In Winter Frost, the fifth novel to date in the Frost series, a serial killer surfaces in Denton and seems to be a two-headed monster, killing both prostitutes and abducting small girls. Frost has an army of suspects rising from every gutter, from the simpering Charlie Weaver, who loves his mother so much, to the sex- obsessed local dentist and the foul-mouthed taxi driver. As Frost chases up a succession of blind alleys, his own position on the Force hangs in the balance. Will he be able to find the killer before he loses his own job? And will Frost's own cock-eyed attitude towards women--not to mention his tolerance of a plainly intolerable colleague- -mean that he'll miss a vital clue?
Wingfield's quick- fire style must owe something to the years that he worked as a writer for the Carry On films. He's one of the few crime writers who can employ a humour that takes none of the impact from his stunning set pieces of horror. -- Elizabeth McGregor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“Frost is a splendid creation, a cross between Rumpole and Columbo.”
Marcel Berlins, The Times on Night Frost
“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 on Hard Frost
Just wonderful as always. I love these books. Even though they contain macabre crimes, in a strange way they have a feelgood factor, because of Frost's humour. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Fay88
This is the third Frost book I have read. A great story, but after a while I got rather put off by the far to frequent sexual references. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Unknown
