More 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.

Format: Hardcover
While sleeping comfortably one night aboard a friend's yacht, Simon Templar is rudely awakened by shouts in the night followed by gunshots. Soon after -- and much to the Saint's surprise -- a pretty bikini-clad lady climbs aboard. Loretta Page works for an investigation company that is busy investigating one Kurt Vogel. Vogel is after a prize entombed in a sunken ship and will stop at nothing to get it. The thought of sunken treasure interests the Saint enough to help Miss Page, stop Vogel, and pocket as much of the treasure as he can pilfer.

By Paul Magnussen on April 7, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This full-length Saint adventure finds Simon in search of sunken treasure — or rather, in search of people in search of it.

The background to the story is impeccably set up. The breadth of Charteris's knowledge was astonishing: there is even a passing reference to verifying Wegener's Theory of Continental Drift, which at that point (1936) had collected nothing but ridicule.

In terms of continuity there are several references to earlier Saintly adventures, Orace figures prominently, and Roger Conway and Peter Quentin join in.

Nevertheless, I like this book much less than other Saint stories of the same period. But I'm not sure why, unless it's the predictability of the plot and the ordinariness of the heroine. Perhaps there just isn't as much fun in it.

So only three stars, for me. Your mileage may differ.

P.S. For a list of — and discussion of — all Charteris's Saint books, see my So You'd Like To... Guide.
