In order to foil a mass assassination plot, Matt Helm must undertake his most dangerous mission yet: matrimony.
An agent like Helm might be a nice man to live with for a while, but he's not the kind of guy a woman would marry - unless she has to in order to maintain an ingenious cover. The man whose daily bread is violence takes a most unlikely bride - just to ensure death doesn't part them.
If you could sum up The Shadowers in three words, what would they be?
A Dangerous Game.
Would you be willing to try another book from Donald Hamilton? Why or why not?
Yes. I am addicted. The series is made of a bunch of perfectly paced episodes set up in a real environment with real consequences.
Which scene was your favorite?
Nothing really stuck out in this entry. It was not wound nearly as tightly as the other books. It is not that it was bad. There just wasn't a highpoint.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not this time. Again the tension wasnt as built up as other entries. There was mystery and danger but we just weren't made to care like in the other books.
Any additional comments?
One of the more heartbreaking/emotional entries. But it is still told from a very realistic perspective and there is still alot to enjoy.

i honestly don't think that the series could be any better! the readings really do sell the series, obviously great care has gone into this project ( and although I really love 💘 the Dean Martin films, more Austin powers than Austin powers, an extremely guilty pleasure !!) this is more obviously Matt Helm, as Donald Hamilton wrote it(he wouldn't be 😢 all the way to the bank,anymore!) and im completely certain he'd be happy ,with this series of audio adventures!! only one mistake I've spotted in this, Rudnicki repeats one sentence,thats all ive spotted so far!
