Eve's life as a spy is not adding up to what she had hoped it would be when she started. She is a bored, very smart, desk-bound MI5 security officer. Villanelle is a very talented killer, mercurial in mood, who clings to the luxuries of her job. Eve and Villanelle go head-to-head in a fierce game of cat and mouse, each woman equally obsessed with the other as Eve is tasked with hunting down the psychopathic assassin. Sarah Barnett, BBCA president, says, "`Killing Eve' stands out in a sea of scripted stories as refreshingly entertaining and great fun."
