Summary

The Saint is back - 50 audiobooks are now available starring the debonair classic crime hero.

Simon Templar is the Saint - daring, dazzling, and just a little disreputable. On the side of the law, but standing outside it, he dispenses his own brand of justice one criminal at a time.

After a fruitless chase across Europe on the tail of his enemy Rayt Marius, the Saint returns to London with a price on his head. But adventure is never far from Simon Templar's door, and soon he finds himself rescuing Sonia Delmar, a munitions heiress, from Marius's clutches. Sonia allies with the Saint - in a bid to prevent Marius and his ally Prince Rudolf bringing war and destruction to Europe.

Leslie Charteris was born in Singapore and moved to England in 1919. He left Cambridge University early when his first novel was accepted for publication. He wrote novels about the Saint throughout his life, becoming one of the 20th century's most prolific and popular authors.

Love the story, miss previous narrator

This is my second favorite Saint story. It has everything you love about the Saint adventures: adventure, rescues, high stakes, and fantastic hyperbole descriptions. The narrator is okay but difficult to listen to if you first heard the Frederick Davison version, especially when "singing" <cringe>. That given this is one great story.

Flowery and dated.

The writing style is very much a thing of the past, with loads of hyperbole and gushing over how brave and wonderful the Saint is. If you can get past this,it's got some fun stuff.
