Publisher's Summary

The Saint - the hero of 100 thrilling yarns of breathless adventure and mystery. The Robin Hood of modern crime, the 20th century's gayest buccaneer.
Vincent Price, Tom Conway and Denis Green, in a rare never-before-available audition recording, star as the suave Simon Templar - poised in the presence of ladies, cool when confronted with danger. Well-known to both the criminals and the common man, his services are frequently sought, his involvement quickly detected, and his cases promptly solved.
In 20 digitally restored and remastered episodes, The Saint keeps company with corpses, amnesiacs, publishers, gamblers, and a monkey.

Not what I had expected

What would have made The Saint better?

I think if the information available before purchase had made it clear that it was a collection of short (very short) radio shows, with quite a lot of signature tune at the beginning and end of each, this would have helped. I was expecting something that ran on throughout.


If you’ve listened to books by Leslie Charteris before, how does this one compare?

I haven't listened to books by Leslie Charteris before.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I'm not sure really how to answer this question, as I only listened to about 15% of it.


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It does have a lovely period quality, and I think if someone had edited down the play-out and play-in music it would be fine.
