The breakneck thriller that inspired TV sensation Killing Eve, starring Sandra Oh, "unlike any other spy drama you've seen" (Daily Beast). Villanelle (a codename, of course) is one of the world's most skilled assassins. A catlike psychopath whose love for the creature comforts of her luxurious lifestyle is second only to her love of the game, she specializes in murdering the world's richest and most powerful. But when she murders an influential Russian politician, she draws a relentless foe to her tail. Eve Polastri (not a codename) is a former MI6 operative hired by the national security services for a singular task: to find and capture or kill the assassin responsible, and those who have aided her. Eve, whose quiet and otherwise unextraordinary life belies her quick wit and keen intellect, accepts the mission. The ensuing chase will lead them on a trail around the world, intersecting with corrupt governments and powerful criminal organizations, all leading towards a final confrontation from which neither will emerge unscathed. Codename Villanelle is a sleek, fast-paced international thriller from an exciting new voice in fiction.… (més)

Definitely a great short story. I want more! ( )

its a very action packed, fast paced, little book about two women (one an elite assassin working for an international shadowy group, the other a mid-level British intelligence analyst) hunting each other.

not a lot more to say...i wish the characters of the two main characters have been explored more, but i guess there's only so much room in a 200-page book.

was a lot of fun to read! ( )

I avoided Killing Eve when the series was popular because that's me, but decided belatedly to give the books which form 'the basis' of the TV adaptation a try - and I'm impressed! I was a bit concerned initially about a male author writing female characters, from the beautiful but deadly Villanelle to Eve, the woman tasked with hunting her down, who is described thus:

With her make-up-free complexion and shoulder-length hair gathered in a scrappy up-do, she looks like someone for whom there are more important things than being thought pretty.

But Luke Jennings just about gets away with semi-objectifying the female characters by making Villanelle such a cool character - shades of the obnoxious The Girl With ... but less of the little girl victim saved by the rugged hero and more an emotionless murder machine. The dialogue is believable too.

Fast paced and fun to read, I have already downloaded book two (thanks to the cliffhanger format)! ( )

the show is one of my favorites, so i was extremely excited to read the book, and i was disappointed. it's not bad, but the author's style is mediocre, and it made the book worse. i loved villanelle in here, but i think he gave too much information, and that ruined her a bit for me. i'm not sure i'll keep reading the series.

"Twelve red fish. A unanimous sentence of death."

I picked this up as I was interested in the television series, and I was pleasantly surprised! Basically, it is in two parts - one about Villanelle, a cold-blooded assassin working for "the Twelve", and the other about Eve, the woman who has vowed to catch her! I liked Villanelle's story more, but overall it was a good read on both accounts!

Not a really new concept, I mean "Modesty Blaise" has been around since 1963, and there have been loads of movies that basically have the same type of plot. But that doesn't mean that it's redundant or boring. Jennings makes it his own, and the cat-and-mouse piece really works well! My only major problem with this book is that it doesn't have a ending, and is clearly intended for sequels. I'm not a fan of that, and believe that books should be able to stand alone on their own. Still, I'm very likely to pick up the next one, based on my enjoyment of this one! ( )
