Synopsis Denton is having more than its fair share of crime. A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man demolishing his garden shed uncovers a long buried skeleton; an armed robbery at a local mini-mart; a ram-raid at a jewellers and a series of burglaries.
But Detective Inspector Jack Frost's main concern is for the safety of a missing schoolgirl. Nine weeks ago, Vicky Smart, eight years old, didn't return home from school and in spite of exhaustive enquiries and searches, has never been seen since. Another little girl from the same school is reported missing. Her body is found ... raped and strangled.
Frost's prime suspect, strongly protesting his innocence, hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for driving him to suicide. Subsequent evidence points to the man's innocence.
Coarse, insubordinate and fearless, D.I. Jack Frost is in serious trouble.
