    One thought on “Dangerous In Love”

    1. Dangerous Davies isn't your typical hero; he's not on the fast-track for promotion, and in many ways he is much like the peripheral characters whose apparent incompetence is the mirror opposite of the hero. Dangerous is hardly a stereotype, however - he might be clumsy and cursed with bad luck, but unlike the stereotype, he is not a fool.The first book in the series introduced us to Dangerous; the second occurs some ten-fifteen years later; he is still a DC, and he has the instincts and empathy [...]

    2. I picked this up from a hotel’s random bookshelf because I’d seen and liked the TV series, but expected the book to be a bit dated. It is in a way, in that computers are new and no one has mobiles, but the central character is timeless enough. The downtrodden Detective Davies, still a constable at 50+ and known as Dangerous because he is nothing of the sort, is a thoroughly decent chap who wants to get at the truth – in this case, why an old man should have drowned in the canal when the t [...]

    3. A mildly entertaining book - 2nd in this series - about a rather haphazard detective. I found the characters rather skimpy, the plot over-elaborate and the humour somewhat forced. Having recently read Leslie Thomas's excellent "Virgin Soldiers" trilogy I am possibly being over-critical of the Dangerous Davies series. Suffice to say that, in my view, these books fall well below the standard set by the Virgin Soldiers books.

    4. If you haven't read this and you like English detectives, read it. Its very enjoyable. A very different sort of hero. Leslie Thomas has been a bit forgotten and he shouldn't have been. He's got a very good comic touch.
