Maestra Cover Image

Availability: On our shelves now at one or more of our stores
Published: G.P. Putnam's Sons - April 4th, 2017

Saucy and flossy, flossy. Entirely shocking, brazenly lush, and on a whole 'nother level of sociopathic behavior that still managed to catch me off guard when I was thoroughly expecting it. This definitely isn't a book for everyone - it's ruthless, ambitious, and erotic in a way that will inspire and disgust you... but in the best way, as only books can do.

Suspenseful and thrilling!
