Synopsis Edit

Eve is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve continues to follow these two women, equally obsessed with each other, as they go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse. Based on the Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings.
