about this item
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.
In this collection of nine short stories the Saint encounters a clever detective who isn't, a well-meaning mayor, a man who likes ants, and a producer who turns out, much to the Saint's surprise, to be actually quite smart.
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.
