go to site On the last page, Simon Templar lets slip to the effect that, like Sherlock Holmes, he also has a Boswell who writes up his adventures and publishes them as fiction:. This is the tome in which I dutifully make notes of our efforts for the benefit of an author bloke I know, who has sworn to make a blood-and-thunder classic of us one day. Simon Templar, the fictional hero, knows Leslie Charteris, the author.
It is a wise man who communes with his creator. Writers and readers of mystery fiction have long shared a secret.
Readers are never passive observers, they are active participants. The adventures of the Saint are experiences shared between Leslie Charteris and those who choose to join the fun.

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 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. This is my second favorite Saint story.
It has everything you love about the Saint adventures: adventure, rescues, high stakes, and fantastic hyperbole descriptions. That given this is one great story.
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.
Written by: Leslie Charteris. Narrated by: Joihn Telfer.
