A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

DI Jack Frost is best-known for his small screen portrayal by David Jason. Created by the late R.D. Wingfield, the books he appears in are much more subtle and fascinating than their TV adaptations, developing a gently askew view of small-town Britain. James Henry has taken over the series and has gone back to Frost's earlier years in the 1970s and this 3rd prequel (after First Frost and Fatal Frost) is set straight after his wife's burial when a mysterious human foot is found in a farmer's field and soon after a local businessman is shot and a valuable painting goes missing. Despite his own burdensome woes, Frost has to unthread the criminal spiderweb. Superbly-plotted and humane English detection.

 

Sarah Broadhurst's View :-

 

DI Frost is one of the most beloved detectives to grace our shelves and our screens. The original series was written by R. D. Wingfield who died in 2007, with the last Frost book published in 2008. Rather than merely continue the series, James Henry (the pseudonym for James Gurbutt and Henry Sutton) has written three prequels set in the 70s and 80s which take the series up to where it first started. Brilliantly capturing the era and the character of Frost this is gripping and enjoyable.
