The Real Frost

This is the real Frost, rude and crude, unlike the sanitised version shown on TV with his contrived 'romantic interludes'. Multi-layered storylines, characters that jump off the page and a satisfactory conclusion. It is really sad to think that this will be the last Frost story because of the recent death of R D Wingfield. Luckily I have all his other stories on tape and will continue to enjoy them for years to come. 'A Killing Frost' is a worthy end to the series.

Excellent story marred by old-fashioned crudity

I was interested to compare the original incarnation of DI Frost with the screen version with David Jason. Not suriprisingly the book has much more complex and multi-stranded story-lines. These are gripping and excellently narrated: tthe characters brought to life by different accents.

The big difference between the two mediums is that the original characterisation of Frost is of a misoginistic, foul-mouthed and dishonest policeman.
