Mb. Many years ago I resolved that you were one of the first people I must dedicate a book to. But time slips by, and it's sadly easy to lose touch with someone who lives hundreds of miles away. So this comes very late, but I hope not too late; because even though this may be a bad book, if 1 hadn't come tinder your guidance many years ago it would probably have been very much worse.

This is a collection of fourteen short stories from the early 1930's. Most of the stories originally appeared in a Sunday newspaper, one story each week, the remaining stories first appeared in magazines. Each of these stories can be read and enjoyed individually, and in any order by anyone who has the faintest familiarity with the Saint, either from books or television.

In these stories Simon is often working solo although from time to time Pat and some others do appear. Simon and his companions have apparently done quite well for themselves so that money was no longer their motivation. Now the focus has shifted to separating con men and other criminals from their ill gotten gains, occasionally even working with Inspector Teal to deliver justice.

The stories are all fun, light hearted romps, not particularly challenging puzzles but definitely entertaining. These are perfect companions to take on a trip or to fill in odd moments waiting for appointments etc. And for those reading this in the kindle format, the copy is clean, free from typos and properly formatted and quite well worth the modest price.

Simon Templar, aka The Saint defraudes crooks who try to swindle innocent people.
But when doing this he never leaves any concrete evidence behind. You gloat thinking it serves them right. He is even friendly with Inspector Teal. Sometimes he helps the inspector to solve a crime.

This is a book which comprises of short stories. I enjoyed reading it.

Indeed 'The Saint Intervenes,' in short and succinct stories, pleases the instincts of fans of this genre - where each target of Simon Templar's unique brand of trickery get exactly what they deserve, and it is often their own greed that is their undoing. "Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit, and tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, I will be brief" (Shakespeare)- Leslie Charteris is a genius. The author finds no briefer way to extol the knightly virtues of one knavish happy highwayman than in these saintly adventures. Although Boodle is his extemporaneous fortune, his mirthful enterprise does good turn for society as an added benefit, bereft of the shackles placed on the likes of Chief Inspector Teal. My only regret, the individualist nature of "The Saint" should have as a target one of the preeminent tyrants of all: politicians - but I'll keep reading, maybe some future Saintly story will reveal my desire.

When I was younger I used to love the Saint books. This was a group of short stories and, while they were interesting, I was left with a bit of disappointment. I did enjoy the biographical material about Leslie Charteris.

I find Raffles and various P G Wodehouse stories pretty much on a par with the Saint. I do not like the spy stories which are usually book length but love the con stories which are generally short stories. It's the humor I like. Mark Twain fits in here too I believe. The writing is intelligent, the vocabulary large - these are high level if light hearted fun.

I have enjoyed The Saint since I was a small child - especially the early books. The short stories contained in this book do not equal the longer books in many ways. However, since it was The Saint, I did enjoy them.

It is an interesting collection of old Saint short stories that were most likely used as the basis for the 1950's TV series.
This is another great series of stories, in which the Saint intervenes to make the world a better place. I have been reading these books in order and can hardly wait to start the next one.
