Publisher's Summary

The second installment in the legendary Matt Helm thrillers.
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.

Incredible

What made the experience of listening to The Wrecking Crew the most enjoyable?

A combination of the Narrator and how well the character Matt Helm is written.


What did you like best about this story?

How clever, cold and pragmatic Matt is while still being a human believable character. He doesn't have any obligatory humanizing traits yet never feels like a superhero.


Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Other Matt Helm novels. Just as amazing.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It started off a little spread out. Then it was a litttttleee hard to follow. However when it all started coming together, near the last third, I just couldn't stop listening.


Any additional comments?

Matt is truly a professional and a joy to ride along with. The well illustrated tension makes his skill much more respectable. As a Clancy fan, Matt Helm is not quite as technical as I like BUT it makes up for it with soul and interesting yet believable characters.
