Publisher's Summary

Detective Inspector Jack Frost, officially on duty, is nevertheless determined to sneak off to a colleague's leaving party. But first the corpse of a well-known local junkie is found blocking the drain of a Denton public lavatory and then, when Frost attempts to join the revels later on, the nubile daughter of a wealthy businessman is reported missing.

Sleepy Denton has never known anything like the crime wave which now threatens to submerge it. A robbery occurs at the town's notorious strip joint, the Coconut Grove, the pampered son of a local MP is suspected of a hit-and-run offence and, to top it all, a multiple rapist is on the loose. Frost is reeling under the strain, his paperwork is still in arrears and now, more than ever, his self-righteous colleagues would love to see him sacked. But the manic Frost manages to assure his superior that all is under control. Now he has only to convince himself...

    "I really like the storyline and the reader."

    Would recommend to everyone who likes rumbled cops.
    However not suitable for young teens or grandmothers or maybe great aunts.

    "Terrible narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's voice for Frost is terrible, he sounds like a whining child. I listened to half the book then had to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    A huge disappointment, I'd been waiting for unabridged audiobooks of the Frost books for ages, but this one is unlistenable.

    "Poor narration"

    Having listened to most of the audible Frost books narrated by Stephen Thorne I was most disappointed by this narrator. His performance changed my perception of all of the characters to the point that I am now searching for another Thorne Frost performance to restore my Faith

    Story
    "Spoilt by the narrator"

    A ripping good yarn, but not the affable Jasonesk Frost. The separation of the characters through voice was not achieved as most sounded music-hall Jewish and it was difficult to tell at time which one was speaking.
