This is a collection of very short stories; 14 stories in 190 pages. "The Ingenuous Colonel", "The Unfortunate Financier", "The Newdick Helicopter", "The Prince of Cherkessia", "The Treasure of Turk's Lane","The Sleepless Knight", "The Uncritical Publisher", "The Noble Sportsman","The Damsel in Distress", "The Loving Brothers", "The Tall Timber", "The Art Photographer", "The Man Who Liked Toys" and "The Mixture as Before".
I wouldn't say all the stories are nicely plotted, but they are all quite enjoyable. The Saint says "The bloke who takes money off the bloke who takes money off the sucker is something even brighter." Yes, he is a very bright guy, and that makes the stories smart and witty. The Saint gives various medicine to various villains. For example, he cons con men, blackmails a blackmailer, gives lessons to "respectable" men (such as a stock manipulator and an employer like a slave-driver) and helps Inspector Teal to solve murder cases. I like "The Prince of Cherkessia" best; no dull parts and the most unexpected ending.
