Publisher's Summary

Denton, 1984. 

After a morning’s betting at the races, bookmaker George Price is found in his car, barely alive with a bullet in his head. As he’s rushed to hospital, Detective Inspector Jack Frost and the Denton police force start their hunt for the would-be murderer. But with a long list of enemies who might want the bookie dead, the team have got their work cut out for them. And with a slew of other crimes hitting the area, from counterfeit goods to violent drugs gangs swamping Denton with cheap heroin, the stakes have never been higher. Will Frost find the answers he’s looking for before things go from bad to worse?

A poor attempt at writing Frost

I complained about the preceding Frost book and said it was the worst of the series so far. It didn't retain that title for long. Not only was this boring, it didn't even feel like a Frost book. The Frost formula is simple: Frost is a slovenly and disorganised but well-intentioned old school copper who gets buried in a heap of cases and whose methods ultimately get him in trouble. There are several crimes in this, but all neatly tie together in a distinctly non Frost way. There's no sense of tension, with too much time spent on almost soap opera scenes of characters and the author's love of showing off his vocabulary slows it down even more. None of the characters are well served, but Mullett comes off by far the worst. He's so out of character it may as well have been somebody else entirely. The whole thing feels like the author took the first draft of a different book and made some small changes (mainly the names.) Finally, it's not funny. Frost books usually manage to find the humour in very dark scenarios, but this goes out of its way to include bizarre scenarios but the humour still falls flat

Disjointed

Not for me, wont get another. Jumps from one scenario to another with no link and I just got lost. Tries to be too clever and ended up losing me. Well read.
