The Assassins is a terrorist group in The Hardy Boys Casefiles series of books. Calling themselves simply 'the Assassins', these terrorists-for-hire are the primary adversaries of the Hardy Boys and The Network in the Casefiles series. The Assassins appear to have originated in the 13th or 14th century, although no one knows for sure.[1]

All Assassins have a hollow tooth to hold a cyanide capsule, and agents have standing orders to die rather than be captured. Although when captured most Assassins do use the capsule, some of the higher ranks in the organization are not so quick to do so.

Frank and Joe fight the Assassins not only because they are dangerous to the world, but because they are the group responsible for the death of Joe's girlfriend, Iola Morton.
