While I remember the Saint TV series I prefer the B-Movies from the 30’s and 40’s however I’ve never tried reading the original stories.
This collection of three novellas was first published in 1930. Charters second Saint book where Simon Templar starts to get in his stride. The stories are “The Man Who Was Clever”, “The Policeman With Wings” and “The Lawless Lady”.
Disappointingly I found these stories a bit laboured. I enjoyed the 1930s environment, the slap dash nature of The Saint and a few other things but… well it was slow, repetitive and a bit boring.
