Dangerous Davies and the lonely heart by Leslie Thomas( Book )

"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."--P. [4] of cover

"It rained a lot, and steamed when the sun shone. It was always hot. But it was safe ..." One way or another the Communist guerrilla war in Malaya kept a whole British army occupied from 1948 until 1952. They were the virgin soldiers. Idle, homesick, afraid, bored, oversexed and undersatisfied. A young virgin like Brigg had to grab his fun while and where he could -in the Liberty Club, in juicy Lucy's flat or up in Phillipa's room - in one frantic attempt at living before he died or was demobbed
