17 editions published between 1976 and 2011 in English and held by 299 libraries worldwide
"Dangerous Davies, you understand, earned his nickname in the same way that fat men nicknamed 'Tiny' earn theirs. But while he may not inspire dread in the hearts of London's bad guys, he is nevertheless on the side of right and good, and has the copper's badge to prove it. True, he does not tend to be his superiors' first choice when it comes to detecting crime: He is known as 'the last detective' not because there are no others like him, but because he is, in nearly every instance, the last boy picked for the team (although his dog does like him). With little actual work to do, Dange has plenty of time to pick through the cases that everybody else has forgotten. And when he stumbles across a real piece of ancient history, it looks like the perfect way to keep him out of trouble, and out of the real coppers' way."--Page 4 of cover
