Another unputdownable effort. I'm working my way through the sadly small number of Frost books, amazed at the sheer pace of the action. Don't these people ever sleep? Mind you a copper's life is a particularly busy one in Denton. There must be more crime here per square inch than Oxford and L.A. put together! Wingfield cares little for political correctness - although no racism so far - and is not afraid to show police personnel making jokes and coarse remarks near to corpses, rape victims or witnesses, which I am sure is the reality. The reader doesn't have time to take offence though because in no time we're off down another dark alleyway!
