Book Description

7 Nov 2013 Frost 3 (Book 3)

November 1982. It's been one of the worst days of Detective Sergeant Jack Frost's life. He has buried his wife Mary, and must now endure the wake, attended by all of Denton's finest.

All, that is, except from DC Sue Clarke, who has been summoned to the discovery of a human foot in a farmer's field. And things get worse. Local entrepreneur Harry Baskin is shot inside his club and a valuable painting goes missing.

As the week goes on, a cyclist is found dead in suspicious circumstances. Frost is on the case, but another disaster - one he is entirely unprepared for - is about to strike . . .

Book Description

The third book in the bestselling prequel series, starring R. D. Wingfield's unforgettable creation Jack Frost - younger, greener, and just as uncouth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspector Frost chases criminals in 1982 7 Nov 2013
By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
The year is 1982, the place Denton, England and a foot is found in a nearby field while Frost buries his wife Mary. As his colleagues and a large contingent of the Masons in attendance at the wake the criminals in Denton go on a crime spree. With no time to mourn the loss of his wife, a wife who by his own admission he hadn't put at the top of his priorities, Frost is soon investigating a rape at a school, the shooting of a small-time crook and coming to terms with the fact that a new computer system is being installed in Denton Police Station.

This is the third prequel that James Henry has written to the brilliant R.D. Wingfield books featuring Frost. This last one takes us up to Frost at Christmas the first in the original series. James Henry does a fantastic job of recreating Frost and the writing of R.D. Wingfield, so much so that I forget that it this isn't the original. The crimes are sufficiently bizarre enough without being unrealistic, Frost is instantly identifiable, if a little younger and the references to the England of the eighties subtly inserted. I had forgotten how Radio Rentals and Rumbelows were ubiquitous in many towns, how life before mobiles meant the police would stake out telephone boxes and that once upon a time renting a video was the height of the technological revolution.

A great read for those of us who mourn the passing of R.D. Wingfield but Frost really couldn't have been put into a safer pair of hands.

This prequel series starts with First Frost: (DI Jack Frost 1) and was followed by Fatal Frost: (DI Jack Frost 2) and both are written with the same gentle humour along to back up a great police procedural.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for my honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mission Accomplished. 20 Jan 2014
By Pigwin
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When R.D. Wingfield died in 2007 it would have been generally assumed that the Frost novels would have died with him and I was therefore intrigued when I saw that James Henry had written a prequel to the Frost series of detective stories featuring a young detective Frost. Writing a prequel to a much-loved and well-established series is an ambitious and challangeing task for any author but James Henry has more than risen to the task. I was pleasantly surprised to see how the author had captured the essence of Frost in his early years in Denton, managing to encapsulate all of his foibles, dishevelled appearance, tasteless and inopportune jokes, combined with a maverick attitude to the job.

This is the third novel in the prequel series and opens on the day that Frost buries his young wife, Mary and, needless to say he gets drunk at the wake and manages to insult Mary's family. As in the Wingfield books, Frost though flawed has always had the affection, loyalty and support of most of his colleagues who look after him on this most tragic of days.

However, life still goes on in Denton and there are many cases for the police to solve such as body parts turning up on a farm, a nightclub owner being shot at outside his club and a hit and run resulting in the death of a local paperboy.

There is also the added complication of DC Sue Clarke's pregnancy as Frost just might be the father. There are many other strands to the crimes taking place in Denton and Henry skillfully weaves them together. The long suffering Inspector Mullet has much to keep him awake at night, not least having the onus on him to promote Frost!

I enjoyed this book just as much as the two earlier novels by James Henry, i.e.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very busy Frost 13 July 2014
By Panda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not enjoy this one as much as James Henry's first two, but it was quite readable but I found it a bit plodding, and Frost's humour did not come through at all to me, but I did finish it, which says something

2.0 out of 5 stars TOO MUCH GOING ON 14 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
Could not get into and enjoy the book and the ending didn't tie everything up.I felt cheated.About 7 or 8 crimes happening at once.
Basically several bent business men with fingers in many pies--i did not really care about the "goings on".

Ok there was some humour and Frost was entertaining in his personal life but ultimately --2 stars.
