Summary

August, 1983. Denton is preparing for a wedding. DS Waters should be on top of the world with less than a week to go until he marries Kim Myles. But the Sunday before the big day, the body of a young woman is found in the churchyard, and their wedding venue becomes a crime scene.

DS Jack Frost has been homeless for the past three months. He's been staying with DC Sue Clarke but with a baby to take care of and the imminent arrival of her mother, she's given him his marching orders. But as best man to Waters, he's got a responsibility to solve the mystery of the dead girl in the churchyard.

As Good as the Original

I was so pleased to find that there are more Frost books and I enjoyed this book immensely. The plot is good, it is well read and well paced.

Good story delivered well by narrator.Still doesn’t have the humour of R D Wingfield’s originals but nevertheless a good listen

good old Jack.

Having listened to David Jason reading, this was strange but became gripped in the story.

very poor story

It was rubbish, not good enough to give it any stars apart from the reader who is very good

What a revolting man

Although I found the book interesting and well written, good for gardening, driving etc, I found Jack a disgusting character, with few if any redeeming characteristics.
Ok, so it is set in a different era, but not only is he rude and ill mannered he lack s even basic personal hygiene. While I dislike changes made for TV adaptations at least David Jason added some decent character to Frost

Okay but not as good as wingfield who was the originator of the series.

This writer doesn’t have quite the wry humorous touch of the creator of the series.
