#1. Dangerous Davies - The Last Detective
(1976) [8 hours 43 mins] Read by Alexander John
Davies is a low-ranked CID officer in the London borough of Willesden. He is nicknamed "Dangerous" ironically because he is the member of the department least likely to get into a dangerous situation.
He is called "The Last Detective"
from his superior's assessment of him as "the last detective you'd ever send out on a case". Despite this, Davies is by no means a poor detective, and although he can take longer than his colleagues,
and is dogged by bad luck, he does usually "get his man" in the end. In the first book we find him drifting into the 25 year-old unsolved case of the disappearance of young Celia Norris, a local girl with a dark side.
With his friend, the perpetually unemployed and well-read welshman Mod Lewis (he spends all his time at the library to save on heating) he tracks down the culprit, collecting plenty of cuts, bumps and bruises along the way at the hands of the local villains.
