John Tiger's Mission: Impossible (TV tie-in novel)

Despite being immensely successful Mission: Impossible spawned only four TV tie-in novels (all of which were original stories rather than novelisations). The first was Mission: Impossible by John Tiger (a pseudonym used by Walter Wager). It was published in 1967.

This novel is based on the first season so the Impossible Missions Force is led by Dan Briggs (played on TV by Steven Hill).

It captures the atmosphere of the TV series more successfully than most TV tie-in novels. It’s fast-moving and the plot really does feel like a Mission: Impossible plot. It’s all very enjoyable and highly recommended.
