The Saint Goes West. Some Further Exploits Of Simon Templar.

by Leslie. Charteris

First edition. The "true" first edition as the U. S. edition precedes the U. K. edition. Review copy with publisher's slip laid-in. Fine, bright, tight copy in lightly rubbed dust jacket, with a tiny closed tear to bottom edge of front panel and a tiny closed tear to top edge of rear panel. There are three long novelettes in this book. Arizona is about a Nazi mining engineer, supposedly in the West for his health among other things. He teaches the Saint the fine art of whipping as practiced in a German concentration camp; however, the Saint has a few things up his sleeve. In Palm Springs, a millionaire playboy and his harem interrupt the Saint's vacation; therefore, he quickly puts an end to some murderous nonsense and resumes serious loafing. In Hollywood, the Saint is scheduled to star in a huge picture about his own life, but unfortunately someone has put a bullet in the producer's head. A Crime Club mystery.
