The Saint is back - the thirty-five original books starring the debonair classic crime hero are being republished in print and ebook with new introductions and extra content.About the Author:
Leslie Charteris was born in Singapore on May 12th, 1907. With his mother and brother, he moved to England in 1919 and attended Rossall School in Lancashire before moving on to Cambridge University to study law. His studies there came to a halt when a publisher accepted his first novel. His third book, entitled Meet the Tiger!, was written when he was twenty years old and published in September 1928. It introduced the world to Simon Templar, aka the Saint.
He continued to write about the Saint until 1983 when the last book, Salvage for the Saint, was published. The books, which have been translated into over thirty languages, number nearly a hundred and have sold over 40 million copies around the world. They’ve inspired, to date, fifteen feature films, three TV series, ten radio series, and a comic strip that was written by Charteris and syndicated around the world for over a decade. He enjoyed travelling but settled for long periods in Hollywood, Florida, and finally in Surrey, England. He was awarded the Cartier Diamond Dagger by the Crime Writers’ Association in 1992, in recognition of a lifetime of achievement. He died the following year.

Cover illustration by Robin Lawrie. // == // The New York underworld in the 1930s was no place for an amateur. The gangsters were the kind that shot first and asked questions later. Half the police were crooked; the other half were powerless against a corrupt judiciary. And behind them all was the mysterious 'Big Fellow'. Luckily Simon Templar, for all his suave affability, is no amateur. Hired to find the men who kidnapped and murdered the son of a millionaire, Templar finds himself up against the toughest mob in New York City - including Morrie Ualino, Dutch Kuhlmann and the delectable Fay Edwards. Can he really clean up the City single-handed? Or is he going to wind up going back to England in a wooden box?. Seller Inventory # 080222AN
