Review: Maestra

Maestra Maestra by L.S. Hilton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read this book in a day and a half. It's not going to win any literary prizes, but it's anyway fascinating. It's guilty reading for sure.
After Judith Rashleigh is fired from her work at a London auction art house when she discovers a fraud, she travels to France with a guy she met while moonlighting as a waitress in a sleazy cocktail bar. Things happen, the guy dies and Judy sets on to a terrific (and murderous) rampage through Europe.
There's very graphic sex (lots of it), millions of Euros, art, name dropping and high end fashion.
It may seem strange to root for the psychopathic anti heroine, but I liked Judy. She'd probably murder me in my sleep, but she's a true character.
Why only 3 stars? As far as fiction goes, you can't go on a murdering tour of Europe and not get caught, right? No prints, no witnesses, no money trail?
But, I do want to read the next book. On the beach, on an airplane, this is the perfect Summer book.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
