Luke Jennings - Killing Eve (Codename Villanelle) (2nd Hand Paperback)
The basis for Killing Eve, now a major BBC TV series, starring Jodie Comer & Sandra Oh.
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.

"A dazzling thriller . . . mightily entertaining" - Guardian.
"Entertaining, clever and darkly comic" - New York Times.
"If you have seen Killing Eve then the book is a must read. If you haven't seen the TV series, but like a good thriller then this book is a must read. The TV series has represented the book really well, but as with books there are details in here that are hard to pick up from the TV series. It's a well written, fast paced thriller. I loved it." - Google Review.
'Gloriously exciting' - Metro.
