Publisher's summary

Please note: this is novella 1 of 4 which make up the Codename Villanelle series.

In a remand centre in the Ural Mountains, Oxana Vorontsova awaits trial for triple murder. Not what you’d expect from a star linguistics student. Half a world away, her potential has been noted. Sprung from prison and trained in the dark arts of assassination, she’s reborn as the beautiful, lethal Villanelle. The price of her luxurious new life: to eliminate targets assigned to her by a shadowy group of all-powerful businessmen.

Incomplete Book!

This book is incomplete and ends after chapter 3 telling you where to go to get true whole thing! The information when purchasing this product is very deceiving.

Not the whole book.

this is only a few chapters of the book with the ability to go to another website to purchase the rest of it. I was very disappointed and wasted 1 of my credits. I will look more closely next time at the hours (or less) in the description.

Warning: Not full novel

I bought this book once I was able to borrow a hardcover from the library with the hopes of being able to switch between audio and physical copies with ease. Unfortunately, the audio is of the first chapter only. I am not sure why it is the first chapter. At first, I thought the book hadn't finished downloading, but that waa not the case. I wish I had known about the lack of chapters, no where in the summary does it state it's not the full novel except for the short run time.

For the chapter I did get, I enjoyed.

I felt betrayed by the TV show

I really like the narrator & this gives more background into Villanelle’s life. It’s only 3 chapters (short and sweet)!
