Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” AudioFile
“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
