Scott Frost is a screenwriter whose credits include Twin Peaks and The X-Files.
This is real cat and mouse stuff as a killer taunts Lieutenant Delillo in a race against time. The action is fast and furious as the tension builds and the psychological games being played out keep you mesmerised and intrigued right to the end. Scott Frost proves he is a thriller writer worthy of comparison with the likes of Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben.
A serial killer tale refreshingly without all the blood and gore which frequently dominates this area. This is both special and different; a gripping tale of the disintegration of a mind, the revelations of a murder and the clever prevention of more killings by a sexually perverted being. A complicated and compelling book of conspiracies, psychological puzzles and buried memories. Excellent stuff. Similar this month: Stuart MacBride. Comparison: Michael Connelly, Tami Hoag, Tess Gerritsen.

Scott Frost is back with another explosive crime novel featuring Alex Delillo. As the heat rises, LA begins to experience a series of power blackouts. As the situation worsens, LAPD is put on tactical alert in preparation for nightfall. With every available cop on the streets, Lt. Alex Delillo and her partner, Harrison, are holding the fort at headquarters, waiting for the first homicide call. But when that call comes in, the voice on the other end isn't a victim pleading for help. It's a voice talking in riddles, pointing to a murder that is about to be committed once night falls. Delillo and Harrison pinpoint the call to an office in a brokerage firm in the building across the street. But as they arrive, only a ringing phone awaits them. It's the caller again, warning them that it's almost dark, and they don't have much time to stop what is about to happen to the office's occupant. Now the killer has Delillo's attention and his plan is in motion. Dark is coming and it doesn't wait for anyone. Can Delillo find the killer before it's too late?
Lieutenant Alex Delillo must face a dangerous serial killer in Scott Frost's fourth book for Headline. It starts with a body found lying in the centre of the Rose Bowl's dark field, surrounded by thousands of empty seats. For Lieutenant Alex Delillo, it's the beginning of a nightmare. The sixteen-year-old girl is found wrapped in a sleeping bag and as Delillo opens it she discovers that the body is frozen solid. The mystery deepens further when her partner, Harrison, recognises her as the daughter of a prominent lawyer who disappeared three years before. A search of the stadium reveals the only other clue - a copy of an etching by the nineteenth century artist Francisco Goya. It's a picture of a dead woman in the exact same pose as the frozen young girl. The girl's death is swiftly followed by others. All of the victims are prominent in the community and each body is posed as a copy of a Goya painting. For Delillo and Harrison, one thing is clear - their killer is treading in the footsteps of a great artist who despised the Establishment and now it seems no-one in power is safe. Not even their boss, Chief Chavez...
In Scott Frost's outstanding third novel for Headline, Lieutenant Alex Delillo is embroiled in the sinister disappearance of an ex-LAPD officer last seen in war-ravaged Iraq. Cathy Salem is desperate for Lieutenant Alex Delillo's help. Her husband, Jack, an ex-LAPD officer now working for a private security firm, has officially been listed as missing after he failed to return home from an eleven-month placement in Iraq. Cathy knows that he is in hiding in the States but it is all too apparent that he is too scared to come home. Her only clue to his whereabouts is a package sent by him to her, posted in Trona in Death Valley, with a letter inside it addressed to Alex. Alex barely remembers Jack Salem. They met once years ago and have never spoken since. Aware of Cathy's distress but unable to see how she can help, Alex nevertheless agrees to look into Jack's disappearance. It is only when Cathy herself vanishes and Alex is nearly run off the road whilst following a lead as to Jack's whereabouts, that she realises that this goes far beyond a simple missing persons case...
