4.0 out of 5 stars Saint Saga Nş 13, 9 Oct 2008
By 
Paul Magnussen (Campbell, CA USA) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
Further lightweight but entertaining short stories of the Saint (in the same vein as The Brighter Buccaneer), wherein more mysteries are unravelled, more swindlers swindled, and more beer consumed.

Unlike some of his contemporaries, Charteris appears to have been neither a snob nor an inverted snob (although "The Noble Sportsman" contains some blistering remarks about the Huntin', Shootin' and Fishin' ethos). Politicians, however, get a tremendous series of bloody noses from the Saint books, and captains of industry do not fare well either, as here in "The Sleepless Knight".

Pat and Claud Eustace feature throughout, as usual; and Monty Hayward, Peter Quentin and (briefly) Dicky Tremayne drop in to remind us of old times.

The story "The Uncritical Publisher" is missing from some (especially the British) editions, so be careful which you get.

Variously published as "Boodle" and "The Saint Intervenes".

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