Saint in the Shower.

Summer is a good season for some light reading. I have been going through some of the old "Saint" stories, which were all the rage when I was a boy. They still are escapist and amusing, but do not seem so real, given the passage of years.
The "Saint" was always an original smoothie. When disturbed at night by the baddies, he often had time for a shower before knocking them to pieces. I have always suspected that Leslie Charteris, the author, intended to have a bit of fun at our expense. He made the "Saint" have and enjoy ice cold showers. I never fell into the trap of trying to copy this fad, even when I was a fan.
