Villanelle is the ultimate assassin. Beautiful and heartless, she's been trained to be the best. Her latest target is a firebrand Russian leader whose extreme political theories threaten to unleash global conflict.
But lying in wait for Villanelle is intelligence officer Eve Polastri. A hunter by nature, fiercely clever, Eve is ready to pursue her adversary wherever the search leads her. And so starts a deadly game between two brilliant and determined female protagonists....
The first novella in the series covered her background and the factors that made Villanelle who she was. In this one she finishes up one case and then focuses on the plans to assassinate a Russian leader and the efforts of Interpol to prevent it. Agent Eve Polastri is foreshadowed as the law enforcement equivalent of Villanelle and I suspect that future books will build on the rivalry between the Alpha females. This series could be a collection of weak cliches but thus far it has worked; I look forward to the next book.
