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...

Would recommend to everyone who likes rumbled cops.
However not suitable for young teens or grandmothers or maybe great aunts.
The narrator's voice for Frost is terrible, he sounds like a whining child. I listened to half the book then had to stop.
A huge disappointment, I'd been waiting for unabridged audiobooks of the Frost books for ages, but this one is unlistenable.
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
"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.
"narration very poor and not reflective of the char"
yes to author no to narrator
don't know as couldn't finish the book
My whole enjoyment was spoilt by the narration gave up one third in to the story because of this
