A fast, sexy, journey-length read.Villanelle is a psychopath and a trained assassin, as beautiful as she is lethal. As night falls on the Ukrainian city of Odessa, Villanelle prepares to break into the fortified mansion where Konstantin, her mentor, is held hostage. In London, meanwhile, Eve Polastri of MI6 is rewarded with a breakthrough as she and her team pursue Villanelle and the shadowy network for whom she kills.In a deadly battle of wits, Villanelle is pitted against the brilliant and ferociously determined Eve. This is a thriller series with a difference. The writing is blade-sharp, and the sex as fierce as the action."What I enjoy about Villanelle is that she is robotic and ruthless and kills to order, but you don’t in any way dislike her. Her effortless cool and glamour and cleverness ensure that. Villanelle is a professional killing machine and she does her job, never stopping to query the ethics or the rights and wrongs of her work. Actually, neither did I, very much. A gripping story. Well written. Fast paced. Two great female characters. What’s not to love?"

Finally the fourth short story of Villanelle which finishes these original kindle single now combined into a four chaptered novel 'Codename Villanelle'.The normal relationship between Villanelle and her handler Konstantin is interrupted in this brief account where the mission isn't quite what she normally engages in, working as a team to rescue a hostage.Meanwhile back in London Eve still has the bit between her teeth determined to stop at all costs the unknown female assassin.Overall a good series of episodes from the chronicles of this mysterious hit woman, devoid of real emotion, a model sociopath who uses sex as an extension of control but is incapable of sharing meaningful relationships.The ending promises more but it will now be judged on its united format which by nature of its four separate parts perhaps does not make for a smooth read.
