From the Publisher:

The sleepy English town of Denton is having more than its share of crime. A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man has unearthed a long-buried skeleton in his yard; add to that a series of burglaries. But Detective Inspector Jack Frost's main concern is for a missing girl. Nine weeks earlier, eight-year-old Vicky Stuart didn't return home from school. She's not been seen since. Another girl from the same school is reported missing. Her body is found...raped and strangled. Frost's prime suspect, strongly protesting his innocence, hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for his suicide. Subsequent evidence points to the man's innocence. The clock is ticking, and D.I. Frost is in serious trouble. R.D. Wingfield's earlier novels are "Frost at Christmas, Night Frost, A Touch of Frost," and "Hard Frost."

From the Back Cover:

'Frost is a splendid creation, a cross between Rumpole and Colombo' Marcel Berlins, The Times

Denton is having more than its fair share of crime. A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man demolishing his garden shed uncovers a long buried skeleton; an armed robbery at a local mini-mart; a ram-raid at a jewellers and a series of burglaries.

But Detective Inspector Jack Frost's main concern is for the safety of a missing schoolgirl. Nine weeks ago, Vicky Stuart, eight years old, didn't return home from school and in spite of exhaustive enquiries and extensive searches, has never been seen since. Another little girl from the same school is reported missing. Her body is found...raped and strangled.

Frost's prime suspect, strongly protesting his innocence, hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for driving him to suicide. Subsequent evidence points to the man's innocence.

Coarse, insubordinate and fearless, DI Jack Frost is in serious trouble.

'If you enjoy crime fiction at all, read this. If you've never read a crime novel in your life, start with this one' Morning Star

'R.D. Wingfield has created possibly the most accurate picture of police work in crime fiction today...Winter Frost is an absolute cracker. Maybe not what you would expect if you have only met Frost on television, but a must for any crime fan worth their salt'Mike Ripley, Sherlock Holmes
