Leslie Charteris wrote nineteen Saint novels (in English; there are some that were written in French) between 1928 (MEET THE TIGER!) and 1980 (SALVAGE FOR THE SAINT, based on the two-part RETURN OF THE SAINT episode Collision Course). The more recent titles were often based on screenplays for the Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy episodes. While Charteris did not write the screenplays himself, he did adapt the novels and anthologies.

Most recently, Edgar Award winning American author Burl Barer, who compiled the reference book THE SAINT: A COMPLETE HISTORY, has produced two more Saint novels. CAPTURE THE SAINT is the first original Saint novel since SALVAGE THE SAINT and is approved by the Charteris estate. It is available exlcusively through the Saint Club. THE SAINT is Burl's novelization of the recent Phil Noyce/Val Kilmer/Paramount film.

In the late 1920s, teenage Charteris had written five novels, one of which was the Saint's MEETTHE TIGER! All of his leading characters were similar and, rather than just inventing different characteristics for each new hero, he decided to settle on just one hero and write adventures around him. Fortunately for today's Saint fans Charteris settled on Simon Templar.
