The Betrayers is the 10th installment in Donald Hamilton's iconic and thrilling Matt Helm series, which has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
Far out in the Pacific, among the sunny islands of Hawaii, a dark, venomous plot is engineered by a rogue agent, an angel-faced man called the Monk, who has a special fondness for high explosives. His target is an American troopship with 3,000 US soldiers scheduled to blow sky high - unless Matt Helm can stop him. But first Helm has to trust the beautiful stranger who claims to be his sister-in-law and insists that his former "wife" had just willed him half a million dollars.

actually a helm novel where the woman lives,and another whose body is never found! helm is getting soft! but really compared to the ambushers any helm novel would be 4&1\2 🌟! Bloom 😢 not directing, but still the show goes on! and well!
I enjoy spy, military, psychological, technical and fiction based in reality and science. I really value intimate, thorough writing.
Possibly. The narrator is just excellent.
Matt. His attitude toward his work makes him likeable for me.
His voice and the way he reads it adds several layers to the story. He always FEELS like Matt Helm without trying too hard.
One character's death and the way Matt responded in the situation. It was written very abruptly and harshly like it woudlve happened it real life. I loved it. Painted such a vivid picture with such few words.
All the things ive come to love about Helm's adventures is present in this book. The conflicts, the dialogue, the mystery, the dry heroism... just.... excellent excellent excellent.
