    1 thought on “Dangerous Davies, the Last Detective

    1. After watching The Last Detective on Netflix, I decided I had to read the books Naturally, the books are different than the television series but that didn t distract me from the stories I kind of liked the fact that Dangerous Davies wife wasn t this gorgeous thing and that he lived in a boarding house with his wife albeit in separate rooms and Mod, which is just as funny in the books as he is on the series I enjoyed the mysteries in the books I purchased the complete series of books in one on K [...]

    2. The book was fun to read, good pace I now look forward to the others in the series.The Dangerous character is a combination of R.D Wingfield Jack Frost and M.C Beaton Hamish Macbeth.

    3. This book is British through and through The humor must sometimes be taken with a grain of salt or just utter bewilderment, if you re an American reader Dangerous Davies is supposed to be slow on the uptake and not very good at detecting He and his disreputable overcoat remind me greatly of Colombo, and his wrinkled raincoat who also appears to be not very bright But, just like Columbo, Dangerous gets his man in the end Along the way, there is a hunt for a returning low life who is planning new [...]

    4. Named dangerous because he was said to be harmless and he was known by the London police as the last detective because he was never sent unless it was a very risky job or there was no one else He was a drunk, frequently laughed at, often foolish but he never lost hope and always felt that one day he would redeem himself Among his many shortcomings was that he was never suspicious or cautious and got beaten up on a regular basis When interviewing a suspect most often he was the one answering all [...]

    5. First book in the series The main character is a lost, frequently baffled, frequently drunk detective with questionable attributes for being a detective His fellow detectives while calling him Dangerous Davies consider him harmless and his boss only gives him assignments if no one else is around or they are risky But one thing Dangerous is also is patient and dogged Lots of fun characters including his dog and car I d seen a movie pilot for the TV series which really really followed this book an [...]

    6. Charming Brirish series about a sort of bungling Detective I got hooked on the TV series on Netflix, and decided to read the books This is number one in the series Beautifully written A camper, described as listing listlessly in a muddy field Not a thriller Relaxingbandva pleasure from beginning to end Not noir Great character Fun

    7. Loved it, even though I d already seen the BBC t.v series and kind of knew how the mystery would turn out I still enjoyed it for the writing, humor, and glimpse into British life I plan to get the other 2 books in series, though the library doesn t have themI ll have to go to Powell s or Murder by the Book.

    8. Sad sack smart detective solves a case everyone else has given up on If you ve seen the TV series overall japes with Mod, violence to Dangerous person, and his ex wife lives in the boarding house not in Dangerous room.

    9. This has some amusing scenarios but the overallcharacter of the last detective is not all thatbumbling, and there is too much of tangentsthat make for quite a bit of uninteresting reading.This is very old fashioned and very contrivedso proceed at your own risk.

    10. This book was first published in 1976 and what a gem of a read The writing is sharp, hilarious, poignant and the character development of Davies and Mod in particular are excellent If you like the typical British mystery, I recommend this Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    11. Quirky and endearing Hapless police constable Dangerous Davies always thinks the best of people and never gives up In this story he solves a 25 year old cold murder case solely through persistence and imagination I thoroughly enjoyed this character and found the various characters well drawn and believable.

    12. Delightful Dickensian, not in scope, but in the motley crew of colorful characters Dangerous Davies is certainly not dangerousexcept to himself an inept detective who ultimately gets the job done.

    13. 4 stars is probably a little generous but Dangerous Davies is a reasonable crime story written with an amusing slant I am likely to read another from this series.

    14. An entertaining and mildly humorous detective story I admit to being a bit disappointed however I recently read Thomas s Virgin Soldiers trilogy and, in my view, this is not of the same calibre.

    15. An old series, but new to me, and one I plan to follow I love a hapless detective who, between bouts of drinking and getting beaten up, somehow manages to solve a mystery.

    16. Enjoyed reading this but found the relationship between the detective and Josie disturbing Dangerous Davies is definitely a flawed character

    17. Very different from the television series of the same name, but still brilliant Wish my library had of this series available.
