Simon Templar never goes anywhere with the intention of getting into trouble, but trouble seems to like following him. In seven adventures round Europe, he discovers dead bodies, missing jewels, kidnappers and swindlers galore. He was meant to be on holiday - but when push comes to shove, he'll make sure that justice is done. 'The character of Simon Templar forms the perfect literary bridge between John Buchan's Richard Hannay and Ian Fleming's James Bond.' Mike Ripley

With the outbreak of the Second World War, the Saint has almost turned respectable. Employed by a secret wing of the government to track down spies and take on cases the ordinary police can't touch, he is dining in Washington DC when a young woman asks for his help. Her father, a noted scientist, has invented a new form of synthetic rubber - and now he has disappeared, and she is under threat. Simon is sceptical - but he swiftly realises there's something to her story. Soon he finds himself on the hunt of a band of conspirators who will stop at nothing to ensure the invention never sees the light of day.

How could the Saint possibly resist the chance of a treasure hunt? When his sailing trip along the French coast is interrupted by gunfire and shouting, naturally he gets curious.

When the Saint and Patricia spot a country house on fire they rush to help, but are too late to rescue one man trapped inside.

He launches his own investigation - getting engaged along the way - and soon gets caught up with generals, financiers, and an assassination plot designed to start a war.Published on the verge of war in 1938, The Saint Plays with Fire is a striking condemnation of nationalism and the prejudices that both Charteris and the Saint despised.

'Simon had about him that indefinable atmosphere of romance and adventurousness which is given to some favoured men in every age, and it attracted adventure as inevitably as a magnet attracts iron filings' Leslie Charteris Exciting, debonair and ever so slightly disreputable, the Saint is ready to mete out justice in a way that only he can. These adventures take him all over the world, where, with that ever present twinkle in his eye, he flushes out swindlers, murderers and jewel thieves. He helps to solve an unusual murder in Paris, confounds a cunning crook in Bermuda and in Rome he is grabbed by the long arm of the Mafia at their peril! Sir Roger Moore, star of the Sixties TV series, introduces this collection of post-war stories, which include The Patient Playboy and The Sporting Chance.
