Winter Frost

Winter Frost

(DI Jack Frost Book 5)


‘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
