Book Description

1 April 2000

DI Jack Frost returns once more to solve more mysteries for the village of Denton.

Winter in Denton is cold, bleak and a busy time for Detective Inspector Jack Frost whose unsolved crime figures are mounting as he struggles to bring them down in the face of manpower shortages and budget cuts.

Denton is having more than its fair share of crime. A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man demolishing his garden shed uncovers a long buried skeleton; an armed robbery at a local mini-mart; a ramraid at a jewellers and a series of burglaries.

But Frost’s main concern is for the safety of a missing schoolgirl. Nine weeks ago Vicky Stuart, eight years old, didn’t return home from school and in spite of exhaustive enquiries and extensive searches, has never been seen since. Another little girl from the same school is reported missing. Her body is found… raped and strangled.

Frost’s prime suspect, strongly protesting his innocence, hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for driving him to suicide. Subsequent evidence points to the man’s innocence.

Coarse, insubordinate and fearless, DI Jack Frost is in serious trouble.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Detective Inspector Jack Frost is a walking nightmare in a politically-correct world. Caustic, chain- smoking and unkempt, Frost does not suffer fools gladly-- least of all his boss, the nit-picking Superintendent Mullet. Yet Frost still manages to command our respect and sympathy. The award-winning success of the Touch of Frost series on TV, starring David Jason, is testimony to how much this character is loved.

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

What a marvellous character has been created in the guise of Inspector Frost.I had seen the tv series which is enjoyable but this book was my first authentic taste of the author's true creation.I don't think I have ever laughed so much whilst reading a book.I look forward to reading 'Frost at Christmas'.At Xmas of course!

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely brilliant 18 April 2001
By A Customer
As expected Mr Wingfield kept me glued to this book. Here again was the Frost from previous books and he was as entertaining and real as ever. For years now I have waited for a new Frost book and I was not disappointed. Please keep them coming, as I was bitterly disappointed when I finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 3 Nov 2003
Probably the best crime series going. I love Wingfield's books and his usual combination of dark and deadly crime and funny and lovable charecters has once again turned up trumps. From the dispicable Charlie Weaver to the bumbling DC Taffy Morgan, everything to do with this book was a joy to read. The thrilling suspense is a true page turner. Well done Mr Wingfield! Keep 'em coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars DETECTIVE FICTION SUPREME 29 Nov 1999
From the first to the last page Frost goes from strength to strength a brilliant read as good as the other four novels in the series. Wingfield weaves a complex plot and when all is revealed you cant help but be amazed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great as always! 19 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
As with all the other "Frost" books, this was one that, once I had picked it up, I couldn't put down. Having seen "A Touch of Frost" the book was even better and I could appreciate why David Jason was cast in the role. RD Wingfield is a master at his art and I long for more!
