Publisher's Summary

The Saint is back –- 50 audiobooks are now available starring the debonair 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.
These three stories find the Saint flushing out swindlers in inimitable style. In "The Logical Adventure" Templar is on the tail of a famous aviator who has a sideline in drug smuggling and human trafficking. In "The Wonderful War" the Saint travels to the Central American republic of Pasala to avenge the murder of an oil inspector, which involves instigating revolution. Finally, in "The Man Who Could Not Die", the Saint encounters adrenaline junkie Miles Hallin. Hallin claims to be able to cheat death but when one of Templar's friends is killed, the Saint decides to put that to the test.
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.

Very dated

Would you try another book written by Leslie Charteris or narrated by John Telfer?

no I wouldn't. So dated that it isn't even funny. And yet the TV series seems as fresh as ever, shame.
