H for Hassassin

Posting the A-Z of Dan Brown's books through his words, characters, places and more. Welcome to the A-Z April 2015 challenge...

H is for Hassassin

"They were renowned not only for their brutal killings, but also for celebrating their slayings by plunging themselves into drug-induced stupors. Their drug of choice was a potent intoxicant they called hashish.
As their notoriety spread, these lethal men became known by a single word - Hassassin - literally, 'the followers of hashish.'

As the Hassassin stood there savoring his prize, he ignored the throb in his arm . . . 
Gazing down at his incapacitated prisoner, the Hassassin visualized what lay ahead. He ran a palm up beneath her shirt. Her breasts felt perfect beneath her bra. Yes, he smiled. You are more than worthy. Fighting the urge to take her right there, he closed the door and drove off into the night."

- from Angels and Demons, chapters 5 and 95

Hashish - not to be confused with chocolate!
