The Saint on the Radio by Ian Dickerson

The Saint on the Radio by Ian DickersonGot this from NetGalley on a whim. I really enjoy the radio show and was shocked to read (from the blurb) that there were more Saints than just Vincent Price. Also shocking? How readable this book is. The author clearly did a lot of research for this book but states his shortcomings up front (though some of it is a little flippant...)
Combining the stories of Leslie Charteris (the original "Saint" author), many of the writers, and even the show itself, the writing flows smoothly.
I was disappointed at first that there weren't synopses of the episodes. But those come eventually... and start to get a bit tedious. But with two full scripts and lots of information, this is obviously a labor of love.
