LoveReading View on A Killing Frost

Despite being frequently on and off the television, we haven’t actually had a new book about DI Jack Frost for a surprising eight years. The books are darker than the TV series and more violent, probably some of the best in crime fiction.


Comparison: Peter Robinson, Peter James, John Mortimer.

A Killing Frost Synopsis

A human foot has been discovered in Denton woods, a multiple rapist is on the loose, and the local supermarket has reported poisoned stock. Then two young girls are reported missing, and the Denton crime wave reaches terrifying heights.

As DI Jack Frost staggers exhausted from case to case, something nasty arrives at the station in the form of DCI Skinner. The scheming, slippery Skinner’s first job is to manipulate the transfer of the unorthodox Frost to another division.

Will Frost find the missing girls before his new nemesis forces him away from Denton once and for all?

A Killing Frost Press Reviews

Another jam-packed, thrilling outing for Wingfield’s DI Jack Frost. With more twists than a bucket of eels, this is a fitting climax to an incredible series. I can’t believe there won’t be any more.
Stuart MacBride

‘Frost remains by far the most unattractive cop in mainstream crime fiction . . . this is a fitting memorial to a clever writer with an appealing line in cheekiness’ Mark Lawson, Guardian

‘Indecently exciting. The pace is relentless . . . and Frost himself is, as he might himself say, a flaming delight. We shall miss him’ Daily Telegraph
