- Title Killing Eve: Die For Me
- Author Luke Jennings
- Year 2020
- Genre Thriller
On the run together, Eve Polastri and the psychopathic Villanelle take refuge in the underworld of St Petersburg. But the Twelve are closing in, as are the Russian security services. As the chess-game intensifies, and the grip of winter tightens, the couple are drawn into a nightmare realm of conspiracy and murder. Die For Me is a fast-paced, sophisticated thriller but also a poignant tale of love and erotic obsession. As the action races towards its shattering conclusion, can Eve and Villanelle learn to fully trust each other or will their differences destroy them?
I just found this one really readable, once I started it was so hard to put it down. Just like with the previous two, it can be a bit graphic in places but overall a great story. I couldn’t see how there was going to be a happy ending, and there almost wasn’t, but in the end everything worked out very well.
One thing Jennings does with great skill is build the tension and the drama, it really does live up to its category of thriller, but underneath it all, it’s also a love story. Very well done.
