really liked it

Detective Inspector Jack Frost, scruffy, insubordinate, and a general pain in the butt to his superiors, but loved by everyone else. He hated paperwork, was always behind in anything to do with NOT being in the field, and forgot all the meetings and briefings he was supposed to attend.

But with 10 days until Christmas, Frost lands a case which needs to be solved quickly. A young girl, Tracey Uphill, 8 years old, has gone missing after Sunday School, and it's bitterly cold, snowing, not weather for anyone to be out in, let alone an 8 year old child. Plus he's been assigned a new man to help out, Constable Clive Barnard, who is the Chief Constable's nephew, and that makes him even grumpier!

Frost has an uncanny ability to see through even the smallest lie from the canniest crook, and with his unique ability, things start happening. Bodies keep turning up, but he still can't find Tracey. When he finds a long buried corpse, Frost finds himself wishing he'd left things alone, until finally his career, and his life, are in great danger.

I really enjoyed this tale....certainly a different aspect to the usual Detective Inspector!
