A catlike psychopath with a love for luxury, Villanelle specializes in murdering the world's richest and most powerful, but when she bumps off an influential Russian politician, she draws a relentless foe to her tail. Quiet and quick-witted, Eve Polastri is a former MI6 operative hired by the national security services for a singular task: to find and capture or kill the assassin responsible, and those who have aided her. In this thriller—the basis for the Golden Globe-winning BBC series Killing Eve—the ensuing chase will lead Eve on a trail around the world, clashing with corrupt governments and powerful criminal organizations, all leading towards a final confrontation from which neither she nor Villanelle will emerge unscathed.
