Description

'Forst is a splendid creation, a cross between Rumpole and Columbo' The Times Denton is having more than its fair share of crime. A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man demolishing his garden shed uncovers a long-buried skeleton; there is an armed robbery at a local minimart and a ram raid at a jewellers. But Detective Inspector Jack Frost's main concern is for the safety of a missing eight-year-old, and soon after another girl is reported missing, her body is found . . . raped and strangled. Then Frost's prime suspect hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for driving him to suicide. Coarse, insubordinate and fearless, DI Jack Frost is in serious trouble.show more

Back cover copy

'Frost is a splendid creation, a cross between Rumpole and Colombo' Marcel Berlins, The Times Denton is having more than its fair share of crime. A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man demolishing his garden shed uncovers a long buried skeleton; an armed robbery at a local mini-mart; a ram-raid at a jewellers and a series of burglaries. But Detective Inspector Jack Frost's main concern is for the safety of a missing schoolgirl. Nine weeks ago, Vicky Stuart, eight years old, didn't return home from school and in spite of exhaustive enquiries and extensive searches, has never been seen since. Another little girl from the same school is reported missing. Her body is found...raped and strangled. Frost's prime suspect, strongly protesting his innocence, hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for driving him to suicide. Subsequent evidence points to the man's innocence. Coarse, insubordinate and fearless, DI Jack Frost is in serious trouble. 'If you enjoy crime fiction at all, read this. If you've never read a crime novel in your life, start with this one' Morning Star 'R.D. Wingfield has created possibly the most accurate picture of police work in crime fiction today...Winter Frost is an absolute cracker. Maybe not what you would expect if you have only met Frost on television, but a must for any crime fan worth their salt'Mike Ripley, Sherlock Holmesshow more
