A shockingly original thriller - the launch title of Zaffre, the new fiction imprint of Bonnier Publishing Fiction Judith Rashleigh works as an assistant in a prestigious London auction house, but her dreams of breaking into the art world have been gradually dulled by the blunt forces of snobbery and corruption. To make ends meet she moonlights as a hostess in one of the West End's less salubrious bars - although her work there pales against her activities on nights off. When Judith stumbles across a conspiracy at her auction house, she is fired before she can expose the fraud. In desperation, she accepts an offer from one of the bar's clients to accompany him to the French Riviera. But when an ill-advised attempt to slip him sedatives has momentous consequences, Judith finds herself fleeing for her life. Now alone and in danger, all Judith has to rely on is her consummate ability to fake it amongst the rich and famous - and the inside track on the hugely lucrative art fraud that triggered her dismissal. Set in the exotic palaces and yachts of Europe's seriously wealthy. With a heroine as wickedly perceptive as Amy Dunne and as dangerous as Lisbeth Salander, this marks the beginning of a sequence of novels that will have readers around the world on the edge of their seats and holding their breath.

However the hype did not live up to reality and i was very disappointed ranking it as a waste of several hours of my life as i waded thru it to point where i gave up.
Cliched, predictable plot that was also poorly written.
Gave it one star because that is the lowest available score
If a man wrote this (and I'm not a prude) it would be condemned as pornography, the sex scenes seem to simply cover up what's generally only average writing by exploiting simple titliation. I can't understand why this has had so much publicity. Its basically a poor mans basic instinct. I won't spoil the plot for others but its not believable how the main protagonist ends up down this path, the inciting event just doesn't seem plausible
I won't be reading the sequel
