DI Jack Frost is called back from his holiday to investigate the death of a child! Jack Forst was supposed to be on holiday, but with one child dead and another reported missing, there was no chance, no matter how much it pained Chief Superintendent Mullett to recall his scruffiest, must irreverent officer to duty. Had the same person taken both boys? Was there any connection with the pervert who silently entered houses at night to stab babies in their cots? Questions, questions and more questions. And so very few answers ! David Jason, who plays D I Jack Frost in the TV adaptation, brings R D Wingfield's characters to vivid life in this compelling audio tape.

From the Publisher:

"Detective Inspector Jack Frost, Denton Division, is not beloved by his superiors. In fact, he's something of a pain in the brass: unkempt and unruly, with a taste for crude humor and a tendency to cut corners. They'd like nothing better than to bounce him from the department. The only problem is, Frost's the one D.I. who, by hook or by crook, always seems to find a way to get the job done. It's a high price to pay for a pak of smokes when Frost interrupts his vacation to filch some of Commander Mullett's cigarettes and finds himself pressed into emergency duty. Denton Division is shorthanded after a car crash involving several tipsy high-ranking cops, and on Guy Fawkes night there's more mischief abroad than just a few children making the rounds begging for pennies and lighting firecrackers. In the next few days, Frost will deal with a parade of miscreants, including a blackmailer, a shifty businessman, a not-so-greiving widow, a sexual pervert or two, a crazed housewife, and a cold-blooded kidnapper. The clock is ticking, and Frost is perilously short of clues...

"What impresses me most is the extraordinarily vivid interplay between the police characters. Frost himself is splendidly drawn." -- The Times, London.
