A slick, action-packed tale, Assassin follows a disillusioned young Londoner living an unremarkable, unfulfilling and anonymous life.
This is before an enigmatic regular at his local pub drops an opportunity in his lap that changes his life forever - the opportunity to become a hired killer. Jumping at the chance, our protagonist soon finds himself thoroughly out of his depth, sinking into a dark underworld of gangs, guns, and dodgy dealings, all the while discovering that he has an undeniable talent for taking lives - that he enjoys it, even. However, as the bodies pile up, the mysterious behaviour of his shady employers begins to concern him, and he soon realises that something far more complicated and sinister than he ever imagined is going on.
Will he choose to get out before his crimes catch up with him? Or will he allow his new career to change the very fabric of who he is, transforming him into someone cold, methodical, brutal - a true assassin?
