Publisher's Summary

August, 1983. Denton is preparing for a wedding. DS Waters should be on top of the world with less than a week to go until he marries Kim Myles. But the Sunday before the big day, the body of a young woman is found in the churchyard, and their wedding venue becomes a crime scene.

DS Jack Frost has been homeless for the past three months. He's been staying with DC Sue Clarke but with a baby to take care of and the imminent arrival of her mother, she's given him his marching orders. But as best man to Waters, he's got a responsibility to solve the mystery of the dead girl in the churchyard.

Okay but not as good as wingfield who was the originator of the series.

This writer doesn’t have quite the wry humorous touch of the creator of the series.

As Good as the Original

I was so pleased to find that there are more Frost books and I enjoyed this book immensely. The plot is good, it is well read and well paced.

Worst of the Frost books

I feel bad making this my first review of the Frost prequel audio books, having listened to the first three, but I simply had to comment on this one. Stephen Thorne is an excellent narrator at times, but he really dropped the ball on this one. The character of John Waters has previously had a slightly deep voice that worked well enough to differentiate him, but this time it was different. Whoever thought the new voice was a good idea should be ashamed. It's now become a clichéd and stereotypical impersonation of a black man's voice that sometimes veers into an odd Welsh accent. It sounds dreadful. Even if you don't think it sounds racist (some may) it is very hard to take seriously. It's turned what is (and was performed) as an educated and confident character and made him sound ridiculous (pronouncing words like 'this' and 'that' as 'dis' and 'dat.') It made me roll my eyes whenever I knew the character was going to be featured. It doesn't help that it's a rather meandering book that feels more like a series of random events more than a compelling narrative. I know that the Frost books always feature multiple cases, but they've always felt like a way to build the tension to a satisfying conclusion. Too much focus here was too much on the wedding of John and Kim (the latter a character that was never well served and who barely features in this book.) This is the only Frost book I've struggled to get through. The poor character voices, frequent sounds of the narrator swallowing/smacking his lips/etc. and other mistakes (a character is described as whispering into another character's car, rather than their ear) make the whole thing feel a bit slapdash.

good old Jack.

Having listened to David Jason reading, this was strange but became gripped in the story.

very poor story

It was rubbish, not good enough to give it any stars apart from the reader who is very good

What a revolting man

Although I found the book interesting and well written, good for gardening, driving etc, I found Jack a disgusting character, with few if any redeeming characteristics.
Ok, so it is set in a different era, but not only is he rude and ill mannered he lack s even basic personal hygiene. While I dislike changes made for TV adaptations at least David Jason added some decent character to Frost
