Publisher's Summary

Denton, 1981. Britain is in recession, the IRA is becoming increasingly active, and the country’s on alert for an outbreak of rabies. Detective Sergeant Jack Frost is working under his mentor, DI Bert Williams, and coping badly with his increasingly strained marriage.

Superintendent Stanley Mullett has been at Denton for only six months and is desperately trying to restore order within the chronically depleted ranks while refurbishing the dilapidated Eagle Lane HQ. But DI Williams is nowhere to be seen, and DI Allen has failed to return from his walking holiday. So when a 12-year-old girl goes missing from a department-store changing room, Mullett has no option but to put DS Frost in charge of the investigation.

    "Made me laugh out loud!"

    I'd forgotten just how different things were in the 70's and 80's - this was an entertaining reminder. A touch predictable but thoroughly entertaining. Just try not to think of David Jason while you listen to it and you'll get on fine,

    Story
    "First book Of Frost"

    A very good start to the new Frost by the author "James Henry".
    I could picture David Jason portraying the grumpy police sergeant and the characters were very good and believable.Wrapped up in a story of murder and mayhem.
    However I am no way a prude but there is no need for the profanities that appear late in the book,they seem to jar,just not needed or wanted.
    But I will definately download his 2nd book and look forward to hearing more new stories of Frost.
    Definitely recommend.

    "Excellent"

    Very cleverly the author copied the style of R.D. Wingfield to create a prequel to the highly enjoyable Frost series. It has the same pace and humour. Stephen Thorne is one of my favorite narrators and his delivery of this book and the regular Frost series (except for two books, which is a shame) is spot on! Bring on the next installment, with Stephen as the narrator!

    "R D Wingfield...as usual at its best."

    As with all Frost novels, there is little left out, great listening.
    Looking forward to more like it.

    Story
    "unsuitable for purpose"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    good story, excellent reader. unfortunately I prefer to transfer books to a memory stick to listen to in my car and this one refuses to transfer.


    What did you like best about this story?

    sticks close to r d wingfield's successful format.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Thorne’s performances?

    heard a lot of this reader's performances, never disappointed


    Did First Frost inspire you to do anything?

    yes to collect them all, henry and wingfield.


    Any additional comments?

    disappointed that the book seems to contain some sort of encryption. if this is to prevent conversion an sale by audible customers then i can understand it but in my case i feel i am being disadvantaged.
