The Saint Meets the Tiger

"Meet the Tiger", as my old copy calls this, introduces us to Simon Templar and a selection of his cohorts. The Saint (as he becomes known) is drawn with very broad brush-strokes in this first outing, but he is clearly the character that became one of the top fiction characters of a generation or two. Darker than he would later be in the 30s books (although no the cypher he eventually became once the war started), the Templar of "Meet the Tiger" has all the charm of the later Saint, while lacking the moral ambiguity that later made him such a favourited. In short, he's a crook, who transcends his criminal tendencies through (let's be honest) lust rather than a higher moral code a personality error that was quickly fixed by Charteris. A real plus for this book is that Charteris had yet to fall into the trap of clumsy, polysyllabic hunmour that marred some of his other works. He tells the story and tells it straight - and it's (in the best sense) a ripping yarn. They don't write them like this anymore it's like a bridge between Bulldog Drummond and James Bond.
