Agent 47 might be the best assassin the Agency has ever had, but he'll need all of his skill, cunning, and ruthlessness if he is to survive his toughest assignment yet. Since the devastating conclusion of Hitman: Blood Money, Agent 47 has been MIA. Now fans awaiting the return of the blockbuster video-game and film phenomenon can pinpoint the location of the world's most brutal and effective killer-for-hire before he re-emerges in Hitman: Absolution. When the Agency lures him back with a mission that will require every last ounce of his stealth, strength, and undercover tactics, they grossly underestimate the silent assassin's own agenda. Because this time, Agent 47 isn't just going to bite the hand that feeds him ...he's going to tear it off and annihilate anyone who stands in his way.
