In a hotel room in Venice, where she's just completed a routine assassination, Villanelle receives a late-night call. Eve Polastri has discovered that a senior MI5 officer is in the pay of the Twelve, and 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, and when the action moves from the high passes of the Tyrol to the heart of Russia, Eve finally begins to unwrap the enigma of her adversary's true identity.
I remember reading the previous Villanelle book and being a bit annoyed at the cliffhanger ending - or not so much a cliffhanger as one that just stopped. I thought I would pick up the next book quite quickly but it’s taken me a while to get round to it. So it took me a while to get back into it and remind myself what had happened in the book and what I’d seen on TV.
But once I was in the zone again, it was great. Full of action, the great bizarre vulnerableness that everyone’s favourite assassin has. And that the two protagonists ended up together in circumstances that had their own cliffhanger ending. So this time, I really will read the next book, the final in the trilogy, with more timeliness.
