But nothing could have been further from the truth. Davis switched from the Federated Malay States Police to the intelligence world, where he planned the infiltration of Chinese intelligence agents and British officers into the Malayan peninsula.

Yet Davis was more than a wartime hero. A fluent Cantonese speaker, he became an iconic figure in Malayas colonial history when during the Communist Emergency he confronted Chin Peng, leader of the Communist Party. Margaret Shennan uncovers the radical and temperamental man whose propensity to challenge the decisions of his superior officers did not always make him an easy comrade, but whose courage and determination to get the job done won him loyalty and respect.

Illustrated with Daviss personal photographs, this is a story which truly deserves to be told.
