THE BEST OF SKIMM READS 2016

“One of this year’s most talked about novels.” —The Washington Post

“A twenty-first-century femme fatale as lethal as Tom Ripley and as seductive as Bacall.” —Vogue 

A put-upon assistant at a prestigious London art house, Judith Rashleigh is well-educated, well-groomed, and impeccably behaved—keeping the darker desires she indulges on nights off as her own little secret. But when Judith uncovers a dangerous heist, her life is shattered and she’s forced to run. Armed with just her wits and a talent for self-invention, she makes her way from the French Riviera to Geneva, Rome, and the nightclubs of Paris, determined to take back what is rightfully hers.

The beginning of a darkly irresistible trilogy, Maestra follows the rise of Judith, a woman whose vulnerability and ruthlessness have left readers worldwide begging to know: where do you go when you've gone too far?

Baker & Taylor
A confidence woman and femme fatale uses her talents for self-invention to assume various identities and penetrate the invisible clubs of the debonair and wealthy, in a debut entry in a psychological thriller trilogy.

Baker
& Taylor

"With the cunning of Gone Girl's Amy Dunne, and as dangerous as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Lisbeth Salander, the femme fatale of this Talented Mr. Ripley-esque psychological thriller is sexy, smart, and very, very bad in all the best ways"--
A con artist and femme fatale uses her talents for self-invention to assume various identities and penetrate the invisible clubs of the debonair and wealthy.

I wanted to like this book. The fashion, the art fraud, the femme fatal. Mix this in with hard core, nothing to do with the plot sex. Make me uncomfortable sex. I am usually fine with some sex scenes - I breezed through 50 Shades. I liked it enough to finish it, but not enough to recommend it.
