The Complete Dangerous Davies

Dangerous Davies is a humorous character who lives in a world that is mostly good, somewhat sad, a bit evil, and almost entirely beyond his control. His philosophising Welsh drinking companion Mod, his outsized and unruly dog Kitty, his quarrels with his landlady Mrs Fulljames - none of these bodes well for the efficient solving of crimes and outwitting of villainy. His boyhood in an orphanage is evoked in This Time Next Week, published in 1964. The small fry of petty larceny and minor disturbances in the backwaters of north-west London are his daily round. Since then, Leslie Thomas has written over twenty other novels including Tropic of Ruislip, The Magic Army, The Dearest and the Best, The Loves and Journeys of Revolving Jones, Arrivals and Departures, three books featuring Dangerous Davies and, most recently, Running Away. His philosophising Welsh drinking companion Mod, his outsized and unruly dog Kitty, his quarrels with his landlady Mrs Fulljames - none of these bodes well for the efficient solving of crimes and outwitting of villainy. But life must go on and people must take comfort where they find it.

The story of collaboration is brought up to date, assessing both the legacy and its contemporary parallels. The small fry of petty larceny and minor disturbances in the backwaters of north-west London are his daily round.

Briefly: a down and out, sad sack of a detective in the British police force bumbles his way through a series of crimes he is not supposed to investigate on orders from his chief.

When Dangerous is beaten up, yet again, at a European Friendship dinner dance he reluctantly takes some sick leave. As much as I am indebted to Leslie Thomas for imagining this character, I really can't recommend the last two books. At sixteen he became a reporter, before going on to do his national service.
