The Returners: Matt Helm being reissued!

I just learned today that Donald Hamilton's dark and brutal spy series with Matt Helm is going to be reprinted, starting from 2013. See for some details here. Added are two coming covers, with thanks to Bruce Grossman who blogs at Bookgasm. I'll also quote Bruce who said that "Matt Helm would make James Bond cry".

Ah, yes. The Wrecking Crew is the one set in Sweden. I have a hunch he wrote it after a trip to the old country, there are just too many keen observations. I wish I knew his address where he lived as a kid here in Uppsala. if I did I'd petition the city to put up a plaque.
