A Touch Of Frost (Inspector Frost #2)
Frost hates doing any sort of formal report. In fact, he hates it so much that he’ll take on an unreasonable amount of additional work to avoid the inevitable paperwork that w ...more
Jack Frost is a tough and rude detective and does it all his way, but has he come a cropper? Stars Derek Martin and June Brown.
Dishevelled, disorganized Inspector Jack Frost is more a gambler than a hound dog or a Sherlock. He has a gift for flushing out his quarry. He enrages his bosses but they can't get rid of him since he is the case solver.
Character interplay and dialog is very funny. I love British mild profanity.
I had it in a list to order from the library when I noticed that the book was pulled from the library system. None of the others, just this one. Later that afternoon, my wife said that she'd seen a Frost book in the giveaway bin and had grabbed it for me. Turned out it was the same book that I'd seen taken out of circulation.

As in the first book I ended up liking the new sidekick, Webster. As in the first book I was first annoyed by the sidekick's attitude towards Frost and his approach to police work. Webster is doubly arrogant--thinks he's too good for Denton Division AND is a "fallen" man. However, I believe he does change his mind about Frost.
Frost continues to be coarse, but ...more
I read the first in the series a while ago, and was keen to see what hijinks Mr Frost could get up to this time out. It’s more of the same, of course, Frost paired up with a younger partner who gets frustrated at his lacksadaisical ways but is ultimately impressed when the mysteries are solved.
There’s something about the way Wingf ...more
The sleepy English town of Denton has never known a crime wave like this--a robbery at a notorious strip joint, a hit-and-run whose chief suspect is the pampered son of a local MP, the kidnapping of a wealthy businessman's daughter and a series of violent rapes. Detective Jack Frost strives to solve his caseload with typical aplomb.
However this was actually the first Frost book I ever read probably about twenty years ago but I did not remember much of the story though I did remember some of the things which happened. To be honest some of the characters and events did not quite ring true with me but the story rolls a ...more
