Publisher's Summary

With a healthy disregard for rules, he attracts trouble like a magnet. He has a newly assigned apprentice - the unfortunate Detective Constable Barnard - the Chief Constable's nephew. Fresh to the provinces, just up from London in an embarrassingly flash suit, he's ripe for Frost's satire.

Gritty introduction to Frost

What made the experience of listening to Frost at Christmas the most enjoyable?

All the things which made the television series such a success - Inspector Frost, apparently a bumbling detective with, on the face of it, hardly a clue what is going on juggling several serious cases at once and coming up with most of the answers - to the exasperation of Station Commander Mullet.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Frost at Christmas?

The solving of the "Bank Job".


Have you listened to any of Stephen Thorne’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, he recorded one of the Poldark books.
Totally different subject matter but equally convincing.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Detection in the raw


Any additional comments?

This is the first of a series of books featuring Inspector Jack Frost which were used as the basis for the television series. David Jason's portrayal of the main character was masterly - a brilliant detective who gets things done despite being completely disorganised with regard to procedures, especially those involving paperwork, who cares far more about getting the job done properly than giving the "right" impression.
Compulsive, can't wait to listen to the next one.
