Description

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.

skip it

if you want mindless sex and violence with a sprinkling of transphobia, read this. if you want genuine suspense and meaningful characterization/character interactions, watch the show.

Not the Same as the TV Show -- But Worthwhile!

I thought I would read the gook after watching Season 1 on Hulu. I am glad to say that it is not a duplicate of the show's storyline and, if you like the characters on the show, you should enjoy the book. My problem is that Villanelle is "beautiful" but has a visible scar. When in fact to be unnoticeable, it is best to not stand out in any way. Take a look at most models without make-up -- very plain. But it is their ability to be "transformed" that makes them stars. If Villanelle is trying to become an assassin who is internationally known but elusive -- like the Jackal -- this story-line makes sense. And I enjoy Eve's home life. She is accessible and understandable. However, both women need a little more fleshing out in the books and need more twists in the book like the TV show has. I don't like to know where a story is going before the writer gets there, and some of the scenes in the book I can predict too easily.

The narrator has a bit of a hard time keeping accents straight, which becomes a bit irritating. Other than that it is a good performance.
