Imagine sitting at home one night when some mysterious men arrive and announce they have come for the boy.  You are 11 years old and have absolutely no clue what is going on.  But your instincts take over and you run for your life.  Your parents are taken and you must keep hidden so they don't get you too.  What would you do?  This is the plight that Jimmy Coates finds himself in.  And then he finds out why the men are after him.  He is an experiment.  He is only partly human.  The other part of him is a genetically altered assassin!  He now must run or be used by the mysterious group as a trained assassin.
