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.
