"Fans of Stieg Larsson will adore both the steely, resourceful Villanelle and the determined Eve. This finely tuned, knife-edge thriller with two equally unflinching women refuses to sacrifice an ounce of adrenaline while allowing the characters room for depth and complexity. Highly recommended."—Library Journal (starred review)
"Like Ian Fleming, Jennings is at once tongue-in-cheek and serious. . . . His version of 007 is great fun."—Sunday Times (UK)
"A memorable protagonist . . . There is an extra sheen of glamor that makes Villanelle more a James Bond than a mere killer."—The Daily Mail (UK)
"Exciting and fun."—Daily Express (UK)
"Gloriously exciting... a short howitzer of a novel... Jennings writes at supersonic speed, packing in an impressive number of violent set pieces and sex scenes. The breakneck pace is undeniably addictive, but he also displays an offbeat sense of humor."—Metro (UK)
"Detailed portrayals of Villanelle's globe-hopping hits and Eva's strategic hunt create strong suspense... A promising series setup."—Booklist
"It's bloody but also bloody marvelous, a grand female change from spy-chase standards like James Bond or Kingsman. Jennings provides irony, pathos and plenty of surprises along with deep-insider details about Russian prisons, French fashion and British intelligence."—Washington Post
"thrills galore."—Shelf Awareness
