Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast drama starring Derek Martin, the precursor to the popular TV series and novels.
Jack Frost is disheveled, disorganised and disrespectful. His superiors don't like him. He has a habit of doing things his way - and getting results. But when Denton CID is faced with a spate of major crimes, Frost finds himself under pressure.
A young woman becomes the sixth victim of a multiple rapist, a teenage girl goes missing, there's a robbery at the Purple Parrot nightclub, and an old man is injured in a hit-and-run. With all this on his plate, Frost has little time and less patience for paperwork - but if he doesn't submit the overtime reports, there will be hell to pay. Has Frost bitten off more than he can chew?
A Touch of Frost gave rise to a hugely successful TV series that ran between 1992 and 2010. This gritty drama, first broadcast on Radio 4 in 1982, features Derek Martin as Jack Frost, with a supporting cast including Haydn Wood, Stephen Thorne and Alan Dudley.

Humph!!!

Not a whole story merely an installment from a radio series. Beginning but no 'end'. Don't waste your money!

Poor value for money

Far too short. Story ended abruptly - seemed not to be the end. Very disappointing. Would definately NOT recommend this story.

Not the full story

Performances and story are fine but file is incomplete. Original broadcast ran to an hour and a half (as stated in the publishers summary above). CD version is 2 discs, Audible's version is obviously only disc 1. Reported this to customer support on release but seems that the problem has still not been resolved. Audible has fallen down badly here.
