Leslie Charteris The Ace of Knaves
The Saint in action

This was first published 1937 as The Ace of Knaves by H&S (UK - dated ‘June 1937’) and Crime Club. In 1947 Avon brought out a paperback titled The Saint in Action, but this has not been adopted by others. They also brought out The Saint and the Ace of Knaves a few years later which omits The Spanish War.

Contents: The Spanish War (first published in The Thriller Feb 13 1937 as The Return of the Saint). A tale of violence and forgery. The Saint helps Teal investigate a murder;
The Unlicenced Victuallers (written for this book) which starts with The Saint hijacking a lorryload of booze; and
The Beauty Specialist (first published in The Thriller March 27 1937 as The Z-Man). A blackmailer threatens women with disfigurement.

The above information was taken from my CDROM 'A History of the Saint books'
It is an ebook in pdf format and has over 200 pages full of information and over 600 pictures of my favourite cover art.
It costs 5.99 to download from the web, but because it is so large it could take a long time to download on a slow link.
It costs 6.99 on cdrom to anywhere in the World.
New edition contains lots more biographical, radio, TV, comics, non-Saint book details, etc. Buy it here now
