No Tomorrow #5*Review – Killing Eve #2 – Luke Jennings

In a hotel room in Venice, where she’s just completed a routine assassination, Villanelle receives a late-night call.

Eve Polastri has discovered that a senior MI5 officer is in the pay of the Twelve, and is about to debrief him. As Eve interrogates her subject, desperately trying to fit the pieces of the puzzle together, Villanelle moves in for the kill.

The duel between the two women intensifies, as does their mutual obsession, and when the action moves from the high passes of the Tyrol to the heart of Russia, Eve finally begins to unwrap the enigma of her adversary’s true identity.

My Thoughts…

Having enjoyed, if that’s the word, the TV series ‘Killing Eve’, I wanted to read the books that inspired the series.

The story is adrenaline-fuelled, clever, dark, fast-paced and rich in vivid imagery. Obviously, the characters assume the faces of the actors in the TV series I watched, but the settings, horrific killings and the continually intensifying relationship between Eve and Villanelle are perfectly executed in the book. The thrills, twists and terrible events are delivered at a fast pace, making this a page-turner, even if you haven’t seen the TV series.

Dark humour, multiple plot twists and characters who are larger than life, but remain believable make this story the perfect read, for lovers of spy thrillers, intense female relationships and hard-hitting action fiction.

I received a copy of this book from John Murray Press via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
