A UNCLE em livros / The books from UNCLE

O sucesso da série de TV O Agente da UNCLE nos anos 1960 foi tão grande que gerou vários outros subprodutos. Incluindo uma coleção de 24 livros com as aventuras de Napoleon Solo e Illya Kuryakin.

Two dozen novels were based upon Man from U.N.C.L.E. and published between 1965 and 1968.
