Book Description

30 Jan 2014 Saint 26
Simon Templar heads to New York - to sip cocktails, listen to jazz, and have a good time. But he has a way of making enemies, and a quiet night in 'Cookie's Cellar' sets him on a trail involving drugs, smuggling, dead bodies, a beautiful singer called Avalon Dexter and finally the loathsome Cookie herself. The battle is on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of The Saint Sees It Through 12 Nov 2008
By Helen
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was about 14 when I started reading The Saint and it was pretty difficult to find the books on the library shelves as they were very popular then. This story, of which I remember little now in detail, was good enough along with the Saint's fame to make me read more, so I soon discovered the Saint of the early days in England pre-War, which I decided were the best by far of the Canon. They have an exciting freshness and charm that I think the post-war stories lack. The worst of all are the wartime stories. I was astonished and genuinely shocked to learn this great hero had abandoned his country (I have always assumed he's English though there seem to be differing views but he isn't American) to do trivial-seeming work in the US with some vague connection to Germany - but it was all very mediocre stuff compared with the excitements of the pre-war stories and even tedious besides the earlier post-war stories which briefly rediscovered some of the earlier glamour.

As I recall, Sees it Through is post war and there's some girl and lots of crooks in the underworld in the US and it's exciting, one of the best post-war US-set stories, well worth adding to one's collection. And blessedly, it's one of the few full-length novels. I really don't like short stories and even the novella-length Saint stories are very disappointing besides the real novels. I don't find short stories develop enough plot themes and characters and situations sufficiently to make them worth the effort reading although I'd never say a Saint story isn't worth reading even if it's a shortie. But then I've always preferred long involved stories which take some time to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable and entertaining book 26 July 2002
Dating from 1947, this book focuses on Simon Templar's efforts to crack a post-war drug ring.
Very readable, and although some (and it's a small "some") of the language used shows its age, it is remarkable how Charteris's plots are as sophisticated as anything by Jonathan Kellerman (for example).
"The Saint" is no one-dimensional all-action hero -- he makes errors and sometimes finds himself doing things that he would much rather not.
As always, Leslie Charteris scatters the pages with some very humourous set-pieces, plus the odd trinket from his own impressive real-life experiences.
This is the only book in which I've ever seen the word "cougak". Read it and find out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Saint Saga N 26 25 Jun 2012
By Paul Magnussen TOP 500 REVIEWER
This book, from 1947, is the last full-length Saint novel written entirely by Charteris (i.e. not ghost-written with his approval); and it features its hero still in his reformed wartime rle of rather eccentric G-man, on the trail of drug smugglers in New York.

Charteris's story-telling and character-drawing abilities, with the characteristic flashes of humour, never entirely desert him. But compared with the prewar books, this is dull stuff.

There is one point of especial interest, nonetheless. The Saint says to the heroine:

"[T]his thing goes too far over the world, into too many countries and too many jurisdictions. Only an organisation that's just as international can cope with it. There is such a thing, and I'm part of it. That's all I'm allowed to say."

But on the last page the organisation is clearly identified as UNCLE, over a decade before this supposedly fictional organisation was supposedly created for the TV series.

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