My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Despite having a gigantic TBR mountain, I by-passed them all and started reading No Tomorrow as soon as I had finished reading Codename Villanelle.
The story continued at the same frantic pace. That continued, with plenty of shocking surprises, right up to the end of the second, and final, book in the series. Had there been a third volume of Villanelle, I would have moved on to that. Instead, it is left to the reader’s imagination to continue the story.
This is tremendous writing and exciting reading.
I can’t say too much about the vicious and, seemingly, heartless Villanelle or her pursuer, Eve, without giving away spoilers. There is plenty of violence and some very clever and cunning ways in which she kills her victims.
You would normally feel revulsion for a protagonist who is a serial killer, but I really like, or even, love her. Most of her victims are real baddies who probably deserve their fate. The few who are not, simply get themselves in the way of a ruthless killer or are caught in the wrong circumstances.
This is a rip-roaring thriller of a read and I thoroughly recommend it.
