"I can't kill you. If I do, Mac will send out the executioners, the termination squads..." When the big man in Washington assigned Matt Helm to ride shotgun on a top secret mission in Norway, Helm wanted to know why. But this was a need-to-know deal, at least until his partner - a woman posing as his mistress - was killed. Now Helm is mad, mad enough to blow the operation sky high. PRAISE FOR DONALD HAMILTON "The top-ranking American secret agent fare. Good writing, slick plotting and stimulating characters." BOOK WEEK "Helm is a genuinely tough and tough-minded protagonist." NEW YORK TIMES "Fast, tightly written, brutal, and very good..." MILWAUKEE JOURNAL
