Leslie Charteris wrote a lot of short stories and books "Featuring the Saint". The Saint, as the protagonist, is essentially fully developed early in the genre, and changes little, though he does seem to mellow with age. The essentials of the plot vary only slightly from one story to the next, . the Saint targets an evildoer and goes after him; a dangerous and impossible situation is created for the Saint; the Saint escapes and prevails because of superior strength, cunning, aggressiveness and luck.


POFOD
I found this to be one of the better written of the saint adventures,it is not nearly as dated as the earlier ones. And Charteris' style is far less verbose than in the earlier stories. It is also more fun, at least for me.

love this series

This is yet another exciting adventure for Simon Templar, when the Cold War is still going strong! I wholeheartedly endorse it!
Tamesya
Roger Moore was the Saint in the 1960s when this book came out. You can picture him in your mind as you read this epic adventure!
Beanisend
The US military fraternity asks the Saint for a favour in tracking the daughter of a spy that has vanished when she receives a communication from her father.

Needless to say, multiple nogoodniks are also interested in this young woman, and the possibilities of what she might find, particularly as it probably involves oodles of cash.
