For thousands of years Hypnotic Assassins have existed to help free the people. 4500 years ago they were known as ‘Assassins of the Light’, 2000 years ago this changed to ‘Followers of the Light’. They have always stood for freedom & peace. In 1938 they were almost all wiped out when an assassin became hungry for power & domination.
Since then few Hypnotic Assassins remain. Sam Carter is one such assassin. Sam lives a quiet life in a small boxy flat, being a Hypnotic Assassin this is all he needs. Every day when Sam isn’t on a mission he sits at the same seat in the Marlborough Café for 90 minutes, reading minds and drinking tea.

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.
