    1. Ths is a collection of 4 kindle single stories about Oxana Vorontsova, a young woman who kills the men responsible for the death of her father. This lands her in prison, where she is approached with a deal. Oxana becomes erased with the cover story that she dies, and she acquires a whole new persona, Villanelle, and trained to become an extraordinary assassin in strong echoes of Nikita. Konstantin is the representative of the 12 powerful men who sanction Villanelle's hits. The stories are interc [...]

    2. This is a very enjoyable load of old hokum. It could be utterly dreadful – a ruthless, beautiful highly trained female assassin (the eponymous Villanelle) working for a shadowy group of ultra-rich people protecting their own interests isn't exactly a fresh-sounding set-up - but it's well done and actually very entertaining.I've largely summarized the plot in the last sentence, but we also meet a British intelligence operative whose mission it is to catch and kill Villanelle. She is a rather en [...]

    3. Good introduction to this special agent, the female assassin who is Villanelle. Her stories were originally introduced through Kindle Singles. In Codename Villanelle we learn of her background and how she was 'chosen' to be a hit woman in a sinister organisation that has links across many governments but ultimately takes out contracts on individuals who are not in the common interest of a balance of power.The young woman who was recruited rather than face a time in prison becomes their agent, he [...]

    4. Superb – read it!Oxana Vorontsova has had a tough upbringing and then her father is murdered. She avenges him and then apparently commits suicide in prison only to be reborn as Villanelle. Villanelle has been taken in hand by Konstantin who puts her through several gruelling regimes to toughen her up and to turn her into a cold, dispassionate killer for hire – the ideal assassin. Eva Polastri is a section leader at MI5. Her path crosses that of Villanelle when a high-profile Russian is murde [...]

    5. good plotfast paced intrigue that will hold your interest.excellent build-up to an expected conclusion.i wish it was a longer story!
