Synopsis : Ten days to Christmas and Tracey Uphill, aged eight, hasn't come home from Sunday school. Her mother, a pretty young prostitute, is desperate. Enter Detective Inspector Jack Frost, sloppy, scruffy and insubordinate. To help him investigate the case of the missing child, Frost has been assigned a new sidekick, the Chief Constable's nephew. Fresh to provincial Denton in an oversmart suit, Detective Constable Clive Barnard is an easy target for Frost's withering satire. Assisted and annoyed by Barnard, Frost, complete with a store of tasteless anecdotes to fit every occasion, proceeds with the investigation in typically unorthodox style. After he's consulted a local witch, Dead Man's Hollow yields up a skeleton. Frost finds himself drawn into an unsolved crime from the past and risks not only his career, but also his life...
?Tis the season of good cheer throughout the world, but with only ten days to Christmas, on a bitter December afternoon eight-year-old, Tracy Uphill goes missing. Read by David Jason.
Detective Inspector Jack Frost, Denton Police Force?s scruffiest officer, knows they only have a limited time to find her ? and he?s also got to nursemaid Detective Constable Cliver Barnard, whose uncle just happens to be the Chief Constable.
Then the bodies start to pile up and a crime committed many years before leads a murderer to kill again.
R.D. Wingfield is in pulse-racing form as his always irreverent, always likeable hero with the common touch discovers whodunnit and why.
Read by David Jason, star of the major TV series A Touch of Frost.
