'A funny, frantic, utterly refreshing brew' Sunday Telegraph
Detective Inspector Jack Frost, officially on duty, is nevertheless determined to sneak off to a colleague's leaving party.But first the corpse of a well-known local junkie is found blocking the drain of a Denton public lavatory - and then, when Frost attempts to join the revels later on, the nubile daughter of a wealthy businessman is reported missing.
Sleepy Denton has never known anything like the crime wave which now threatens to submerge it.A robbery occurs at the town's notorious strip joint, the Coconut Grove, the pampered son of a local MP is suspected of a hit-and-run offence and, to top it all, a multiple racist is on the loose.Frost is reeling under the strain, his paperwork is still in arrears and now, more than ever, his self-righteous colleagues would love to see him sacked.But the manic Frost manages to assure his superior that all is under control.Now he has only to convince himself...
