Another winner in the series about the scruffy, scandalous yet extremely smart D.I. Frost. As usual, the police are overworked and understaffed as they deal with some extreme cases. A psychopath is breaking into houses and stabbing young children, a teenage girl was abducted and found naked wandering the streets, a corpse with missing fingers has turned up, three children in one family have been murdered and another young boy is missing. These are serious crimes and yet this book still manages to be hilarious as we follow along in the wake of an apparent bumbling, foul-mouthed Frost who manages to upset his superiors every step of the way with his rule bending, yet successful methods.A great series of books that always manage to make me laugh but I would caution against reading these books too closely together as they are quite similar in their plots. I find one a year is just about right.

Jack Frost, Detective Inspector in the town of Denton, as usual breaks all the rules of police procedure while solving the difficult cases and seeing justice done. As usual, several things are going on at once, from multiple crimes to petty maneuvering in the police station for everything from better shifts to promotion. Frost is enjoyably irreverant and not a little vulgar, but strives to do right.

Detective Inspector Frost."It's a high price to pay for a pack of smokes when Frost interrupts his vacation to filch some of Commander Mullett's cigarettes and finds himself pressed into emergency duty. Denton Division is shorthanded after a car crash involving several tipsy high-ranking cops, and on Guy Fawkes night there's more mischief abroad than just a few children making the rounds. Frost must deal with a blackmailer, a shifty businessman, a not-so-grieving widow, a sexual pervert or two, a crazed housewife, and a cold-blooded kidnapper." - Bantam jacket notes.A good police procedural, likeable detective - a good series.
