First Frost

by James Henry

Part of the DI Jack Frost Prequel Series

First Frost Synopsis

'Frost is back - this is a brilliant read, I can't recommend it highly enough' Martina Cole Denton, 1981. Britain is in recession, the IRA is becoming increasingly active and the country's on alert for an outbreak of rabies. Detective Sergeant Jack Frost is working under his mentor and inspiration DI Bert Williams, and coping badly with his increasingly strained marriage. But DI Williams is nowhere to be seen. So when a 12-year-old girl goes missing from a department store changing room, DS Frost is put in charge of the investigation... 'One of the most successful ventriloquial acts in crime writing.' Financial Times
