Publisher's Summary

The Saint is back - 50y audiobooks are now available starring the deboair classic crime hero.
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 these three early adventures, the Saint's reputation starts to rise, as he tackles thieves, smugglers, and killers. < /p>In "The Man Who Was Clever" he outwits Edgar Hayn, a drug smuggler who thinks he's smarter than everyone. In "The Policeman with Wings" he stays one step ahead of Inspector Teal in the hunt for diamonds on Dartmoor, and in "The Lawless Lady " one of the Saint's gang helps him deal with sea-faring swindlers, only to fall in love.
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.

Another time, another world

The literary world of The Saint was hidden to me for years. I used to find Saint books read by my parents left about the house but never got around to reading them myself - unlike Agatha Christie and the like. It is only in my old age that I am getting around to revisiting aspects of my youth, and discovering The Saint in words (supposed to the pictures of Sir Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy) has been an enjoyable revelation. John Telfer's narration is first class, reminding us of an earlier, different time. And perhaps a better one. These 'novellas' are a good place to start.
