This is book number 1 in the Maestra series.
“Get ready to tear through this hedonistic and refreshingly sex-positive thriller that hits all the right notes. Hilton sets her amoral heroine, Judith, amidst the shallow elegance of the European art world. While Judith is deeply enamored with the lifestyles of the rich and famous, she is also a razor-sharp critic of bad taste and human softness, sniffing out and exploiting male weakness with gusto. She is utterly void of empathy, yet oddly sympathetic. I'll be recommending this novel to everyone I know with a strong constitution and an appreciation for intensity!”

Sex. Murder. Shoes. A shockingly original and darkly decadent thriller.
By day Judith Rashleigh is a put-upon assistant at a London auction house. By night she's a hostess in one of the capital's unsavory bars. Desperate to make something of herself, Judith knows she has to play the game. She's learned to dress, speak, and act in the interests of men. She's trying to be a good girl.
But after uncovering a dark secret at the heart of the art world, Judith is fired, and her dreams of a better life are torn apart. So she turns to a long-neglected friend. A friend who kept her chin up and back straight through every past slight. A friend a good girl like her shouldn't have.
