Saint Saga Nº 07,
This review is from: The Saint Meets His Match (Saint 07) (Paperback)
"She Was a Lady" (aka "The Saint Meets His Match" aka "The Angels of Doom") is one of the few Saint books from this period not to feature Patricia Holm. The reason, apparently, is that it was originally not a Saint story, but was adapted from one written before the author settled on the Saint as his protagonist of choice.
Nevertheless, the adaptation of this full-length story (concerning a battle of wits with a girl out to revenge the framing and consequent suicide of her father) is a thorough one. The Saint's constant adversary Claud Eustace Teal is fully integrated into the story, which is told with the author's usual acerbic wit; and Slinky Dyson and Snake Ganning (both from Enter the Saint) make cameo appearances.
And at the end we find out that the Saint and James Bond have more in common than we suspected.
P.S. For a list of all Charteris's Saint books (in two sections, because of length limitations) see my Listmanias.
