    • Abstract:
      Summary: "In Venice, where she's just completed a routine assassination, Villanelle receives a late-night call. Eve has discovered that a senior intelligence officer is in the pay of the Twelve-the secretive and subversive organization that employs Villanelle-and she 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. The action moves from Europe to Russia, and to a shattering face-to-face confrontation, as Eve finally unwraps the enigma of her adversary's true identity and intentions".-- Provided by publisher.

Working for a covert British task force after losing her job at MI6, Eve Polastri identifies and confronts an MI5 director who has been hiding signs of great wealth. Fearing that his treason will be revealed, he admits to working for a shadowy international organization, the Twelve, which plans to remake society; then he disappears and is believed to have been killed, Eve surmises, by the assassin known as Villanelle. So Eve goes after Villanelle (Russian Oxana Vorontsova, who has taken the code name of her favorite scent), as the obsessive relationship between the two women deepens. Nonstop action moves between London, Venice, Paris, Moscow, and the Swiss Alps, as the two women track each other, and amoral Villanelle continues her murderous ways. Terrified by events in Moscow, Eve opts to give up the spy business for a normal life with husband Niko but instead finds herself facing a dreadful decision in a face-to-face meeting with Villanelle. Jennings provides plenty of spycraft and scenic and sensual atmosphere laced with betrayal in this adrenaline-fueled sequel to Killing Eve: Codename Villanelle (2018), the book that spawned the BBC America series.

PW Reviews 2019 January #1

Jennings's pallid second thriller featuring British intelligence agent Eve Polastri and her arch-nemesis, Villanelle (after 2018's Codename Villanelle), lacks the appeal of the BBC America TV series Killing Eve based on the earlier book. Eve once worked for MI5, where she identified a pattern to assassinations committed by a woman who had targeted "prominent figures in politics and organized crime." Her efforts to prevent another murder were blocked by a superior, Dennis Cradle, and led to her dismissal. Eve finds a place with MI6, and tricks the traitorous Cradle into a meeting, where she offers him a deal in exchange for information about those who persuaded him to work for Russian interests. Cradle, with the help of Villanelle, turns the tables on Eve, setting off a predictable cat-and-mouse game. Eve gets on the trail of a shadowy Russian cabal, but the focus, again, is on her love-hate relationship with her rival. Anyone familiar with standard genre tropes, such as the spy's significant other who demands a choice between work and family, will find them in droves. Still, many fans of the TV series will want to check this one out. Agent: Jason Bartholomew, BKS Agency (U.K.). (Mar.)
