Publisher's Summary

November 5th, 1982. It's been one of the worst days of Detective Sergeant Jack Frost's life. He has buried his wife Mary, and must now endure the wake, attended by all of Denton's finest. All, that is, apart from DC Sue Clark, who spends the night chasing a bogus tip-off, before being summoned to the discovery of a human foot. And the night gets worse.
Local entrepreneur Harry Baskin is shot inside his club, an off-licence is set on fire and a famous painting goes missing. And Superintendant Mullett's attempts to join the Freemasons are being rudely thwarted.
As the week goes on, a cyclist is found dead in suspicious circumstances, and the arsonist strikes again. Frost is on the case.

Not as good as the original

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator was very good, it was the story that lacked. If the author(s) had not changed facts from Frost's life as described in the original R.D. Wingfield Frost books, it would have been much better.

Would you ever listen to anything by James Henry again?

Yes. I would probably still buy their work. The story was okay for detective fiction, it just wasn't really a Frost book.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Thorne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first one I've listened to.

What character would you cut from Morning Frost?

None. They all served a purpose.

Ignore other reviewer giving low score...

Any additional comments?

The other reviewer who rated this low due to it not matching the continuity of the television version is missing the point; these books are prequels to R.D Wingfield's novels, which not only differ in plot from the later David Jason series but paint a vastly different picture of the lead character. For what it's worth, Frost's wife has already been dead for some years in the first of the original novels (Frost at Christmas).

the best early Frost

Really enjoyed this audiobook, with a great story and excellently narrated.
These are definitely getting better and look forward to the next one.
