He's a top-level agent, highly skilled and ultra-secret. But he wants out, and they won't let him quit. He quits anyway. Then suddenly comes the dawn when he wakes up in captivity, in a pleasant, old-style, seaside town-one packed solid with electronic surveillance hardware. This is The Village. And he is The Prisoner.

Of the 3 Prisoner paperback books that I am aware of, this is the best one. Not only for Prisoner fans, but racing fans too. You get an inside look at what its like to race a Lotus Super Seven or any other car for that matter. However, I do agree with another reviewer.... They should do a paperback series on The Prisoner like James Blish did for Star Trek -- adapting the episodes into short stories and coming out with several paperback books. 17 Prisoner episodes divided into 5.6 episodes per book would create 3 great paperbacks! Need a writer? Hey, I'm available! I have all seventeen scripts and have already tried adapting them into short stories. It would be fun!

I was misled by the back cover paragraph 'closely based on the extraordinary TV series...'. I found no correlation between the series and the book. There were no multiple escape attempts, no attempt by the Village Administrators to extract information from him regarding his resignation, and, for an ultra-secret agent who wasn't suppose to trust anyone, he was too friendly with his fellow captives. I did like the 'pre-Village' mystery history on Number Six. But I did not like being kept in the dark about what really happened to him before he entered, and after he left, the Village. Overall, I would have prefered having the television series formated into a novel.
