Review #1

The Menacers audiobook free

Matt Helm is an agent for a super-secret agency that operates in the shadows and does the tough work no one wants to admit needs doing. Not only does he have a license to kill, but he knows intimately that feelings and emotions have no place in this business and if you are too cautious and too moralistic that agent you only wounded might come back up firing at you. This one involves UFOs and strange ray guns and other mysterious sightings. It involves another espionage agency out to do Helm wrong. It involves his early nemesis the gorgeous Nayda. It takes the reader deep into Mexico and into the Sea of Cortez. Gritty, fast paced, unsentimental, and simply a damn good read.

Review #2

The Menacers audiobook in series Matt Helm

Ahh, the wonders of a good UFO story. Of course, since this is a Matt Helm story too, you know those crafty commies have to be involved. So sun, fun, and tall tales for all on the western Mexico seaboard.

I have been a fan of the Matt Helm novels since I first encountered them in the early 1960’s. Donald Hamilton is not a great writer, but he is a creator of good plots and believably ambivalent characters. The violence in the books is not dwelt on in detail, but is treated in a matter-of-fact, this-is-the-way-the-world-is manner that may seem too cold blooded for some readers.

Audiobook The Menacers by Donald Hamilton

I’ve read the James Bond novels but they cannot compare to Matt Helm. There isn’t any spy or government agent tougher than he is. Donald Hamilton created the perfect protagonist. His stories are perfect for adventure junkies like myself.I will be waiting anxiously for the next book in the series.

I love the Donald Hamilton books. Initially read them in paperback. Love to have them in digital memory on my Kindle.

Audio The Menacers narrated by Stefan Rudnicki

Another enjoyable Matt Helm adventure sees our intrepid hero in Mexico, on the trail of a threat to the USA in the shape of flying saucers! Or perhaps the true enemy is rather more terrestrial… As usual, a key part of Helm’s job is to work out whose side everyone is on. Can his allies all be trusted? And could his enemies not all be so hostile after all?

Another fast paced and exciting book! I enjoyed the story and the plot twists and the characters were true to form! Looking forward to the next in the series!

Having enjoyed two of Hamilton’s Matt Helm novels, I chose The Menacers to be my third. One of the villains turns out to be a lesbian. No problem there. But Helm equates her viciousness with her lesbianism. When Helm calls a Mexican villain a “greaser,”a female friend chides him, though she had no problem with his contempt for a “bull dyke.” Helm also thinks he can tell one of the male villains is gay (it has to do with how the man cares about his appearance), and later regards this villain as a “fairy” with courage. Meanwhile, it is clear that Hamilton considers Helm (and his female friend) to be intelligent and likeable characters.

These things I could forgive, since this book was written in the sixties, but there are other problems with this book. Since Helm has such disregard for all of the men at the top, and since there is no indication that his pay is spectacular, it dawned on me that it made no sense that he would continue working at jobs with so much risk of serious injury or death, especially considering the levels of risk that are so prevalent in this story. And though he talks about being a patriot, there is no evidence as to why he would be. I concluded that Helm is an exploited jerk who just enjoys having an excuse for killing people, and that the major flaw of the book is that while Hamilton must be aware that he has created a very sad protagonist, he just ignores the sadness.

In addition, there are characters from the beginning of the book whose names pop up, with no reminders of who they are, or their roles in the intrigue. And to top it all off, too many unbelievable circumstances appear toward the finish. The whole thing is too ridiculous to be thrilling, or even interesting. I’m finished with the Matt Helm series, and not interested in any other books by Hamilton.
