Codename Villanelle (Villanelle #1) by Luke Jennings

I decided to read this after watching the first two episodes of BBC's Killing Eve and was not disappointed.
In fact, Jennings' descriptions and obvious knowledge of what he's writing give a more realistic feel to the story than the show's visuals have managed to do. 
Jennings has a true gift for descriptive prose, you can't help but see in your mind's eye everything he writes, and he really nails the European atmosphere of the surroundings in the book. 
I loved Villanelle (as much as you can love a sociopathic assassin) and from her backstory to her training nothing was skipped, yet it was always engaging. 

I definitely recommend this!
