#netgalley #codename illanelleVillanelle is a sociopath, who feels nothing but the thrill of killing. She is an assassin employed by an unknown organisation. She is ruthless, strong and very good at her job.
Eve Polastri, is recruited to work for a secret group within the British Government, she has the determination to catch the assassin using any means possible with her small team.
Luke Jennings has created a stylish, glamorous and completely deadly character in Villanelle and while she is quite evil, it’s hard to dislike her.
This is a fast paced thriller, which reminded me of Robert Ludlum’s books, with the espionage and world travel, but with strong female characters that are at times relatable, such as when Eve cuts herself shaving and has to attend a meeting with a stinging armpit.
Some great writing, with murders, blood, gore and some heart rending moments. I just couldn’t put it down. Brilliant stuff and I’m looking forward to the next one.
I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
