Not specific to mother tantra but good introductions and overviews:"The Treasury of Knowledge, Book 6, Part 4, Systems of Buddhist Tantra"
, Jamgon KongtrulPrinciples of Buddhist Tantra
, HE Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche, Chöje Ngawang Palden, Ian Coghlan, Voula Zarpani
Also Lama Yeshe's books on tantra but I don't have any recommendations because I unfortunately have none of his books anymore. I don't remember if he specifically addresses mother tantra in his boos but probably he does. You can get a kind of preview by checking out his teachings in the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.
But without instruction from a lama most of the first text dealing with mother tantra will be incomprehensible. Then mostly books dealing with specific mother tantra will also be incomprehensible and possible counterproductive.
An exception to this are texts dealing with the Kalachakra tantra and it's practice . In "Systems of Buddhist Tantra" (the first book listed), Jamgon Kongtrul lists Kalachakra tantra as the highest mother tantra (Kalachakra tantra is also considered nondual in other lineages [Sakya and maybe Gelug for example]). The reason for this is that the Kalachakra tantra is considered a clear tantra where the teachings are generally stated clearly and directly. Other highest yoga tantras are not clear or direct.
