The Devastators is the ninth installment in Donald Hamilton's iconic and thrilling Matt Helm series, which has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
On a bleak and lonely heath in Northern Scotland, the body of an agent sent to complete a tricky mission is recovered. He had died of bubonic plague. It's up to Matt Helm to take it from there. Somewhere among the desolate Scottish moors is a half-crazed scientific genius who could devastate entire populations with one hideous, raging plague. It is Helm's job to get him...with the help of a beautiful American operative who is supposed to be his wife and a beautiful Russian operative who makes it clear she is his deadly enemy.

I enjoy spy, military, psychological, technical and fiction based in reality and science. I really value intimate, thorough writing.
yes but i would suggest starting from the first book, This one is alot better if you "know" Matt.
How unforgiving the situations are in these books. There's really no place for heart here. I loved it.
Matt. Always Matt. He's perfect.
Absolutely. Its fast enough to keep you interested and get away from any dull parts quickly .
Not quite as captivating on the whole as some of the other stories but, it has some really amazing moments. It shines in its idiosyncrasies .
