Hard Frost Summary


Hard Frost: (DI Jack Frost Book 4) by R. D. Wingfield

`Fast-paced and wryly amusing... A delight from start to finish' - Val McDermid Detective Inspector Jack Frost is having a hard time. A young boy is found dead in a rubbish heap, suffocated and with one finger cut off. Another boy is missing. A psychopath is stabbing babies as they lie sleeping in their cots. A fifteen-year-old has been abducted, then found naked by the roadside. Frost is up to his neck in crime. And the problems keep coming. The corpse of a petty criminal is discovered, with the tops of three fingers chopped off. The small children of a carpet fitter are murdered; his wife's body is found on the railway line. A supermarket MD is sent a ransom demand for the missing boy, accompanied by one of the child's fingers... Jack Frost, scruffy and insubordinate, foul-mouthed and fearless, staggers from crisis to crisis. But beneath his bumbling exterior lie extraordinary powers of detection...

Hard Frost Reviews


"Crime pick of the year. Darker, funnier and more violent than the television adaptation, but just as high quality" * Daily Telegraph *
"Inspector Jack Frost (is) deplorable yet funny, a comic monster on the side of the angels" * Guardian *
"What impresses me most is the extraordinarily vivid interplay between the police characters. Frost himself is splendidly drawn" * The Times *
"Fast paced and wryly amusing, Frost's latest outing is a delight from start to finish, a unique and unlikely blend of humour and tragedy. More please" -- Val McDermid * Manchester Evening News *
