I'd already started on this heavy-menace routine and it was too late to switch to another approach. Matt Helm is puzzled. He's been sent to Mexico to investigate the sighting of a flying saucer, but Helm doesn't believe in little green men. Then his Russian opposite number is shot in her hotel, but who did it? And why are the Mexican cops acting so tough?

His novels consist mostly of paperback originals, principally spy fiction, but also crime fiction and westerns, such as The Big Country. He is best known for his long-running Matt Helm series (1960-1993), which chronicles the adventures of an undercover in working for a secret American government agency.

And underneath the frosting is Agent Eric versus Santa Claus (aka Nicholas). My old books are falling apart due to age and being read multiple times. Having new printings is nice.

Donald Hamilton The Menacers. 1. I ALWAYS FEEL A little bad about smuggling a firearm through Mexican customs. The boys in khaki make their inspection so nice and casual you feel you're taking advantage of their courtesy. Of course, if you're found in their country later with an unregistered gun, particularly a revolver or pistol, and most particularly a bi. 5 auto-the Mexican Army caliber-they'll throw you in jail and lose the key, but that's a chance you take in a good many countries with much less violent histories than Mexico.

An agent like Matt Helm might be a nice man to live with, for a while - but he's not the kind a woman would want to marry

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. An agent like Matt Helm might be a nice man to live with, for a while - but he's not the kind a woman would want to marry. Unless, perhaps, the marriage was part of an ingenious cover.

Why, he is the communist menace against whom we, as Mr. Leonard's operatives, have been struggling. There had to be some obvious and conspicuous adversary, did there not? If there had been no visible enemy, even Mr. Leonard, stupid as he is, might eventually have begun to wonder suspiciously why things were forever going wrong with his brilliant plans.

I recommend the entire Matt Helm Series.

The most dangerous man alive. When he fights he fights to kill. No middle ground is considered. Although if female he may take the time for a little romance first. Witty and dangerous seem to make an effective assassin.

This is another classic in the Matt Helm Series. It is a great read in the spy genre. I think it is better than the James Bond series. Great book!
Skiletus
Those who know super spy Matt Helm only through the cinematic buffoonery of Dean Martin really do not know Matt Helm at all. As written by Donald Hamilton, Matt Helm is a nice guy who kills people for a living, not maliciously or through any hatred, but coolly, efficiently and without hesitation, except when he doesn't kill at all, but even that choice is made because it furthers his purpose or helps him to complete his assigned task, not because of any weakness or sentimentality.

In "The Menacers," 11th book in the series, Matt is sent to investigate a flying saucer attack which resulted in a burning boat, five dead people and a lone survivor with a fantastic story to tell that could embarrass the United States. The assignment may involve the fantastic and unbelievable, but not of that is of any interest to Helm. His only concern is to escort the witness to Los Alamos...or to kill her if he cannot. Along with flying saucers on the attack, we have also communist agents, turncoats, bureaucratic knuckleheads, inept American spies and the Mexican Secret Service.

Nowadays, communist agents are the baddies of another age and flying saucers have morphed into slick documentaries on the History Channel (which never uses the term "flying saucers"), but back when this novel was published (1968), but were front and center in the news and were the focus of intense cultural paranoia. The country was then experiencing violent riots often coordinated by Soviet agents as well as a UFO "flap," when flying saucer sightings were reported on the nightly news and scattered across the pages of "Life" magazine. While the villains of the book have gone the way of the dodo and the plot device has lost much of its lurid nature, the power of Hamilton's storytelling has lost none of its power or immediacy. Matt Helm remains a believable action figure, alternately hard-bitten and introspective, and well worth following from start to finish.

This books is an old spy novel from the James Bond era of the 60's
which actually talks about UFOs in an intelligent way.
Nobody believed the governments reports on them.
Nobody does to this day...
Here we have a Soviet plot designed to make America look bad in
Mexico of all places. With hippies all around and
Mexico being the drug smuggling capitol of the time
stories of flying saucers just weren't getting a lot of play
compared to the Beatles Yellow Submarine.
The Matt Helm series was turned into several movies in this era as well.
Here we have him wondering around Mexico investigating phony -baloney
UFO stories with his latest girl friend.
The ending is somewhat strange,but mostly not very idealistic.
I kind of enjoyed the straight talk on UFOs in such an unexpected
place.
