The Betrayers
by Donald Hamilton

The 10th novel told by assassin, Matt Helm. He is assigned to kill a rogue American agent in Hawaii who is called the Monk and, if possible, find out what the Monk was up to. The plot involves a beautiful blonde and a beautiful brunette both of whom throw themselves at Helm and also double-cross him. The story ties in to the previous novel in that the women who played his wife and died in that story named Helm as the beneficiary of her million dollar estate.

This may be the best written Helm novel so far.

Year Read: 2005
