    Matt Helm, one-time special agent for the American government during the Second World War, has left behind his violent past to raise a family in Santa Fe, New Mexico. When a former colleague turns rogue and kidnaps his daughter, Helm is forced to return to his former life as a deadly and relentless assassin.

    Not the Matt Helm you're thinking ...

    Very good thriller.

    Matt Helm, code name Eric, has been recently reactivated as an operative for a secret American government organization after 15 years as a sedentary photographer and family man in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In his first assignment after returning to the service, he is sent to Sweden to eliminate Caselius, a long-time enemy agent. In order to do so, he must leave a trail of bodies in his wake.

    Great series.

    I absolutely love these stories. Much better then 007 in my opinion, more authentic and personal.

    A year after having been reactivated as a spy, Matt Helm receives a message from his ex-wife asking for his aid. The threat is an enemy agent named Martel, disguised as a mob hit man. To protect his family, Helm must remove the threat before his own children pay the ultimate price. Originally released in the era of the James Bond novels, the Matt Helm novels were considered grittier and more realistic than Bond, garnering them critical praise and ardent fans.

    greatest spy novels ever written superb actor

    Matt Helm, code name Eric, is sent to extract a female agent working as a stripper in a bar in Mexico. When she is killed before Helm can complete his mission, he finds himself teamed up with the woman's sister as he fights to save the lives of a group of scientists and American officials. Originally released in the era of the James Bond novels, the Matt Helm novels were considered grittier and more realistic than Bond, garnering them critical praise and an ardent audience.

    Great just not my favorite in the Matt Helm series

    The verbal conflicts/dances. I love the mental chess games of some of the conversations in the book.

    Professional assassin and counteragent Matt Helm has been given a distasteful assignment. He is to disguise himself as gangster Jimmy "the Lash" Petroni and assault a fellow agent in order to help establish her cover in a top secret operation. But things don't quite go according to plan, and now Helm must take her place on a dangerous mission. Alone in Chesapeake Bay, pursued by his own government, Helm must carry out an assassination - before his employers catch up to him.

    My Least favorite of Matt Helm SO FAR.

    Near the bottom with Cardinal of the Kremlin. Its good. But none of the characters were interesting (except matt) and the tale itself just didnt grip ..Show More »

    A quiet mission of assassination is no sweat for legendary agent Matt Helm - until a shapely foreign agent he never got around to finishing off lures him into a strange trek in the wilds of Northern Mexico. And when a Russian missile is smuggled out of Cuba, it falls into the hands of a political fanatic much too close to home.

    leaves James Bond in the dust

    Rudnicki is such a convincing and entertaining actor

    An agent like Helm might be a nice man to live with for a while, but he's not the kind of guy a woman would marry - unless she has to in order to maintain an ingenious cover. The man whose daily bread is violence takes a most unlikely bride - just to ensure death doesn't part them.

    Not as tight as the other books. Still great.

    A Dangerous Game.

    It was not a peaceful way to die, but there was nothing Matt Helm could do for his fellow agent. He had found him in a Canadian motel room - his once-handsome face eaten away, corroded by acid. Scratch one agent. The women wouldn't be lining up for him now. But it created further problems. The most likely culprit was a woman Helm had orders to protect - no matter what the cost.

    Excellent. A high point in the series.

    I loved the situation Matt was in. He even makes a joke about how typical it is early on in the book. Things go completely side ways and stay that way..Show More »

    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.

    Good just not as enthralling as some of the others

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

    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.

    Another great Helm story.

    Possibly. The narrator is just excellent.
