S02E13. The Assassin
Original Broadcast Date: 20 January 1990


Phelps approaches a woman (Julia Curran?) dressed in a wild west cowboy outfit at a carnival or amusement park shooting gallery.

Phelps: They say there's nothing simpler than shooting a sitting duck.

Woman: It's not as easy as it looks. Knock down any four and win a real trophy.

Phelps: I'm aiming for a prize of a different kind.

Woman: Why don't you try that ride over there?

Phelps goes into a ride shaped like a space ship in a nearby building which is closed for repairs. He finds the player on one of the seats inside the ride.

Good morning, Jim. During the past year, there has been a succession of high-level assassinations around the world. In each case, the assassin has been someone placed close to the victim: adviser, private secretary, government official. Not one of these assassins has been interrogated because none has been captured alive. All have died immediately after the killings. The similarities between these events lead us to believe that one sinister force may be behind them all. If this is so, then the world is now at the mercy of a killing technique with the power to bypass even the tightest security measures now protecting heads of state. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to uncover this deadly operation and put an end to it. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This disc will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.

Phelps closes the player and leaves. Smoke billows from the machine.
