Three stories involving the Saint. Set between the wars this is quite a lot of fun. The Saint in classic mode with the help of Hoppy Unitaz and Patricia Holm

The first story The High Fence is about a fence who is proving very elusive and is good a hiding himself from those below him. He comes to the attention of the Saint partially because the Saint becomes a prime suspect, so he feels he has to prove his innocence (of this at least!)

The Second story was the Elusive Ellshaw. When Mrs Ellshaw comes to the Saint to help find her husband who has gone missing which leads the Saint to nearly being blown up and into an adventure to find out what's going on.

The last story The Case of the Frightened Innkeeper is the story of a damsel in distress, strange noises at night and a mystery that he needs to solve.

All of the stories are fun and all of the characters are in top form. ( )

...a small souvenir of many gallons of pre-Repeal wine, and many nights of superbly useless argument which I shall always love to remember.
First words
Apart from the fact that neither of them was a productive or useful member of the community, Johnny Anworth and Sunny Jim Fasson had very little in common. ("The High Fence")
The visitors who came to see the Saint uninvited were not only members of the C.I.D. ("The elusive Ellshaw")
"Business" took Simon Templar to Penzance, though nobody ever knew exactly what he had to do there. ("The frightened innkeeper")
There is honour among thieves, but it is not designed to resist bad weather.

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In 2011, an article in The Age accused Detective Paul Dale of nodding ?off for a quick power nap ? while a notorious gangland figure escaped from the back of an armed robbery squad car in 1990. Only problem was that Paul Dale was never an armed robbery squad detective, and in 1990 was a 20-year-old junior constable, nowhere near the gangland action. But in Dale ?s case, the media have never let the truth get in the way of a good story. From the moment police informer Terry Hodson pointed the finger at Dale to try and weasel his way out of a life sentence on serious drug charges, the Victoria Police have pursued Dale with a vigour rarely seen. Offering millions of dollars to ?witnesses ? in return for statements, the Victoria Police have yet to convict the former decorated police officer with a single thing. For the first time, Paul Dale tells his side of the story. When you look at the story behind the story, it is almost beyond belief.… (more)
