The first installment in the legendary Matt Helm thrillers
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.
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.

Not the Matt Helm you're thinking ...
Very good thriller.
Yep. Loved Helm's being torn between two worlds. I enjoyed the grittiness of the writing; so far from the Hollywood Dean Martin movies as you can imagine.
Top of his game. He's always amazing. Could read my grocery list.
Book is too short! I'm on to the next in the series.
