The Ninja Programme's own former sensei, the Jonin, has assembled a conspiratorial circle of enigmatic enemies -- the Dying One, Kostiy the Deathless, Linton March, and The United's Ultimo -- for a purpose so sinister that even Ninjak can't risk engaging them alone.

But now...an unknown enemy is hunting and killing members of The Ninja Programe one by one -- and Ninjak is next on the list.
