogy.

  • “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.”
