Judith Rashleigh trabaja de secretaria en una prestigiosa casa de subastas en Londres, pero su sueno de introducirse en el mundo del arte ha ido perdiendo fuerza gradualmente debido a la corrupcion y esnobismo del sector. Para salir adelante, acepta otro trabajo de camarera en un bar de mala muerte del West End, aunque el pluriempleo la deja exhausta. Un dia, descubre una conspiracion en la casa de subastas, y la despiden antes de que pueda exponer el fraude. Desesperada, acepta una oferta de un cliente del bar, que le pide que lo acompane a la Riviera francesa. Tras un intento desacertado de administrar sedantes a su acompanante, con consecuencias trascendentales, Judith tendra que darse a la fuga. Sola y en peligro, lo unico que podra hacer es confiar en su habilidad consumada para moverse con facilidad entre los ricos y famosos, y su conocimiento privilegiado del fraude en el mundo del arte enormemente lucrativo que provoco su despido. / 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, MAESTRA is a shockingly original thriller. With a heroine as wickedly perceptive as Amy Dunne and as dangerous as Lisbeth Salander, this marks the beginning of a razor-sharp and meteoric sequence of novels that will have readers around the world on the edge of their seats and holding their breath.
