Traitor Redeemed is a 179-page slash Man from UNCLE novel by R. Dean Becker. It is the sequel to Beloved Traitor.


The distributor, Agent With Style, categorizes this novel as as slash intimated.

This source calls it slash. "Main relationship is IK/f. NS and IK remain friends, but NS angsts over what might have been." [1]

An ad in Z.I.N.E.S. v.2 n.1 (2000) also calls it slash.


From Agent With Style: "The story begins where the last novel left off, with Illya confessing his 'treason' and leaving U.N.C.L.E., most of his memories wiped clean by the agency's psychtechs. Only the memories most deeply rooted in Illya's mind remain with him: those of Napoleon Solo and Alexander Waverly. What will he do now? How can he survive with this gigantic hole in his mind? And how will Napoleon accept having to believe his partner would betray him willingly? This novel is an intense read, fraught with all the frustration, anger and emotion a certain Russian would have you believe he is above feeling."

From the Publisher's Notes in the Zine

Every time we come down to publishing one of R. Dean's stories, I have to reflect on how fortunate we are to have her among our family of writers and artists. Despite adversity, she has remained by our side. It was a very lucky day for our presses when we received her first submission for one of our publications. I am always amazed at the stories she sends, from short, light pieces, to one as large and as Intense as this one. Her talent for weaving a tale that keeps you rivetted [sic] to your seat seems to get better and better. And that is as it should be.

One particular point is her ability to create secondary characters who are as well-rounded as the primaries. I think you'll find the supporting cast in this novella well developed and quite appealing ~ each in his or her own way.

I believe you will not be dissappointed [sic] in this, her latest offering, and the conclusion of the incidents began in BELOVED TRAITOR. TRAITOR REDEEMED is an intense read, fraught with all the frustration, anger, and emotion a certain Russian would have you believe he is above feeling.

As the artist for this story, I can only hope that you enjoy my offerings, and that you find it complimentary to an already excellent piece of work.

Now, sit back and put your feet up. You are in for one serious rollercoaster ride of emotion and action.
