From Bookbrunch (29/09/15):
Zaffre signed world rights in Maestra, an art world thriller with a dangerously sexy heroine, through Toby Mundy of Toby Mundy Associates. The novel has gone on to sell in 25 territories, as well as to film producer Amy Pascal and TriStar Pictures. Hilton is previously the author, as Lisa Hilton, of books including Elizabeth: Renaissance Prince (Weidenfeld) and the novel Wolves in Winter (Corvus).
Publication will be on 10 March. Bonnier Publishing Fiction CEO Mark Smith said: “We’re incredibly excited to be revealing the cover for Maestra. Here we have something bold, striking and completely original which really captures the spirit of the novel and is quite unmissable; and we’re thrilled t hat the hugely talented Erin Cressida Wilson is on board to write the screenplay of Maestra. Her track record with films such as Secretary and now The Girl on the Train is the perfect fit for this smart and sexy thriller – and I can’t wait to see the result!”
Hilton’s heroine Judith Rashleigh works in a prestigious London auction house by day and an insalubrious bar at night. When she stumbles across a conspiracy, she ends up in a battle for her life
