'Fast-paced and wryly amusing... A delight from start to finish' - Val McDermid Detective Inspector Jack Frost is having a hard time. A young boy is found dead in a rubbish heap, suffocated and with one finger cut off. Another boy is missing. A psychopath is stabbing babies as they lie sleeping in their cots. A fifteen-year-old has been abducted, then found naked by the roadside. Frost is up to his neck in crime. And the problems keep coming. The corpse of a petty criminal is discovered, with the tops of three fingers chopped off. The small children of a carpet fitter are murdered; his wife's body is found on the railway line. A supermarket MD is sent a ransom demand for the missing boy, accompanied by one of the child's fingers... Jack Frost, scruffy and insubordinate, foul-mouthed and fearless, staggers from crisis to crisis. But beneath his bumbling exterior lie extraordinary powers of detection...

Fast paced and wryly amusing, Frost's latest outing is a delight from start to finish, a unique and unlikely blend of humour and tragedy. More please -- Val McDermid * Manchester Evening News * What impresses me most is the extraordinarily vivid interplay between the police characters. Frost himself is splendidly drawn * The Times * Inspector Jack Frost (is) deplorable yet funny, a comic monster on the side of the angels * Guardian * Crime pick of the year. Darker, funnier and more violent than the television adaptation, but just as high quality * Daily Telegraph *
