This classic work is about a mysterious assassin with the codename Golgo 13 (derived from Golgotha, the hill on which Jesus Christ was crucified). Golgo uses a sniper rifle to take out people of various non-Japanese races (and often of international political importance). Each volume has complete stories so you don't miss anything by not reading from #1--you only get bits and pieces of Golgo's identity in each volume anyway. Sample stories:
#70: Nightmare--kills an Argentine traitor from the British-Argentine war Derby -- causes death of impure horse in 2,000 guinea derby, by order of QE2's underlings... Psychic Weapon -- kills Yuri Geller-like person who defects to the Soviets and apparently causes telehypnosis of nuclear-silo personnel.

#78: Soviet spy satellite with atomic reactor falls near Golgo 13's hideout in Montana so he must deal with all the spies who come to fetch it; Soviet ballerina plans defection to West but KGB hires Golgo to stop her; (2 more stories)

#81: stories about South Africa apartheid & heir to fortune of czar left in Western bank accounts.

#83: Ms. Florida's husband hires Golgo to prevent her from cheating on him; Francois Mitterand hires him to take out Syrian spy; prevents defection of Soviet journalist holding secrets about the Afghan war....

#85: mafia stuff; prevents Israeli spy from getting executed in Iraq; Hong Kong triad stuff.

The Professional was the name used in the translated anime version.
