Arthur Bishop is the man. Working for a covert government(?) agency, Bishop is tasked with the hardest of the hits that come across their plate and most of the time he has to make things look natural. Hit after hit goes off without a hitch, but when he is asked to take out his mentor/contact with the agency, Harry McKenna, for being a mole, Arthur, is put into a very tight spot. Bishop respectfully completes his task, but when McKenna’s son, Steve, comes to Bishop to learn his ways Bishop reluctantly decides to take him up on the request. The two train and carry out a couple of hits along the way before the South African conspiracy that brought down Harry rears its ugly head again.

Betty Anne, believing profusely in her brother’s innocence, sets down a path to try and get his name cleared and the journey will take her places she never thought possible for herself.
