The General

The PrisonerWhen a new speed-learning lecture series takes the Village by storm, Number Six is immediately suspicious, and finds a like-minded ally in Number 12. Their skepticism is quickly proven to be correct when they learn that the speed-learning device uses subliminal messages – and that the hidden masterminds of the Village, not the Professor, control what information is subliminally fed to the population. Number Six discovers that the enigmatic General is behind the whole endeavour…but it may cost him dearly to find out any more than that.
