M Olivant, would you say this was any good? Olivant took the book and thumbed perfunctorily through a few pages. Eet is probably quite ’elpful, Mr Tombs. So you don’t work ’ere all ze time?

He straightened up, hands on hips; and the helpless man glared up at him with bulging eyes. The man squirmed, and the Saint swept him a mocking bow. Remain with God, my little ape, he murmured. He ran lightly down the corridor and out at the end into the blazing sunlight of the prison courtyard.

List of works by Leslie Charteris. Leslie Charteris (born Leslie Charles Bowyer Yin; 1907–1993) was a British-American writer best known for his series on stories featuring Simon Templar, also known as The Saint. Born in Singapore to a Chinese father, Suat Yin Chwan, and his English wife, Lydia (née Bowyer), Charteris travelled extensively with his family until beginning his education in England in 1919.

Leslie Charteris kept a deliberate air of mystery around the Saint’s early life, but I’m sure that if Simon Templar ever . It was a prolific time for Charteris. These were far from early stories, but the Saint is still very much as the author conceived him.

And should there be any aristocracy in his bloodline, it would be of the black-sheep, bastard strain.

Talk about Featuring the Saint


Ferne
This was the first of the legendary Saint books that I have read and I certainly enjoyed reading it. The book features the ever debonair Simon Templar who seeks out evil in the world and cunningly crushes it. The book is a collection of independent stories including:

- The Logical Adventure - The Saint takes on a trafficker of drugs and girls
- The Wonderful War - The Saint has adventures in a fictitious country in South America
- The Man Who Could Not Die - A whodunit story

In all of the stories, the Saint is impeccably dressed (unless a slovenly disguise is needed), calm and ever the master of the situation The Saint is often described by the author as having forgotten more about a certain skill whether it be boxing, tracking, etc then most professionals have learned. While such perfection is over the top, it adds to the mystique of the character.

The setting for the stories is about 80 years ago and the stories have an air of nostalgia and romance because of the setting. The writing is good and even though the description of the Saint is often over the top, the stories are fun to read.

Overall, a good read and I look forward to reading more of the Saint's adventures.

Leslie Charteris wrote a lot of short stories and books "Featuring the Saint". The Saint, as the protagonist, is essentially fully developed early in the genre, and changes little, though he does seem to mellow with age. The essentials of the plot vary only slightly from one story to the next, i.e., the Saint targets an evildoer and goes after him; a dangerous and impossible situation is created for the Saint; the Saint escapes and prevails because of superior strength, cunning, aggressiveness and luck. Read in succession, these tales would soon get boring. When broken up with stylistically different reading material, each of the stories "feels" new. For a little light reading, you can't help but love the Saint.

This book was a little different from the first few Saintly books. It's great to see Simon working with the Law (instead of against it) to unmask and defeat the bad guy!

This book is a collection of three novelettes featuring the Saint character. These stories do not disappoint. I would recommend this book to both established fans and newcomers to the series.

I love it. It is so good. I wish Amazon didn't make you drone on & on. The stories are worth the money.

I've been a 'Saint' fan since childhood. I'm re-reading them all.
I remember reading The Saint stories when I was 12. Now, 70 years later, I find the plots childish and highly improbable.
