Mystery & Suspense • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Stephen Thorne narrates this prequel to the exploits of Detective Inspector Frost, which takes place in 1982, in Denton, England. Thorne's straightforward delivery style tempers the usual frenetic beginning of a Frost novel. Detective Sergeant Frost's wife has passed away. While the funeral is occurring, young constable Sue Clark is asked to attend to a farmer who has found a human body part in one of his fields. Additionally, a local gangster is shot by a stripper, and a new computer system is baffling Frost. As things pile up, Thorne continues to read with a delightful British accent, carefully differentiating the many characters. As Frost investigates these cases in his characteristic laid-back manner, he stirs up the usual reactions from his colleagues--impatience and annoyance. Thorne adds to the suspense and humor of this well-written police procedural. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2014]
