4.0 out of 5 stars Saint Saga Nş 27 6 Aug 2007
By Paul Magnussen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
1948's "Call for the Saint" marks a partial, but nonetheless welcome, return to the old (1930s) Saint from the sanitised and lobotomised G-man of the War years.

In the first story, set in Chicago, the Saint works to find the brain behind a protection racket; in the second, he unravels the mystery behind the rise of an apparently talentless New York boxer.

Both stories, unusually at this late date, also feature Patricia Holm and Hoppy Uniatz — the latter in particularly fine form.

P.S. For a list of all Charteris's Saint books (in two sections, because of length limitations) see my Listmanias.
