Reviews

"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)
"Exciting and fun."--Daily Express (UK)
Praise for Codename Villanelle "What a sleek, sophisticated, fabulously entertaining tale! Codename Villanelle is a breathtaking ride through the cobblestone streets of Europe in the fastest of cars and driven by the most alluring, and dangerous, of drivers. Absolutely first rate!"--Christopher Reich, author of The Take
"Luke Jennings' novel--much like its eponymous antihero--is professional, efficient, sexy, sophisticated, and deadly. This is a beautifully written thriller that works on all levels."--Patrick Hoffman, author of Every Man a Menace
"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)
"Detailed portrayals of Villanelle's globe-hopping hits and Eva's strategic hunt create strong suspense... A promising series setup."--Booklist
"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)
"Superior prose and a cracker jack plot lift this exceptional spy thriller and series launch from Jennings...Readers will eagerly await the sequel."--Publisher's Weekly, starred review
"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
