Engrossing black humour
on 14 November 2000
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.
