‘A funny, frantic, utterly refreshing brew’ – Sunday Telegraph
Detective Inspector Jack Frost, officially on duty, is nevertheless determined to sneak off to a colleague's leaving party. But first the corpse of a well-known local junkie is found blocking the drain of a Denton public lavatory - and then the daughter of a wealthy businessman is reported missing.
And now a wave of crime threatens to submerge sleepy Denton.
A robbery occurs at the town's notorious strip joint, the pampered son of a local MP is suspected of a hit-and-run offence and, to top it all, a multiple rapist is on the loose. But the manic Frost manages to assure his superior that all is under control.
Now he has only to convince himself...
"A funny, frantic, utterly refreshing brew"
"What impresses most is the extraordinarily vivid interplay between the police characters. Frost himself is spendidly drawn"
