Simon Templar is the Saintdaring, 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. The Saint never asks for adventures, but they will keep happening to him, and these three classic stories force him into action once more. In "The Spanish Civil War," a £10 debt leads to a dead body, a large quantity of bearers' bonds, and another tussle with Inspector Teal. "The Unlicensed Victuallers" sees Simon get involved with liquor smuggling in Dorset and a dangerous femme fatale; while "The Beauty Specialist" entangles him with film stars and movie moguls, and a particularly unpleasant blackmailer.
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.
