For thousands of years Hypnotic Assassins have existed to help free the people. Around 4,500 years ago they were known as ‘Assassins of the Light’, 2,000 years ago this changed to ‘Followers of the Light’. Hypnotic Assassins stood for freedom and peace until almost all being wiped out in 1938 when one assassin became hungry for power and domination and decided all the other assassins must die.
Since that time very few Hypnotic Assassins remain, yet they continue to help to free the people and correct injustice. Sam Carter is one such assassin. Sam lives a quiet life four hours from the great City of London in a small boxy flat. Being a Hypnotic Assassin this is all he needs.
Every day when Sam isn’t on a mission he walks the one mile journey into his local town to sit at the same seat in the Marlborough Café for 90 minutes, reading minds and drinking tea, where one day he picks up a mission to assassinate Michael Rawlins, CEO of SiLo, a Nuclear Fusion research company who is planning on selling a nuclear weapon and advanced nuclear technology to someone in Europe.
This starts out to be a straight forward and simple mission. But Sam’s life end’s up on the line, with Sam needing to use all his hypnotic skills just to survive.
