Matt Helm is as credible a man of violence as has ever figured in the fiction of intrigue…a tense and often cruel story.
Donald Hamilton (1916-2006) was an American author who wrote novels and short stories, as well as non-fiction about the outdoors. He is known best for his spy fiction, particularly for the long-running Matt Helm series, of which The Silencers is the fourth.
Here, Helm’s mission is simple: an agent in Mexico needs to be extracted from a potentially serious situation. When the agent is killed before Helm can get to her, Helm must rescue the agent’s sister, Gail—a woman almost as tough as he is.
