Language!

Inspector Frost at his best, rebellious, sensitive at times and, of course, very clever! The story is fast moving with some spinechilling events taking place. The characters are well drawn and, since we all know him from the glorious TV Series starring David Jason, Inspector Frost and others are already familiar to us and it is inevitable that we put faces to the characters as the story proceeds. However, it appears that Frost, as we know him, is a much sanitized personality. In reality he is quite a rough diamond and, tut, tut, he really should eat 'Lifebouy' sandwiches to clean up his mouth. I thought I was very tolerant but it became quite irritating that the text throughout was peppered with continual bad language. I forgave all for the sake of the yarn which I really had to keep listening to to hear the eventual outcome. However, perhaps more sensitive listeners should be warned that the bad language is very strong throughout. That aside, an excellent listen.

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.
