Morning Frost | [James Henry]

Morning Frost

November 5th, 1982. It's been one of the worst days of Detective Sergeant Jack Frost's life. He has buried his wife Mary, and must now endure the wake, attended by all of Denton's finest. All, that is, apart from DC Sue Clark, who spends the night chasing a bogus tip-off, before being summoned to the discovery of a human foot. And the night gets worse. Local entrepreneur Harry Baskin is shot inside his club, an off-licence is set on fire and a famous painting goes missing. And Superintendant Mullett's attempts to join the Freemasons are being rudely thwarted.

    Story
    "Not as good as the original"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator was very good, it was the story that lacked. If the author(s) had not changed facts from Frost's life as described in the original R.D. Wingfield Frost books, it would have been much better.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Henry again?

    Yes. I would probably still buy their work. The story was okay for detective fiction, it just wasn't really a Frost book.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Thorne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first one I've listened to.


    What character would you cut from Morning Frost?

    None. They all served a purpose.

    Really enjoyed this audiobook, with a great story and excellently narrated.
    These are definitely getting better and look forward to the next one.

    Story
    "Not the best entry in series"
    What was most disappointing about James Henry’s story?

    The plot line here doesn't quite match up with what we see at the start of the tv series. Jack's wife dies at the end of the first episode, and this is meant to be a prequel. Unless the author intended it to take place between the first and second episode, it doesn't quite work out, and feels out of place. I didn't finish this, I got a couple of hours in before having to stop as the above point about timing placing in the series put me off. I know it based around the funeral of Jack's wife, but we hear too much about the wife in this - given how little even in the first episodes of the tv show we hear about her.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Thorne’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're a die hard fan, and are happy to ignore any issues around when it's set, or are a casul fan, this is for you. However, I couldn't finish it.
