‘Possibly the most accurate picture of police work in crime fiction today… An absolute cracker’ – Mike Ripley
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.
Frost may be coarse, insubordinate and fearless. But he’s also in serious trouble.
Frost is a splendid creation, a cross between Rumpole and Colombo
