Book Description

3 Dec 1992 DI Jack Frost (Book 9)

A serial killer is terrorizing the senior citizens of Denton, and the local police are succumbing to a flu epidemic. Tired and demoralized, the force has to contend with a seemingly perfect young couple suffering arson attacks and death threats, a suspicious suicide, burglaries, pornographic videos, poison-pen letters...

In uncertain charge of the investigations is Detective Inspector Jack Frost, crumpled, slapdash and foul-mouthed as ever. He tries to cope despite inadequate back-up, but there is never enough time; the unsolved crimes pile up and the vicious killings go on. So Frost has to cut corners and take risks, knowing that his Divisional Commander will throw him to the wolves if anything goes wrong. And for Frost, things always go wrong...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Like The TV Series... 18 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is very involving, just don't expect David Jason. Frost is scruffy and foul-mouthed, but down to earth and understanding. And he never sleeps! This was the particular book which got me into the Frost series and is probably the best. It is funny but also thrilling, especially at the end. Most recommended.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
RD Wingfield only managed a limited number of stories featuring his wonderful creation, maverick Detective Inspector "Jack" Frost and the fictional Denton police force before he died. Such a shame -these are really very well constructed books and satisfying mysteries.
Wingfield lived to see the highly successful TV series starring David Jason, but had a problem with Jason's portrayal, in the main because the TV character was totally different and quite toned down compared to the greasy, unkempt, foul-mouthed, chain-smoking policeman that Wingfield describes so well. All the outside DCs or DSs seconded (usually unwillingly) to Denton nick and placed under Inspector Frost's mantle are generally flawed or world-weary but find themselves quickly at their wits' end with their superior's antics and unorthodox policing methods.
The cackling humour within these books arises from Frost's callous disregard of the rules and his slapdash, usually disgraceful conduct, which numerous times steer him towards suspension or worse. The funniest is his relationship with the stuffy, hapless Superintendent Mullett, dubbed "Horn Rim Harry", whom Frost manages to wrong-foot on a regular basis. At times, Jack's sexist attitude and verbal crudity might prove moderately grating to current PC attitudes but given this was a prevalent attitude of the time (the Inspector is portrayed as being in his 50s when these were written in the 1990s so can therefore be reasonably expected to be entrenched in the old-fashioned attitudes and this simply adds validity to his seemingly 'disreputable' character.
All Wingfield's books are a true joy to read and if you can suspend that hovering image of the former Del-Boy (and despite the much cleaner raincoat, decent scarf and less battered hat) from your mind's eye, it remains a simply wonderful series that should not be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 19 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you can get over the misogyny and general avoidance of anything remotely pc you will love Frost. I did not try the books for ages (because of the tv series), but they really are worth reading - for the humour particularly. Don't expect realism - this is just pure fun. Night Frost is my favourite so far - the relationship with Mullet is priceless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than the TV show... 18 Nov 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was not sure if I would take to this but within 10 pages found the story and main characters fascinating. Jack Frost is a one off and in the printed word even more so than when David Jason played him on TV. Mullett I thought very like his TV actor.
The real point is that I enjoyed all the extra story and detail you get in the book and will be reading more of the books. The style of writing is easy to follow and it was difficult to put it down once I started reading. Great value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing black humour 14 Nov 2000
By SueBee
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Frost series of books are engrossing and involving, sometimes quite complicated, detective stories. Frost himself is perhaps the most sympathetic character in them, the rest are pretty awful. One gripe I have is Wingfield's treatment of women in the Frost books - they are either crumpet to be raped and/or made foul remarks about, or batty sex-starved old maids. I get the feeling the author does not like women very much. However, I shall perservere with them as I like good 'tec story. Pity about the misogyny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frost is excellent as ever 29 Jan 2014
By Robin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Highly enjoyable if you enjoy Jack Frost, on bottom [top] form as ever, his witticisms puerile and brilliant in equal measure.

I was very disappointed in this story, but maybe it is because I am such a fan of the 'Frost T.V Series', and I was expecting too much from the story???
