Book Description

25 April 2013 Saint 10

Simon Templar is the Saint - daring, dazzling, and just a little disreputable. On the side of the law, but standing outside it, he dispenses his own brand of justice one criminal at a time.

In Paris, a dying man claims his brother can make gold... a secret that men are prepared to kill for. In London, a small-time American criminal sets up a violent gang, only to learn that there are certain things the Saint will not put up with. And in the Scilly Isles, drug-smuggling, drugged beer and a damsel in distress combine to make for a most unusual holiday for Simon Templar. In these three stories, the Saint needs all his wits to survive - and to stay out of jail.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Saint Goes On ! 5 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just want to make a general appreciation of the fact that these wonderful books are back in print - with excellent introductions by crime writers and other enthusiasts. These books which are not sufficiently well known these days are up there with P G Wodehouse, better than James Bond and much better than almost anything else in their genre.

I know of many people who will tell you that their lives, attitudes and resilience have benefitted from an early acquaintance with Simon Templar. Well, now he's back for a new generation. The Saint Goes On !

5.0 out of 5 stars Saint Saga Nş 10 21 Nov 2013
By Paul Magnussen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The Saint, returning to England via France after his round against Prince Rudolf and the entire German police force, has counteracted Claud Eustace Teal's ambition to arrest him immediately by a method that (let it be admitted) is not really cricket, and which draws upon him the disapproval of his lady; but which is effective nonetheless.

In Paris he has heard the last words of the victim of a murder that he was too late to witness. But this is enough draw the killer's attention to him, involving him in the first of the three adventures related here. The mainspring of the story is a scientific invention that was implausible even by the standards of 1933; but if those with a knowledge of atomic physics can put it temporarily aside, they will still find an enjoyable yarn.

The next story finds Simon helping Chief Inspector Teal for once, combatting an outbreak of gangsterism in London, and in the final one he deals in a fairly drastic way with two purveyors of something possibly even more unpleasant.

All of these novelettes, especially the last two, are rather grimmer and more serious than the general run of Saint stories, despite several comic interludes. But then, who wants a non-stop diet of froth?

Variously published as "Once More the Saint" and "The Saint and Mr. Teal".

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

4.0 out of 5 stars My First Encounter with The Saint 3 April 2012
By Clarice - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My father used to devour The Saint books. I think what put me off them for so many decades was my mother's somewhat snobbish dismissal of them as "good fantasies for overgrown boys." That sounds harsher than she actually said it, as she was playfully teasing my father, who used to tell me he wished he had The Saint's good looks, physical prowess, intelligence, wit, and way with women.

So, here I find myself, decades later, deciding that it's time for me to find out for myself. I opened this book thinking it was a novel; it's actually three novellas, two of good length and one of medium length. And each is the perfect length, just enough to do justice to the plot and sketch out Simon Templar's many facets/talents, as well as his singlehanded pursuit of justice as he defines it. Today we'd probably have a lot of good discussions about The Saint's complete willingness to judge and to take matters into his own hands, much as we do with Jack Reacher. But in the context of a book published in 1933, I think we can just sit back and enjoy Simon's mixture of cockiness and his Robin Hood-like feeling for the downtrodden.

And Mom might have been surprised to discover that The Saint's girlfriend/lover, Patricia Holm, is way ahead of her time in her independence and ability to fend for herself, while also serving as The Saint's partner in crime/justice. I left the book wanting more of her - perhaps a precursor to Mrs. Peel?

There is a joie de vivre in these stories that's hard to describe. Charteris' prose is somewhat flowery, with long sentences and Upper Crusty vocabulary, but for me at least, that was part of the fun; it really was like being taken back in time to a more romanticized time. I should warn modern readers, though, that the last of the three novellas, "The Death Penalty," has some fairly explicit racism that was part of the cultural milieu of the 30s but that will certainly strike a discordant note with modern readers. And yet there is an underlying criticism of racism within the story, which makes me think Charteris may have been ahead of his time, much like Pat Holm. I did enjoy this book: pure escapism, lively writing, and some nice twists and turns. Perhaps The Saint is a little too perfect, a little too prescient - but this is fiction, after all.

A quick P.S. for those new to The Saint: The "Mr. Teal" of the title is Claud Eustace Teal of Scotland Yard, who is charged with bringing The Saint to justice but who often finds himself willingly or unwillingly aligned with Mr. Templar in the cause of justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the classic detective novels ever written 14 Jun 2014
By Teamtunafish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always loved The Saint. I got caught by the Roger Moore English tv series, and then I discovered the books, far more that the simplistic episodes on the TV show. They are eminently better, taking the dectective into a lot more sophisicated adventures, with a gang that caused no end of opsy dificulties. Needless to say a perfect beach book (or 12). Not the most intellectual books to read, but great page-tuners and wonderful fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Saint. 'nuff said. 20 Jan 2014
By David Steinman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am very, very happy that this is back in print. My old copy was held together with rubber bands. I give copies of these books to all my children. The writing permanently warped my style, but in a good way.
