Alistair MacLean’s UNACO is fictional U.N. agency created by Alistair MacLean for a series of movie outlines. These outlines were used for the basis of a series of thriller novels by authors such as Alastair MacNeill, John Denis and Hugh Miller. The object of UNACO was to “avert, neutralize, and/or apprehend individuals or groups engaged in international criminal activities.”

The Alistair MacLean’s UNACO series began in 1980 with the novel Hostage Tower by John Denis. It would end in 1998 with the novel Borrowed Time by Hugh Miller.
