About this Item

True Constable first of the third Jack Frost novel, NOT one of those BCA reprints with the picture of actor David Jason to DJ front panel that most of the bulk sellers in the British Isles will send you after advertising a "1992 Constable first," which this copy actually is. Book is ex-library; no way to tell how badly the preliminary pages were festooned with charming accoutrements because all three have been ripped out and thrown away. FFE gone; "teaser" synopsis page gone, title page gone. Entirety of text remains, but book now begins on page numbered 5: "Sunday / The old lady's name was Mrs Haynes . . ." Top page edges bear a faint red stamping "London Borough Library Services." Spine slants 1/8th inch. Something has been removed from both pastedowns, probably an earlier, glued-down dust jacket protector backed with brown paper. If so, however, it did its job, because jacket (now in a new Brodart mylar protector) is fine and pristine, has never been directly glued down, not price clipped; original L13.99 net price showing. The book is holding together well and is easily read, but the primary value here presumably lies in the lovely first-printing "flaming tombstone" dust jacket. (PLEASE NOTE: Although we find it exasperating to repeat ourselves, we are now encountering would-be customers who don't seem able to comprehend this standard formulation. So: By stating "Most of the value here lies in the dust jacket," we mean this jacket might considerably enhance the value of a better-condition, jacketless copy, but that -- absent the jacket -- this ex-library book itself is not worth much. So please don't order this ex-library book and then -- ignoring the value of the jacket -- complain "The book isn't worth much because it's ex-library." Isn't that what we just said? If necessary, please have an adult native English speaker read this description and explain it to you, employing whatever hand gestures and grunting noises may seem appropriate.) 312 pp., easily read and only moderately age-toned. Reduced from $200. Bookseller Inventory # 003288

About this title

Synopsis:

Another set of unsolved crimes for television's DI Jack Frost (A Touch of Frost) to stumble through. Read by David Jason, the star of the television series.

From the Back Cover:

'Multiple cases, multiple bodies and lashings of police in-fighting.Fast, furious and funny' Daily Telegraph

A serial killer is terrorizing the senior citizens of Denton, and the local police are succumbing to a flu epidemic. Tired and demoralized, the force has to contend with a seemingly perfect young couple suffering arson attacks and death threats, a suspicious suicide, burglaries, pornographic videos, poison-pen letters...

In uncertain charge of the investigations is Detective Inspector Jack Frost, crumpled, slapdash and foul-mouthed as ever.He tries to cope despite inadequate back-up, but there is never enough time; the unsolved crimes pile up and the vicious killings go on.So Frost has to cut corners and take risks, knowing that his Divisional Commander will throw him to the wolves if anything goes wrong.And for Frost, things always go wrong...

'Meaty police procedural; bawdy, funny...enough material here for cult hero status'Literary Review
