Product Description

Review

"Crime pick of the year. Darker, funnier and more violent than the television adaptation, but just as high quality" (Daily Telegraph)

"Inspector Jack Frost (is) deplorable yet funny, a comic monster on the side of the angels" (Guardian)

"What impresses me most is the extraordinarily vivid interplay between the police characters. Frost himself is splendidly drawn" (The Times)

"Fast paced and wryly amusing, Frost's latest outing is a delight from start to finish, a unique and unlikely blend of humour and tragedy. More please" (Val McDermid Manchester Evening News) --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Book Description

The magnificently tasteless Inspector Frost muddles his way through a gruelling assortment of crimes. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

I have never been so into a book before. I just couldn't put it down.
If you are someone who enjoys a good murder mystery and you want to be transported into the book and feel like you are helping solve the crime then this the book for you.
I really enjoyed this book, and I will be getting the others in the series.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another good read in the Frost series. Rather more earthy than the television adaptation but fast with lots of intertwined plots.

Offensive but very funny, Jack Frost is a brilliant character. This book is unputdownable. Much better than the televised series. I cant wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Jason is Jack Frost 29 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Ex comedian David Jason has got the audio picture of this down at heel detective off to perfection.As usual this is a multi-plot story that unwinds slowly,twisting in its usuall manner. David Jason makes Mr Frost a nicer figure than in the book, and the plot is far deeper than the TV presentation. For those who like audio books, David Jasons, addaptation is a must.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard Frost 28 May 2014

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the others. Perhaps it was one too many about Jack Frosts careless attitude towards discipline in his role as Police Officer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty and very realistic 27 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I have downloaded to my Kindle,The story follows D.I Frost as he first investigates a murder and then two kidnappings and another murder.Despite having to cope with a Superintendant who is more of a hinderance than a help and a rotten partner Frost solves these cases and some others which occur as the story progresses.D.I Frost has very little time for proper police procedure which includes paperwork which piles up in his office.He often takes over other officers cases but despite this and being foul mouthed everybody still likes him apart from Mr Mullett.The storyline is easy to follow and is not over the top like some other murder mysteries.

Typical Frost, numerous cases yet he solves them all in his own bumbling way, despite all the tales of his uselessness
