Liking the Series

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.

Loved this second chapter of the books. Great performance and pace. Looking for more! Villanelle is my new favourite assassin.

Very sketchy

Reads like an outline for something larger in development. The BBC series is much more satisfying, complete and with jaw dropping moments. I'm going to binge re-watch the series recorded on my DVR and it's free w/ visuals! Narrator is the best thing about it.
