The Prisoner: Shattered Visage

We rated this book:


The Village was once the most feared and mysterious detention area in the world, a place where your mind and will would be broken and your secrets laid bare. But that was a long time ago. Could there be more to uncover? Former spy Alice Drake may find out as a shipwreck leaves her marooned there. And as she investigates the treacherous ruins of the Village, she discovers she’s not alone. Number Six still haunts the island. Can he be trusted, or was he finally broken by his captors?

Directly referencing the events of the original series, The Prisoner: Shattered Visage shows us one possible way that the show could have ended; new characters and government forces play shadow games with The Village as the ultimate prize, even while the show’s classic rivalry, Number Two vs. Number Six, concludes as well.

It’s a dark and engaging romp throughout, as you’re forced to question the motives of everyone in Alice’s life, from her ex-husband and her former employers to the original hero of the series. As layer after layer of the onion are peeled away, you find yourself reeling, and yet, you can’t help but keep turning the pages. After all, the answer might just be around the next turn.

The Prisoner: Shattered Visage does a killer job of recreating the paranoia and mystery of the original series, but freshening it up for a modern audience.
