Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of April 2016: A psychological thriller reminiscent of The Talented Mr. Ripley except that here Tom Ripley is the unreliable narrator Judith Rashleigh, a woman with a penchant for art, fashion and--let’s just call it what it is--X-rated sex. At first Judith seems to be an ambitious working class girl trying to rise above her shabby roots and gain entry into the upper echelon of the art world and society, a world she knows she belongs in but can’t quite touch. And that is where things begin, but when Judith is wronged, instead of falling apart she becomes someone new--a dangerous chameleon who’s calculating ways gain entry to the glamorous life. Maestra challenges what you think you know about the characters and action right up until the very end in this smart, morally tangled, and very promising beginning to a new trilogy. --Seira Wilson

Review

“A radical heroine. She deploys a uniquely female arsenal...weaponizing femininity...It’s hard not to feel vicariously empowered by a woman unapologetically in pursuit. Let’s call her the Sheryl Sandberg of sociopaths, leaning in to the hilt.”O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“One of this year’s most talked-about novels. A fascinating novel about a young woman on the make . . . More mayhem, more art—and certainly more sex—lie ahead for insatiable Judith.”The Washington Post 
 
“This year's most erotic novel. . . . Unapologetic, confident and quite the sociopath, protagonist Judith Rashleigh is no Anastasia Steele.”New York Post
 
“[A] shopathon travelogue thriller that has billionaires, art world scheming, and a sociopathic heroine who can unfasten belt buckles with her teeth.”The New York Times

“An unpredictable London auction-house assistant turned high-class escort slips effortlessly into the world of the glamorous and wealthy, crossing international borders and leaving destruction in her wake.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“The European art world mixes with an underground world (hint: sex parties). This thriller is like The Talented Mr. Ripley meets The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Warning: it’s VNSFW. That V is for very.” —The Skimm

 “[J]ubilantly mordant...A twenty-first-century femme fatale as lethal as Tom Ripley and as seductive as Bacall.” -Vogue
 
“Ever since Gillian Flynn dominated the book club circuit (and the big screen) with her psychological thriller Gone Girl, everyone's been waiting for the next mystery to sink their teeth into. [Maestra] is it..”—InStyle

“A taut, meaty thriller . . . Judith Rashleigh’s single-minded and self-centered quest for wealth and acceptance could well be the most compelling since Patrick Bateman’s.”—Chicago Review of Books

“As readable as any crime thriller, but also clearly belongs in the literary tradition of Moll Flanders and Vanity Fair.”—Sunday Times (UK)

“Meet Judith, an art-house assistant who’ll make you root for the bad girl once you really get to know her.”—Marie Claire

“Thank the book gods that L. S. Hilton’s Maestra is only the first installment in a series.”—Redbook

“You’re going to want to hurry up and read this R-rated psychological thriller before it hits the big screen—it’s already been optioned by Columbia Pictures. Think 50 Shades of Grey meets The Talented Mr. Ripley.”—Allure.com

“Delicious escapism—I loved it!”—Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go

“[A] deliciously Highsmithian thriller...As Judith assumes and sheds identities as effortlessly as her Louboutins during a twisty series of increasingly treacherous escapades, Hilton artfully conjures a glossy world where just about everything—and everyone—has its price.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Delicious...at once glamorous, edgy, decadent (like rich but somewhat bitter dark chocolate), erotic, and irresistible. Judith Rashleigh is just full of surprises. She is ruthless and yet, unlike [Patricia Highsmith’s] Ripley, she is vulnerable...[Maestra] is a gift for readers who delight in vengeful female protagonists.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Utterly un-put-down-able, a shocking and sexy psychological thriller.”—Popsugar
