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.
After a successful career writing for radio, R.D. WINGFIELD turned his attention to fiction and created the character of D.I.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from British Mystery Delight... Yet another good old-fashioned British mystery from the pen of Wingfield. It is too bad that he died in 2007. However, as with Christie, this is a classic - I keep re-reading this title. It will definitely appear on my upcoming Xmas Mystery top 10 list. If you liked the PBS series Frost, you will love reading all of the Frost books by Wingfield.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful read I only recently became aware of this writer as he has a new book out (posthumously) called A Killing Frost which looked interesting. I then discovered that this is the last in a series which starts with Frost at Christmas; so I decided to start there. It is a great read with wonderful characters, lots of humour and a very good mystery as well.
