John Drake is assigned to thwart an assassination attempt, and hopefully discourage the perpetrators from any further attempts in the future. He passes himself off as a skilled professional assassin; the group planning the attack takes notice and hires him to do the job. However, his attempts at sabotaging their plan don't go unnoticed.

"The Hired Assassin" starts off very well and together with a strong ending make for an excellent installment of "Danger Man"--perhaps the best. It begins in some Latin American nation. Drake is avoiding the cops in a night club and one of the workers hides him. However, after the police leave, you realize that it was all a put-on--the police and Drake are working together in order to help him make contact with the rebels. This is because the rebels are very cut-throat and are planning on assassinating the president of this nation. And, since these folks think that Drake is a world-famous assassin, they naturally want him to join in with their conspiracy. How does Drake manage to NOT kill the man AND capture these thugs? See the show.
I liked the set-up for this show as well as the ending. For once, Drake is shot--adding a bit of realism. There really isn't much NOT to like about this one.
