Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

Wingfield writes the mystery/police procedural series featuring Detective Inspector Jack Frost, dramatized for television in the series A Touch of Frost (seen in America on the Arts & Entertainment cable channel). This novel, Wingfield's fourth book in the series, is read by British actor and announcer Robin Browne, who skillfully imitates, for the benefit of the television series' fans, the voice and accents of actor David Jason, who portrays Frost on TV. The novel finds the insubordinate, coarse, yet intuitive Frost stumbling from crisis to crisis with a caseload that simultaneously includes the murder of a burglar-blackmailer, a child-murder and related child-abduction, the kidnapping and ransom of a local teenager, a child-stabbing pervert, and the murder of three children by their unbalanced mother, all while under severe time constraints and while dealing with personnel pressures within the department. The portrayal of the Denton police force, especially the dialog and interplay among characters, rings true, depressingly so at times. The novel is essential for all mystery collections.AKristen L.

Review

"What impresses me most is the extraordinarily  vivid interplay between the police characters. Frost  himself is splendidly drawn." -- The  Times, London. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frost turns up the heat Nov. 11 1998
Format:Paperback
Jack Frost is not the person you would invite to dinner with friends you are trying to impress but he does have endearing qualities that not only make him a good detective, but wit that many a stand up comedian would be proud of. In the latest Frost series Jack is called from leave to find a missing boy and along the way has murder, and fraud to deal with. The story moves along at great pace with Mullet playing two ends against the middle as usual while Jack gets an old foe who loathes him to assist in the crime spree and Jack of course turns this to his own advantage.. There is also a new female kid on the block who has delusions of grandeur which are repelled by the male chauvanism that pervades in the police station. This is a great read and one that will make you laugh aloud from time to time whilst keeping your attention to the job at hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frost keeps up the good work Oct. 1 1998
Format:Paperback
People who did not enjoy any of the previous stories about Jack Frost probably won't like this one either. For the rest of us, it's a continuation of one of the best detective-story-series ever. Superintendent Mullett is as much of a pig as ever (boy I am glad he's not my boss!!) and Frost also gets himself a new archnemesis. Like in the previous books, there's a lot going on at the same time. The main crime is the kidnapping of a young boy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great police procedural Jan. 25 2008
By Evelina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
if you like british police procedurals, this is for you. I am sorry that there are not more books about Frost. My only reservation about this is that it involves kidnapping and mistreatment of children. Some parts were hard to read because of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved This Series from Amazon Dec 31 2011
By Barbara P. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have now read all six of the Frost series. I just loved them and hated to finish. Each book is really of series of crime stories pulled together and finally resolved by the overworked, unkempt and unruly but canny detective inspector Frost in inhospitable weather, hence the titles. Christmas Frost is really the first of the series; after that, or even though that, the order really makes no difference.

I have always thought the TV series was good but the books are even better. I honestly couldn't put it down once I started reading it - in fact I read three Frost books one after the other and was thoroughly exhausted! It is such a pleasure to find an author who is so "un-put-downable". And such a shame to know that there won't be any more.
