Publisher's Summary

May, 1982. Britain celebrates the sinking of the Belgrano, Jimmy Savile has the run of the airwaves and Denton Police Division welcomes its first black policeman, DC Waters -- recently relocated from Bethnal Green. While the force is busy dealing with a spate of local burglaries, the body of fifteen-year-old Samantha Evans is discovered in woodland next to the nearby railway track. Then a fifteen-year-old boy is found dead on Denton's golf course, his organs removed. Detective Sergeant Jack Frost is sent to investigate -- a welcome distraction from troubles at home. And when the murdered boy's sister goes missing, Frost and Waters must work together to find her... before it's too late.

Disappointing

I had hoped the author would capture R.D. Wingfield's style. Jack is a little cruder, not quite as likable. Though he was no angel in the original series, he wasn't as boorish. The relationship with his wife is different as well and does not ring true.

Despite all the disappointments, the story is similar to originals with meshing story lines as well as good character development for supporting players. So overall a decent listen.

Frosty Relationships...

If you enjoy the original Frost books by R.D. Wingfield, you will probably really enjoy this book. The narrator is excellent (the same as for the original books, I think), Frost is his usual disorganized and yet brilliant self, and the writing is very well-done.

In this book - the second written by Wingfield's successor, James Henry - we see Frost's conflicted relationship with his wife and with PC Clarke; we see the friction between him and Mullet; and we see the good rapport Frost seems to have with most unlikely people - felons and coppers alike.

This was a fun listen, with parts that made me laugh, and did not get too sappy or emotional, so it stayed pretty light.

Good yarn

I like Frost and the narrator was just right for the role - unlike some of my other recent listens! Good story with lots of Frost-isms that made a few laugh out loud moments. As it wasnt written by RD Wingfield, the new author did well.

The 'Ghost' writer is better

James Henry does a decent Frost story and Stephen Thorne is the better reader..

pretty good

The story was pretty good. The hard part was the narrator didn't do a great job of differentiating between the characters. it was hard to tell who was speaking. other than that it was good.
