There was no doubt about his death of its circumstances.But could he somehow have escaped from the explosion and defected THRUSH, taking the secrets of that weapon with him? Could he now be fighting treacherously for a position of power in THRUSH, using the P.A.R. against his rivals?The head of THRUSH's San Francisco satrap claimed that was true, and he had voluntarily walked into U.N.C.L.E. Headquarters to ask for help against King. Obviously U.N.C.L.E. had to act - but Napoleon and Illya knew they would be facing sudden death from all sides....

The Hollow Crown Affair Reviews
Having recently found and read the first Man from U.N.C.L.E. TV tie-in novel (which I also gave one star), I thought I'd try one of the later stories to see if they improved over time, "just for fun." But turned out to be a really bad idea -- now I just feel dirty.This book is so bad, to actually give this one star I should really upgrade my review of the first book to 3 stars, just so you could tell how much worse this one is. It reads like current fan fiction written by a junior high student. The action (and I use that word with heavy sarcasm) takes place in such "exotic" locales as Philadelphia and a Vermont college town, and at one point devolves into a frat-style water balloon/shaving cream fight...I have never quit such a slim book in the middle before, but life is just WAY too short. So I guess my little experiment with that box of old TV show books has come to a sad end...although I still have some I Spy and Avengers in there...
This is another absolutely corking Uncle novel by David McDaniel, with the return of the wonderful Thrush arch villain Ward Baldwin and his equally wonderful, refined, deviously intelligent and capable wife Irene. Napoleon and Illya are perfectly drawn, and Mr Waverly has his perfect counterpart in Baldwin. At times I wasn't sure why Uncle were so assiduously protecting a Thrush man, but really it didn't matter. The whole adventure was marvellous.
Another visit with Ward Baldwin and his wife Irene. Even though they are key members of THRUSH, they are most enjoyable. They certainly have a very dry sense of humor that adds a subtle kick to the story. Baldwin and Alexander Waverly know each other from way back and get along with other despite the fact they are on opposite sides of the fence.
Excellent book adaptation of the TV series. Great spy adventure book. This is how the CIA and FBI should operate. Recommended
