Detective Inspector Jack Frost, Denton Division, is not beloved by his superiors. In fact, he'ssomething of a pain in the brass: unkempt and unruly, with a taste for crude humor and a tendency to cutcorners. They'd like nothing better than to bouncehim from the department. The only problem is, Frost's the one D.I. who, by hookor by crook, always seems to find a way to get thejob done. It's a high price to pay for a pak ofsmokes when Frost interrupts his vacation to filchsome of Commander Mullett's cigarettes and findshimself pressed into emergency duty. Denton Divisionis shorthanded after a car crash involving severaltipsy high-ranking cops, and on Guy Fawkes nightthere's more mischief abroad than just a fewchildren making the rounds begging for pennies andlighting firecrackers. In the next few days, Frost willdeal with a parade of miscreants, including ablackmailer, a shifty businessman, a not-so-greivingwidow, a sexual pervert or two, a crazed housewife, and a cold-blooded kidnapper. The clock isticking, and Frost is perilously short of clues...
