Jason Bourne meets The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in an outrageously entertaining thriller

Killing Eve: Codename Villanelle Summary

Killing Eve: Codename Villanelle: The basis for the BAFTA-winning Killing Eve TV series by Luke Jennings

The basis for KILLING EVE, now a major BBC TV series, starring Sandra Oh

'Gloriously exciting' Metro

She is the perfect assassin.

A Russian orphan, saved from the death penalty for the brutal revenge she took on her gangster father's killers.

Ruthlessly trained. Given a new life. New names, new faces - whichever fits.

Her paymasters call themselves The Twelve. But she knows nothing of them. Konstantin is the man who saved her and the one she answers to.

She is Villanelle. Without conscience. Without guilt. Without weakness.

Eve Polastri is the woman who hunts her. MI5, until one error of judgment costs her everything.

Then stopping a ruthless assassin becomes more than her job. It becomes personal.

Originally published as ebook singles: Codename Villanelle, Hollowpoint, Shanghai and Odessa.

No Tomorrow and Die For Me, the following books in the Killing Eve series, are available now!

Praise for Killing Eve TV series

'A dazzling thriller . . . mightily entertaining' Guardian

'Entertaining, clever and darkly comic' New York Times

Killing Eve: Codename Villanelle Reviews

A short howitzer of a novel . . . Jennings writes at supersonic speed, packing in an impressive number of violent set pieces and sex scenes. The breakneck pace is undeniably addictive but he also displays an offbeat sense of humour * Metro *
A memorable protagonist . . . there is an extra sheen of glamour that makes Villanelle more a James Bond than a mere killer * Daily Mail *
Exciting and fun * Daily Express *
Like Ian Fleming, Jennings is at once tongue-in-cheek and serious . . . His version of 007 is great fun * Sunday Times *
Reads a little like Terry Hayes's I Am Pilgrim in miniature . . . the final pages are thrilling * The Spectator *
Racy in several senses and gripping from the word go, you can also see why BBC America commissioned a television version of Jennings's sensational thriller * Radio Times *
Topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse * Sunday Express *
