A serial killer is terrorizing the senior citizens of Denton, and the local police are succumbing to a flu epidemic. In uncertain charge of the investigations is Detective Inspector Jack Frost, crumpled, slapdash, and foul-mouthed as ever. Trying to cope despite inadequate backup, but there is never enough time; the unsolved crimes pile up and the vicious killings go on.

I love history, crime and thrillers, biographies and almost anything by the BBC.
An ambitious young detective inspector finds himself assigned to work with Frost when he is posted to Denton. He is not best pleased to be working with the scruffy, slapdash and disorganised older man with his dubious remarks and rather crude humour. Gilmore would like to find favour with the pompous and oily Head Mullet who is more concerned with being a sycophant to his superiors and having paperwork done on time rather than supporting his troops and caring for their welfare.
Frost and Mullet are diametrically opposed and this creates delicious scenes of hilarity as they clash at every meeting. On a more serious note the Frost series does give an insight into how hard police work actually is. Frost always has several cases on the go at the same time and his days are extremely long.
Over worked , under pressure from "Horned rimmed Harry" the lovable rogue goes about in his usual style clearing up the crimes Denton throws up in the middle of a flu epidemic he doe this wwith humour and wit upsetting all around him ! Like I said Classic Frost !
He performs them all brilliantly and is a really talented narrator
Another entertaining and amusing read from a superb author. I have listened to nearly all the Inspector Frost books (some more than once) and can't fault any of them. They are well worth the money.
Yes very good and enjoyable. But the accent of the reader was very false which spoilt it. It would have been better just to read it as the storyline paints the picture .
Just starting the next book
"really poor production"
hardly serious. with silly superiors. lots of crime, graveyard shifts in graveyards. granny slasher, greasy midnight meals and new partners.
Just for fun, a low 3 star foggy frosty tale.
