Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
No. 13 in LWT's novelisations of The Professionals is a slight departure from their usual format. Up to this point the books had occasionally contained the odd 'deleted scene' that had been removed from a TV episode during editing, but generally the publisher's brief to squeeze three episodes into a set page count meant that material was pruned rather than expanded upon. However, for the first time, this book covers just a single episode, namely series creator Brian Clemens' "The Untouchables", a rather convoluted and complicated tale of CI5 staging a sting operation to trap an Arab diplomat who's been making a nuisance of himself murdering people. On screen, this complex story was struggling to fit into its time slot and is frankly a little hard to follow what's going on: for once the novelisation is able to expand things a bit and explain rather better what's happening.
Still credited to the pen-name "Ken Blake", this is the second in the series to be written by fantasty novelist Robert Holdstock, whose prose is a little more sophisticated than that provided by Kenneth Bulmer for earlier installments, although Clemens' subject material of negro poker players, high-class hookers and Arab assassins reeks of 70s wrongness.
