Summary

Judith Rashleigh returns in the stunning new thriller from the author of the worldwide number one best seller Maestra.

She thought her troubles were over...they're only just getting started.

Judith Rashleigh has made it. Living a life of luxury amidst the splendour of Venice, she's just starting to grow comfortable. Which is when her past catches up with her.

Someone knows what Judith's done. Facing blackmail, Judith can save herself only by finding a priceless picture - unfortunately one she's convinced doesn't exist.

And she isn't the only one seeking it.

This time Judith isn't in control. Outflanked and out-thought, outrun and outgunned, she faces an enemy more powerful and more ruthless than she ever imagined. And if she doesn't win, she dies.

Review of the SERIES...

Really enjoyed the first two novels on the series and especially the rendition of the character by Emelia Fox ... so very disappointed that she did not read the third book in the series which in my view sounded as if Sophie was reading at gun point!
Her voice droned on especially during the narration picking up when other characters were involved, indeed I thought she was good at this ... Chapter Six was awful as read by Sophie, indeed it is an excellent example of what I mean... she reads as if she is bored with the book and would rather be having a siesta...
the story was very good and the research was detailed and very interesting.
Should you be tempted to read just this one you could get away with it and it happily does not repeat the story line from the first two books to the point where if you have listened to them you are frustrated with the repetition (as in book two), however I do think one should listen to them all, even if it’s just to try to get your head/ imagination round the more raunchy descriptions !

Unsubtle sex scene descriptions

Sorry to say that I thought the book was lacking any subtlety with its sexual blunt descriptions. Without doubt this is an example of describing too much in a scene by using too many profanities. I realise it is unfair to compare this book to great novels such as Lady Chatterley’s Lover, but there are many examples where the less said is better for the listener and only a subtle signpost is required to allow the listener to employ their imagination and take it where they want it to lead their minds. I hope L. S. Hilton will make some comparisons if other readers/listeners have never raised this point regarding her work. This is a great shame as Emilia Fox is so good an actress with her ability of voice tone and nuanced sensuality and, dare I say, delivering erotic prose. What a pity this raw text precluded Emilia from showing listeners her talents. We can only hope she is given more elbow room in the future and is not so restricted.

The author’s knowledge of Art and Art History and using the currency of ‘Russian scammers’ helped to carry the book to the last page.

Phew!!!

Another L. S. HILTON triumph.
Its performance by Emilia Fox a masterstroke, bringing the multitudinous characters to life and keeping the story bowling along with nuances of innuendo in her beautiful voice. I can hardly wait to start the next book.

Returned this

I bought this book in the sale by accident - ages ago I’d put the first of the series in my wish list and so this came up as a linked recommendation (based on genre/interest I suppose) and as I was in a hurry, added it to my basket. Obviously, there’s the fact that I’ve not read the first but still, I dare question the flow and plot twists and illogical conclusions that the main character jumps to. Maybe one day I’ll come back to the series and have to delete this review...😕

A fantastic sequel

building up from where we last met Judith the story takes her on another adventure. it is well written and despite the subject matter surprisingly relievable well worth a listen highly recommended

This one didn’t do it for me

Why not? Because I found the plot to be mostly incomprehensible, overly convoluted and incoherent with unconvincing characters straight out of central casting eg the scheming Russian Oligarchs, the embittered wives, the whores on the make and the sleazy rent boys.

As enjoyable as Maestra for the intelligent racy reader

I loved it from start to finish it's a good story and I found the attention to detail especially around Caravaggio very interesting and worked well alongside the books main story and characters.

Can't wait for the third book.
