书名:Codename Villanelle
豆瓣评分: 5.5


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.


Luke Jennings is the author of the memoir Blood Knots, short-listed for the Samuel Johnson and William Hill prizes, and of several novels, including the Booker Prize-nominated Atlantic. As a journalist he has written for The Observer, Vanity Fair, the New Yorker and Time.


@ neonmoon 为啥都说就三十来页,我的咋100多页 @ Kreuzberg Name dropping式写作,不值一读,幸好电视剧不像原作 @ 大叉明明很可爱 看了三分之一吧,真是没什么意思。 @ 一横 失望了,不过不充了V的背景也是不错的吧……还是剧好看!!! @ 提奥 第一部其实很短只有三十页,作者平铺直叙,比剧集少了一些神秘感。Villanelle的过去和剧里设定有一些关键的不同之处,书里的更make sense但同时又不够有趣。 @ 平齐俊 兴致勃勃地找了原著来看,大失所望。充斥着俗套又中二的情节和男性意淫,电视剧能改编得那么清新脱俗也是不容易。 @ AskLan 菲比好强啊..改编的剧本比原著好太多了 @ dots- 怀着激动的心买下来,带着遗憾的心放角落…作为差旅读物看也很无聊 @ TBreezy 菲编真是点石成金,原著普普通通,就当练英语了←_← @ 仓 书里的V有点单薄了,还好E丰富了一些。第一部也太短了吧,才讲了S1的前两集…
