This is the first Man From UNCLE novel I've read, so I can't weigh it against the others in the series. However, it is the entry in the series that comes the most highly recommended by my friends who love, as I do, the concept of fictional characters from different franchises co-existing in the same world. Fans of Philip Jose Farmer's Wold Newton Family concept or Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comic books will equally enjoy this UNCLE adventure in which ...more

Dave NcDaniel was the best of the writers contracted for this series, and he always took pains to pay homage to other great pulp heroes (and villains) of literature. Nowhere is that more apparent, or so well executed, as in this book. Although they are never mentioned by name, there is no doubt that our intrepid UNCLE agents cross paths with Dr Fu Manchu, the Saint, Steed and Mrs Peel, Sherlock Holmes, Bulldog Drummond and other luminaries. An average reader will find this a well-written and ...more

This novel is one step up from a fan-fic; The Saint, Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, Fu Manchu, 007 and other famous British detective novel characters make an appearance.

The most fun of the Man From UNCLE tie in books, it fails to take the TV series seriously at all, introducing a large number of characters from other fiction (from Sherlock Holmes, John Steed and Father Brown to Neddie Seagoon - not all having their original names). They aid Napoleon and Ilya in their search across southern England for master criminal Johnny Rainbow.

Brief cameos from Steed and Emma Peel, more blatant ones from an elderly Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple, among others, and I might have spotted a kind of retrospective mention of Jeeves and Wooster. That’s not to mention Stonehenge getting a look-in, and a mysterious island off the coast that wouldn’t go amiss in a Famous Five book. This is a great, fun read from a good Uncle writer.

Excellent book adaptation of the TV series. Great spy adventure book. This is how the CIA and FBI should operate. Recommended
