Unfortunately, the publisher provided NO information on the product page about which books were included in this Kindle set.

As it turns out, it appears to be a reprint of a paperback anthology that came out in the UK in the 1990s, BEFORE the fourth and final "Dangerous Davies" book was published.

So, this is NOT a complete set. It contains:

1. Dangerous Davies: the Last Detective
2. Dangerous in Love
3. Dangerous by Moonlight

But it does NOT contain "Dangerous Davies and the Lonely Heart" (1998).

You'd think that with the new technology, and with 13+ years to realize there was a fourth volume, that the publisher could have actually released a COMPLETE set. But no.

Greatly enjoyed these three mysteries -- they are ruefully funny as well as truly intriguing and capture the atmosphere of a a gritty West London suburb very well. Dangerous Davies, the rumpled and somewhat battered detective constable of the title, is a loveable character, who is truly good and kind as well as truly in a muddle most of the time. I came to like his feckless sidekick and perpetually unemployed drinking buddy, and also his lovely West Indian girlfriend. These are people most of the world marginalizes, who deserve the spotlight Leslie Thomas gives them. Nice work!

I am a bit of a Leslie Thomas fan so when I saw the complete Dangerous Davies I jumped at it. Unfortunately it only has three of Dangerous' adventures. I enjoyed them nonetheless and it is better value than buying the three titles individually.

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. I was introduced to the character through the series called The Last Detective, with Peter Davison, and I think it was some of his best work. Whereas he gave the character a bit of gravitas, the original Dangerous was somewhat zany, pretty much blundering through life, but managing to make a positive impact now and again.

I read these books because of the series on Netflix, I was not disappointed. 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.

THE LAST DETECTIVE title is the result of what his chief has said several times, "You're the last detective I'd send out on any serious call".

Not earth shattering but very enjoyable.

I bought the books because after watching the series I wanted more Dangerous Davies cases. I really wanted more shows and books as well. Really enjoyable.

I got hooked on "Dangerous Davies" via the series on Netflix. I decided to read the originals. They're charming, entertaining, and the characters are wonderfully drawn. Not for fans of noir or 'hard' detective novels, but thoroughly enjoyable.
