Another in my series of forgotten or seldom read books
This 1943 hardcover contains six stories: “The Story of A Dead Man”, “The Impossible Crime”, “The National Debt”, “The Logical Adventure”, “The Wonderful War” and “The Man Who Could Not Die”. All of them very good.
I was a late comer to The Saint. I knew about the TV show, but watched it only a couple of times before tiring of Roger Moore. I didn’t see any of the films, hadn’t read any of the books. But then a few years ago I read a review of one of the books and it intrigued me enough to pick up an old paperback. I was surprised and pleased to find I liked the writing, plot and character.
So of course I got a bunch more Saint books and stashed them away. Finally I pulled this one out and read it over the space of a couple of a few days, enjoying myself the entire time. Why did I wait? Not sure. Lots of other things to read, there’s always that tall TBR stack. Regardless, I really enjoyed these stories.
I’m not going to summarize each story I’ll let the reader who’s interested have the pleasure of finding out for her or himself, but can recommend this collection. Very enjoyable. I’ll be reading more of those books I got, soon.
