Winter Frost by R. D. Wingfield

Book Description

"Forst is a splendid creation, a cross between Rumpole and Columbo". (The Times). 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; there is an armed robbery at a local minimart and a ram raid at a jewellers. But Detective Inspector Jack Frost's main concern is for the safety of a missing eight-year-old, and soon after another girl is reported missing, her body is found ...raped and strangled. Then Frost's prime suspect hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for driving him to suicide. Coarse, insubordinate and fearless, DI Jack Frost is in serious trouble.

Killing Frost by R. D. Wingfield Killing Frost, Paperback (October 2008)

On a rainy night in Denton, Detective Inspector Jack Frost is called to the site of a macabre discovery in the woods - that of a human foot. Meanwhile a multiple rapist is on the loose, the local supermarket reports poisoned stock and a man claims to have cut his wife up into little pieces, yet can't recall where he hid them.

Hard Frost by R. D. Wingfield Hard Frost, Paperback (May 1997)

A young boy is found dead in a rubbish heap, suffocated and with one finger cut off. Another boy is missing. A psychopath is stabbing babies as they lie sleeping in their cots.

Night Frost by R. D. Wingfield Night Frost, Paperback (January 1997)

Detective Inspector Jack Frost is crumpled, slapdash and foul-mouthed as ever. He tries to cope despite inadequate back-up, but there is never enough time; the unsolved crimes pile up. So Frost has to take risks, knowing that his Divisional Commander will throw him to the wolves if anything goes wrong. And for Frost, things always go wrong.

Touch of Frost by R. D. Wingfield Touch of Frost, Paperback (October 1996)

Detective Inspector Jack Frost, officially on duty, is nevertheless determined to sneak off to a colleague's leaving party.

UK Kirkus Review » As so often, when a literary detective is given a television incarnation, the real strength of a writer's work is how strongly the original characterization remains in the reader's mind when encountering a new book. Such is Wingfield's skill, that we barely think of David Jason in this exemplary new offering, with his less than polished detective protagonist encountering a curious rash of crimes. Local prostitutes are being murdered by what looks like a serial killer, while a demolished garden shed reveals a long-buried skeleton. Armed robberies, ramraids and burglaries also exercise Frost's fertile brain, but his main concern is for the safety of a missing schoolgirl. And when the strangled body of another little girl is found, Frost starts to make connections. One of the most eventful of Wingfield's sublime police procedurals, this will keep enthusiasts more than happy. (Kirkus UK)
