This is easily the best of the post-war collections of short stories, of which there are seven: they are set in Paris, Amsterdam, The Rhine, The Tyrol, Lucerne, Juan-les-Pins and Rome.
Of these stories, my favourite is the fourth, "The Golden Journey". But "The Spanish Cow" is sheer entertainment, even though the Saint comes perilously close to becoming a gigolo. And "The Rhine Maiden" at least is a return to the old, pre-war Saint.
P.S. For a list of all Charteris's Saint books (in two sections, because of length limitations) see my Listmanias.
