The basis of BBC America's April 2018 release "Killing
Eve," starring Sandra Oh--A stylish game of spy vs. spy
played by Villanelle, a peerless international assassin, and
Eve, the fiercely intelligent MI6 analyst whose mission is
to take her out
Villanelle (a codename, of course) is one of the world's
most skilled assassins. A catlike psychopath whose love for
the creature comforts of her luxurious lifestyle is second
only to her love of the game, she specializes in murdering
the world's richest and most powerful. But when she murders
an influential Russian politician, she draws a relentless
foe to her tail.
Eve Polastri (not a codename) 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. Eve, whose quiet and otherwise
unextraordinary life belies her quick wit and keen
intellect, accepts the mission.
The ensuing chase will lead them on a trail around the
world, intersecting with corrupt governments and powerful
criminal organizations, all leading towards a final
confrontation from which neither will emerge unscathed.
Codename Villanelle is a sleek, fast-paced
international thriller from an exciting new voice in fiction.
