Product Description

With a healthy disregard for rules, he attracts trouble like a magnet. He has a newly assigned apprentice - the unfortunate Detective Constable Barnard - the Chief Constable¿s nephew. Fresh to the provinces, just up from London in an embarrassingly flash suit, he¿s ripe for Frost¿s satire.

©1984 R. D. Wingfield; (P)1996 Isis Publishing Ltd

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story, very well told 24 Dec 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed the book. The story is condensed and involved me. I liked the build up and the way Frost's character is portrayed, with all his flaws and weaknesses. It makes a refreshing change to have a detective who falls short of expectations of his nearest and dearest and admits to unhappy family life.

After a brilliant start and engaging first few chapters the story was dilluted and the suspense lost only to recover in the later chapters.

I did not like that the decisions that Frost took were based mostly on his intuition (no powers of deduction, alas). I did not enjoy the erotic scenes between the characters either and did find that these do not fit within the story, hence the 4 star rating.

Overall, this is a good book to curl up with at Christmas.

As soon as I starting reading I was encaptured in Detective Frosts' world. You are there everywhere he goes pleading for him to have good luck or for someone to recognize that without him Denton (his Police District) would be full of criminals, weilding knives. The story is full twists of and turns and has times of great spirit and comedy together with utter dispair. There's something humanistic about Frost. Even though his so scruffy and crude you have to admired his honesty and love his character. These words can't explain how much I enjoyed reading all of the Frost books. I can honestly say that this is one of the best books I've read. Frost is a modern Socratic figure with the power and character to find the truth under the mess of everyday life. Thank you Mr Wingfield. I wish I could give it six crowns.

I really enjoyed this book. I have always been a fan of the TV programme but Frost at Christmas has prompted me to purchase the remaining books in the series. My only regret is that there are so few!

I've seen the TV series and enjoyed it - David Jason is excellent. The books have an even grubbier "Frost" who always comes up trumps! Well plotted, strong characters and highly recommended.

By Rob Kitchin TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Frost at Christmas is the first book in this delightful six book series. Frost is introduced as a befuddled, conniving, sarcastic, and insolent cop, promoted beyond his capabilities, who tackles crimes seemingly without rhyme or reason. Every one of his actions seem designed to be as inefficient as possible and annoy those around him, yet Frost receives loyalty from most of his colleagues as, at heart, he's a lovable rogue whose two commitments are to catch the bad guys and to share any plaudits. Wingfield's characterization is excellent, with every character well penned. The writing is light and comic, the story racing along at a cracking pace. My only gripe was the improbability of the interconnections between the plotlines, which were really not needed as what ties the strands together is Frost, not spurious sub-plots. Frost at Christmas was an entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frost at christmas / audio 8 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this audiobook, because I love listening when I knit. It 100% lived up to my expectations, mainly because of the reading by David Jason. In fact, he IS Frost isn't he.. I allready knew the "plot" from tv of course, and Mr Jasons reading makes it a nice and relaxing experience, with the specific mood that's surrounds the image of "his" town Denton.

I can truly recommend this audiobook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book 3 Mar 2012
By Lowther
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book after watching some of the television series and I absoloutley loved it. I am really into crime programmes and had thoroughly enjoyed A Touch of Frost on television. I think the books are even better that the televison series and are so exciting and full of twists and turns.I have two more books to read and wish there was more. I am only 16 so i can recommend it to readers of all ages and I really look forward to reading the next two books.You should buy this book if you want a really good read it's an amazing series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frost at Christmas 18 Feb 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having watched all the tv series with David Jason I was a bit sceptical of reading the books as however well R D Wingfield described the characters I would have the TV vision of them. Need not have worried - fell straight into the book and could visualise all the individuals (except the smoking, or which there is lots).

The multi layered story flows effortlessly, the faults of Frost are described brilliantly. This is such an easy relaxing book to read the pages just fly past.

I enjoyed this so much I bought the rest of the series - just a shame so few books were wriiten.

If you want to relive the TV series buy this book and enjoy David Jason all over again!

Hope you enjoy

Frost solves multiple cases in his own pragmatic way. At times funny but no guessing the outcome too soon. Good supporting characters.
