Better even than the TV series,
This review is from: A Touch Of Frost: (DI Jack Frost Book 2) (Paperback)
Having read the Morse novels, I moved on to Frost - and it's interesting to compare the two. The Morse of the books is much like the Morse of TV - but Frost on the page is more chaotic, more bawdy and more jaded than on the small screen. (Supt. Mullett, however, is the same in both and TV's DS George Toolan seems to be DS Arthur Hanlon in the books.)
The trademark storylines are all here: multiple cases, Frost multi-tasking haphazardly between them, running on instinct with peerless street-knowledge and putting together the loose ends that others don't. Frost may be disorganised but nobody beats him for serendipity.
This novel is a real page-turner (they all are :-). If you've seen the series and want to read the books, start right here!
