Publisher's Summary

“I can’t kill you. If I do, Mac will send out the executioners, the termination squads....”

When the big man in Washington assigned Matt Helm to ride shotgun on a top-secret mission in Norway, Helm wanted to know why. But this was a need-to-know deal, at least until his partner - a woman posing as his mistress - was killed. Now Helm is mad - mad enough to blow the operation sky high.

Great Story -- Weak Performance

I've listened to all books in this series at least once and believe Stefan Rudnicki is a great voice for Mr. Matthew Helm; however, this particular performance was not his best. I can only imagine there was a significant gap between performances as his voices slip in a number of places, particularly Mack. It detracts slightly from the excellent story since his usual reliable characterizations help distinguish characters better than in this effort.

Don't let that dissuade you since this is a really, really good story. As good of a mystery as these thrillers/adventure yarns provide. It's a story in which Matt has to figure out what his actual assignment is as he's given few details, and what he deduces causes him to distrust what he's been told. The setting returns to Norway (there was a previous book set in a similar area) and some good historical elements relating to World War II.

Overall a great story marred by an inconsistent performance. I hope the next installment will return Mr. Rudnicki back to form.
