Well, here it is, the Holy Grail of Man from U.N.C.L.E. fandom.
David McDaniel wrote several of the Ace paperback U.N.C.L.E. novels. He was also a fan of the show, as you can tell by his characterizations, and several "guest appearances" of other fictional creations in his U.N.C.L.E. books, including a certain world's first consulting detective, if my memory serves.
Well, before his death, McDaniel wrote an MS called The Final Affair, which summed up his thoughts on the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement and its agents.
The MS was never published, and has been passed around, even copies sold on eBay, I've heard.
Well, several friends in the Man from U.N.C.L.E. Yahoo! group got together and decided to share The Final Affair with all interested cousins.
So, with thanks to Kathy E., Cindy Walker, Paula Smith, Greenwoman, and Bob Short. . .
Submitted for your approval is David McDaniel's "long lost" The Final Affair.

Let me know what you think!
We would like to also thank the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, without whose cooperation this blog post would not be possible.
