Helm is sent to extract a female agent working as a stripper in a bar in Mexico.
When she is killed before Helm can complete his mission to extract her, he finds himself teamed up with the woman's sister as he fights to save the lives of a group of scientists and American officials.
Perhaps the most famous of the titles, due to the Dean Martin film of the same name, but where the movies were tongue-in-cheek, the novels are breathtakingly brutal.

Review by jimmaclachlan
I'm noticing some poor proofreading in this edition. A lowercase 'L' turned into a capital 'I' in one case, 'nuke' replaced 'mike' in another. I'll bet they're OCR errors. So far, not as bad as the Ace reprints of the 90's, but not up to the quality of the previous reprints.<br/><br/>The story was still pretty good. It's set back in the 60's but holds up well, at least for me. Few use tire chains any more & phone booths need to be sought out, but otherwise not bad. Good mystery & Helm is at his cold blooded best.
