Enthralling . . . deftly shaped towards an excellent denouement in which both women revolt against their male bosses and the organisations behind them - Sunday Times, Thriller of the MonthForget the overrated TV series, Luke Jennings's tales of Sapphic slapstick work better on the page and this sequel to Codename Villanelle ignores the events of Phoebe WallerBridge's adaptation. Like his remarkable crackpot assassin, Jennings goes his own sweet way. Once again the reader is treated to a banquet of minced spies. The echoes of Ian Fleming and John le Carre are deafening and the ensuing doublecrossing and switch-hitting outspoofs them both - Evening Standard
