Hard Frost | [R. D. Wingfield]

Hard Frost

Detective InspectorJjack Frost knelt down beside the tiny body. Who did this to you, sonny? he asked, his face tight with compassion. The boy was eight years old, bound and gagged, and stripped naked. He had been dead for some seven or eight hours. Frost should have been on holiday, he had sneaked back into the station late at night to help himself to some of Divisional Commander Mullett's cigarettes and this case had been dumped on him as no other officers were available. And then another boy is reported missing.

Publisher's Summary

Detective Inspector Jack Frost knelt down beside the tiny body. Who did this to you, sonny? he asked, his face tight with compassion. The boy was eight years old, bound and gagged, and stripped naked. He had been dead for some seven or eight hours.

Frost should have been on holiday, he had sneaked back into the station late at night to help himself to some of Divisional Commander Mullett's cigarettes and this case had been dumped on him as no other officers were available. And then another boy is reported missing. The following day, the ransom demand: £250,000 or the boy dies like the first.

Coarse and insubordinate, fearless and intuitive, D.I. Jack Frost stumbles from crisis to crisis as he tries to cope with a child-stabbing pervert, the discovery of a decomposing body in a coal bunker, a suspicious suicide, an equally suspicious burglary and the abduction of a teenage girl.

    "Great story, shame about the narration"
    What did you like best about Hard Frost? What did you like least?

    R.D. Wingfield builds a great story and has the ability to keep the reader/listener interested throughout. For anyone familiar with the David Jason characterisation of Frost, the language and style may come as a shock.


    What other book might you compare Hard Frost to, and why?

    A very similar style to other R.D. Wingfield books which can mean the storyline becomes rather predictable.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Robin Browne?

    Anyone - Stephen Thorne, who narrates Winter Frost is far better although not perfect. David Jason would be the natural choice although the language wouldn't really fit with his persona.


    Could you see Hard Frost being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Already has been.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is far more "gritty" than might be expected by those familiar with the TV series but once that shock is over, it is a good read.
