Simon Templar is the Saint--daring, 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.

In these three stories, the Saint finds himself embroiled in further plots and facing new enemies. "The Inland Revenue" sees him up against the most unyielding opponent ever--the taxman. In "The Million Pound Scandal," a good deed leads Simon to uncover a plot to undermine the Italian economy, and in "The Melancholy Journey of Mr. Teal" the Saint's retirement plans are scuppered when a couple of murderous diamond smugglers object to his scheme of taking their loot for his pension.

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.
