'Simon had about him that indefinable atmosphere of romance and adventurousness which is given to some favoured men in every age, and it attracted adventure as inevitably as a magnet attracts iron filings' Leslie Charteris Exciting, debonair and ever so slightly disreputable, the Saint is ready to mete out justice in a way that only he can. These adventures take him all over the world, where, with that ever present twinkle in his eye, he flushes out swindlers, murderers and jewel thieves. He helps to solve an unusual murder in Paris, confounds a cunning crook in Bermuda and in Rome he is grabbed by the long arm of the Mafia at their peril! Sir Roger Moore, star of the Sixties TV series, introduces this collection of post-war stories, which include The Patient Playboy and The Sporting Chance.
