Leslie Charteris The Saint in Europe. Paris: The covetous headsman. Simon knew that that appearance was deceptive. It was the Saint’s business, in the cause of outlawry, to know the reputations of many police officers in many places, and he knew that on the record Inspector Quercy’s instincts, if the canine parallel must be continued, leaned more towards those of the bloodhound, the retriever, and the bulldog. If you come here as a simple tourist, Quercy said, France welcomes you.

The Saint in Europe collection of stories was first published in 1954. In terms of crime writing, that places it in the era of Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale, Raymond Chandler’s The Long Goodbye, and Patricia Highsmith’s brilliantly titled The Talented Mr Ripley. If nothing else, to survive in such distinguished company and still be in print almost sixty years later can be no accident.

The Saint In Europe book. He trots across the globe creating havoc, and Leslie Charteris describes these adventures in delectable prose. To the politically correct purist, many of the Saint stories may be unacceptable as they have racist undertones and are sexist to the core. I also winced reading some of them, but I find that I can forgive the author allowing for the historical factor and the redeeming beauty of his writing.

While the saint is often referred to as a modern day Robin Hood, Charteris more often than not in this book calls him a buccaneer. In this story Simon reminds us of the darker side to his character, when he acts as both judge and executioner, something we had glimpsed at the climax of The Covetous Headsman. It turns out that Simon has taken them to teach her a lesson, forcing her to walk cross-country through Austria and learn about the real cost of living.

I first read this book in 1967. It contains my favorite Saint story: The Golden Journey, which was one of the books that led me into a life that includes hiking. I have reread it many times and still have my original copy. As you can imagine that 50 year old paperback is a bit worn, so I decide to get this as an ebook which will never wear out.

This compilation of stories is completely enjoyable! It is a lot of fun reading how Simon is able to, repeatedly, get himself and others out of trouble.

This is easily the best of the post-war collections of short stories, of which there are seven: they are set in Paris, Amsterdam, The Rhine, The Tyrol, Lucerne, Juan-les-Pins and Rome.

Of these stories, my favourite is the fourth, "The Golden Journey". But "The Spanish Cow" is sheer entertainment, even though the Saint comes perilously close to becoming a gigolo. And "The Rhine Maiden" at least is a return to the old, pre-war Saint.

P.S. For a list of all Charteris's Saint books, look up "Simon Templar" (section "The Saint book series") on Wikipedia.
