Codename Villanelle Summary

Codename Villanelle: The basis for Killing Eve, now a major BBC TV series by Luke Jennings

The basis for KILLING EVE, now a major BBC TV series, starring Sandra Oh, directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge

'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.

Villanelle: No Tomorrow is available for pre-order now!

Praise for Killing Eve TV series

'A dazzling thriller . . . mightily entertaining' Guardian

'Entertaining, clever and darkly comic' New York Times

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 *
