Sleepy Denton is sleepy no more; a dead junky, a missing girl, a robbery at the strip joint, an MP accused of a hit and run offence and a multiple rapist at large are all sent to try David Jason’s already overworked DI Jack Frost.
A rapist on the loose, a young girl missing, a robbery at a leisure complex run by a low life, and an old man knocked down by a driver who wouldn’t stop … Detective Inspector Jack Frost knew that there would be lots more to come …
The crime novel at its compelling best, as David Jason read R D Wingrield’s A Touch of Frost.

"A funny, frantic, utterly refreshing brew" ( Sunday Telegraph)
"What impresses most is the extraordinarily vivid interplay between the police characters. Frost himself is spendidly drawn" ( The Times)
Another fabulous crime novel from the creator of A Touch of Frost

Book Description Constable, London, 1990. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Jacket illustration by Terry Pastor (illustrator). 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. "First published in Great Britain 1990." This is the actual 8vo Constable first hardcover printing, not some 12mo "BCA" reprint. It is, however, ex-public library, with glued-in attachments and "DISCARD" stamp to FFE, and top edges stamped "H.C.L." for Huron County Library. Spine rolled about 1/4-inch, but book is tight and would grade "very good" save for the library trappings.
