Publisher's Summary

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.

    "cold war at it's coldest"

    with the loss of the thresher and the scorpion nuclear subs, (did the Russians sink them? modern findings and under water photos say not),it's no wonder LBJ was reading Matt Helm!we had the big bangs with atom\hydrogen bombs,so the next weapon of mass death ,germ warfare! anyone with abrain had to be seriously concerned about this, especially since the children crossing the border from communist Vietnam were riddled with malaria, typhoid, and other life threatening illnesses,(LBJ Miller center phone calls recorded in real time make perfectly clear), nothing against people, but is open border policy really good and safe, for us, for the "immigrants" ,at least Johnson could give medical care to HUMAN BEINGS, instead of "undocumented immigrants "!! but now, no worries, give America to communist china, and for a profit!! Roosevelt wanted these people shot for economic sedition, but that's simply not profitable!!! i 💘 vadya and am so glad she returns, im sure she somehow escapes what's going to happen to her,and Helm made a mistake!!! she's his soul mate!! as usual am proud that the wrecking crew (Bloom, Rudnicki etc...)have done an outstanding job, yet again!! pip, pip, cheerio, old chap!!(quite contagious, don't you know?)

    I enjoy spy, military, psychological, technical and fiction based in reality and science. I really value intimate, thorough writing.

    "Good just not as enthralling as some of the others"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes but i would suggest starting from the first book, This one is alot better if you "know" Matt.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    How unforgiving the situations are in these books. There's really no place for heart here. I loved it.


    Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki – was your favorite?

    Matt. Always Matt. He's perfect.


    Was The Devastators worth the listening time?

    Absolutely. Its fast enough to keep you interested and get away from any dull parts quickly .


    Any additional comments?

    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 .
