"Libraries are filled with books on the Assassins, their history, exploits, and even modern video gamers’ infatuation with the ancient cult. However, there remains little discussed on the particular skill sets of an assassin – the modern terrorist, hired killer, or transnational criminal that you are most likely to encounter within the early decades of the 21st century..."

"In Hollywood, your typical 'assassin' represents a breathtakingly beautiful woman or, perhaps, a beefed-up hunk with just enough facial hair to drive women crazy. This violates the first law of covert warfare: do not call unnecessary attention to yourself..."
