The Prisoner by Thomas M. Disch
2010, Paperback

Based on the highly acclaimed 1960s television show, Thomas M. Disch's novelization of The Prisoner is a sci-fi classic in its own right, written by one of the masters of the genre. Combining elements of a spy thriller with Orewllian tropes of science fiction, The Prisoner follows a former British secret agent who has quit the force, only to find himself trapped in an anonymous place called the Village. Known only as "Number 6," he struggles to maintain his individual identity in the face of the nameless powers that be, who use increasingly sophisticated and terrifying methods in order to extract his secrets.
