Publisher's Summary

As plain-clothes men go, Dangerous Davies looks like a non-starter. The small fry of petty larceny and minor disturbances in the backwaters of north-west London are his daily round. 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 the outwitting of villainy.
But Davies is encouraged by his beautiful friend, Jemma, and every so often he stumbles upon something really big.

Very funny

This book is so funny, politically incorrect and a great story. You can tell that it is set a few years ago, the character of Dangerous Davies is an excellent creation. He comes across as a total pessimist but you can't help but want him to catch the person responsible for the murder. The other character's are also excellently created and feel like people we have all come across. I loved it

Well worth a listen

This book is hilarious, so much better than the TV series (which after seeing the first episode, I didn't bother with again). Brilliant to listen to on a long car journey with no children. I first listened to this book years ago on tape when it was narrated by Bernard Cribbins and I cried with laughter. Mr. Cribbins is my preferred narrator but Alexander John makes a fair job of it. The characters are wonderful and the plot darkly comical.
