Davies, John. John Davies was created by Margot Bennett and appeared in Time to Change Hats (1945) and Away Went the Little Fish (1946).

John Davies is a Rootless Veteran. After World War Two ends he is at loose ends and is out of work, so he decides to become a private detective. Unfortunately, he has no practical experience at that, only in soldiering. Davies writes to his friends, looking for work, and one responds, explaining that “A woman called Death has been leaving visiting cards.” This propels Davies into a career as an amateur p.i., to which he applies his native cleverness and the skills he learned during the war.
