    Review from Badelynge.The late R.D Wingfield s famous scruffy detective lives on again in this the second book featuring the early investigations by Frost It s 1982 and Frost is currently a Detective Sergeant though due to the absence of most of the higher ranks at Eagle Lane he s doing the job he d eventually rise to in Wingfield s books James Henry is the working name of a duo of writers attempting to capture the beloved character It always seems to me that the character has had as many negative habits pinned to him as possible but with the mission of making the detective still likeable He smokes so heavily even the smokers feel ill, he hardly changes his clothes even in a heatwave, rarely goes home, drinks on the job, though to be fair so does the rest of the squad room and he s cheating on his wife Really he s the only fully formed character in the book along with the heavily caricatured Mullett They re polar opposites, equally disdainful of each other but the two of them are stuck together It s a situation that sort of underpins the whole series and generates most of the amusement The other characters don t really have a lot to them, which sadly includes the new guy, DS Waters, Denton s first black policeman It s a strand that had potential but it never really goes anywhere and pulls its punches when touching on racism within the force during the 80s.Fatal Frost is a very readable and entertaining police procedural, with several cases ongoing which sort of overlap in places Looking in on a younger Frost is a great idea The little touches of period detail tend to pop out of the narrative unexpectedly It s a bit like driving over unseen speed bumps They jolt you out of the story because they don t quite blend into the contemporary perspective Two quid would have been two quid, and bins would have been bins, with no mention of what material they were both made out of As someone who was thirteen at the time I can appreciate the nostalgia evoked but it does seem to have a slight retrospective feel to it that probably doesn t compare to books actually written in the 80s It s not a big problem though I d certainly read any books in the series So crack open a can of Harp lager, reach for a pack of Rothmans maybe not , stick Alison Moyet on the record player and dive into the 80s with that scruffy bloke with a dead cat in his car This review is from an advance reading copy.

    I was a huge fan of Wingfield s Frost series They had mystery and humor and excellent writing, so it was with great trepidation that I tried James Henry s re creation of Frost I was happy to see he has succeeded It must be a very difficult thing to do and is not often well accomplished Robert Goldsborough occasionally succeeds in recreating Archie and Nero, but no one has managed to authentically reproduce Fleming or Ludlum, and they weren t that good in the first place Henry s Frost has just the right combination of humor and mystery It s 1982, Frost is a DS, and Denton is getting its first black policeman Mullet happens to be on the golf course a source of both embarrassment and amusement to the regulars when the eviscerated body of a young boy is found Overworked with a spate of local burglaries, Frost finds to the murder a welcome distraction and then the boy s sister disappears Soon he begins to wonder if this isn t a reprise of a school girls wiccan adventure from years previous Listened to as an audiobook Delightfully read by Stephen Thorne Another one of those books that encourages mowing the lawn twice.

    The authors have tried to get the authentic Frost tone but I don t think it rings true all the time Liked the interweaving strands of the story Get distracted by 1982 references e.g Did people say diversity and closure, when did teenage girls have Walkmans Probably all correct, but took me out of the story

    Another jolly good novel, featuring scruffy, unorganized but lovable Jack Frost.

    I was surprised to read that R.D Wingfield s son review of James Henry s Fatal Frost captured his father s style superbly and that fans would not be disappointed I am I have the entire six book series of the original creator of Jack Frost, Detective, and have read them at least three times over the years Fatal Frost was written after R.D.Wingfield s death in 07 I believe that s the year and with an open mind and hopeful heart delved into it not having enough of Wingfield s most memorable character,Frost The book lacked the slipping, sliding almost manic drive of Frost to capture the criminals The long hours, the dark nights, the luke warm tea, the going in circles search for the murder all of it that made up Frost Even Mullet, the most annoying pompous Chief Constable is not painted in the same image I read a review that says the humor is the same only I didn t find the real humor sometimes quite sick as in the original series This book seemed to follow of the television character, which not only didn t I feel captured the books Frost but neither did Wingfield For me, none of the usual characters, or suspect, had that special thing to capture the laughs, or gnashing of teeth or anything of true interest in Fatal Frost All in all I say if you love Frost stories, please don t do as I did and buy this book Doing so has made me feel like I m actually grieving the death of Mr Wingfield and Jack Frost Sorry R.D I wish I could say differently.

    The first Frost book I have read by either the original or the new author and I have to say that I really enjoyed it There is a lot crammed into the book a gang of BMX riding muggers, an estate agent come burglar, a possible suicide, a disembowelled boy, a missing girl and a dead cat On top of that, the first black officer arrives at Denton, Frost is juggling a mistress and a sick wife, and all Mullet is interested in is the new golf club.I loved the characters they are all well written and coms across as being very individual and realistic, some likable, some not The twisted, interlinked storylines really give the reader the idea of the stress and urgency that the understaffed department come under as they battle to work out the culprits in each one And the fact that they are interlinked, but not jammed uncomfortably together, is an excellent bit of writing.I really enjoyed the few days spent in company with this book and I would definitely pick up other books in the series if they came my way.

    I ve never watched any of the Frost TV series and have never read any of RD Wingfield s novels In addition, this is the second in the series of prequel Frost novels, so it probably wasn t an ideal place to start.I can t say I was bowled over by Fatal Frost none of the characters jumped off the page so I wasn t particularly fussed about them Some of the plot was similar to something in a Ruth Rendell novel I read many years ago which gave me the feeling I d read Fatal Frost before I found it average and can t really say any than that, other than I don t feel the need to read any Frost books.
