Written as a fictional autobiography, in ‘Autobiography of an Assassin - The Family’, we are introduced to those unique individuals who make up the ‘Family’ - a collective of assassins and killers! The prequel, ‘The Here and the Now’, demonstrated the typical sheer conceited arrogance, which frequently makes up the character trait of a sociopath. Martin, the main character, went to great lengths to describe in detail, and mind numbing minutiae, the tools of his trade; his expertise and experience; and his vast network of clients and associates. Like all sociopaths and psychopaths, he his typically showing off – he is demonstrating how superior he is to the common man. Then, we got to see snippets of narrative, sometimes in graphic detail, which gradually extended his story. And, in the end, we got to see the real man behind the boasting mask of conceitedness. In the sequel, ‘The Family’, we are introduced to those who make up the ‘Family’ ... a diversity of individuals – some ‘damaged’, some not. In individual cameos, we get to meet them, a multiplicity of diverse characters. From the soft charismatic Irish charm of Patrick, to the steely fixed persona of Maaka - from the flamboyant John-Luke, to the studious academic Carl - from the bubbly Nicky, to the cold clinical Karen. They all have one thing in common. Like the rest of the Family - they are all killers! The Family, and their individual stories, are narrated sometimes in such a literal explicit manner, that some may find distressing and upsetting. But that is the nature of the animal ... that is the nature of man – and that is the nature of the Family. Now the story begins!
Martin is an assassin – or that is how he likes to think of himself. In reality, beneath a seemingly pleasant and unpretentious facade, lurks a ruthless predator ... a narcissistic sociopath! He killed his very first victim when he had only just turned sixteen. Fleeing to Belgium, he had been recruited into a mercenary organisation, more commonly known as ‘La Légion’ Given a new identity, he had been taken to Morocco to undergo intensive training ... training that had been frequently brutal and bestial. Six months later, he would emerge from the remote foothills of the Atlas Mountains a highly trained, widely experienced and psychologically conditioned killer. In Vietnam, he had been recruited into ‘Section 9’, a covert organisation within the British Secret Intelligence Service. They had wanted Martin to join them as a freelance field operative – an assassin! But fate was to intervene. On arriving back in London, Martin had discovered feelings and emotions that he had never ever experienced before – he had discovered love and affection. With a new love in his life, had come new sense of purpose, a new sense of direction – and a change of heart. True love had given him compassion and humanity. But nothing lasts forever, and after five short years of marital bliss, tragedy had cruelly struck – a tragedy that had destroyed his life and had taken away his very soul. It was then that an assassin was truly born. And, overnight Martin had become a ruthless heartless killer ... attracting similarly motivated sociopaths to his ‘Family’, and the growing Family business – the business of killing! During the last fifty years, Martin has killed all manner of people - and now he has decided to write his autobiography. The Here and the Now is the first part of that autobiography.
