"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.

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)
