Summary

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 reads R. D. Wingfield's A Touch of Frost.

just like watching Frost on TV

Loved this, could just picture David Jason in character.
Only disappointed factor is that this was the abridged version.

Love David Jason narrating but not as good as tv

Loved the narration by David Jason, but really prefer the character on the TV programme to the book the author portrays frost quite sleazy and seedy. Hard to get into especially when you are familiar with the TV character. Can understand why the author didn't approve of the programme as not a real portrayal, but dislike his version of frost.

Great detective story

Great narration from Frost himself, an in depth version of the tv episode. Much enjoyed and will go on to listen to more from the series.

A Touch of Frost

This is a great series of books. I thought the TV series was good but the book gives Jack Frost far more depth.
I find it hard to believe that Audible only have a few to select from and only one unabridged! Come on Audible lets not waste time and money on these abridged versions.
Could the editor please tell me where we can make suggestions for new books, I don't seem to find that anymore.
