Just finished reading ...

... A Killing Frost, R.D. Wingfield's sixth and final (published posthumously) Inspector Frost book. I feel like my brain just staggered off a rollercoaster ... the previous five volumes have all been complex, grim, gritty, and gripping¹, but this one outdoes them all. A masterful final exit both for the character and the writer.

Wingfield's books aren't the easiest things in the world to find (surprising, since the tv series based on them, A Touch of Frost, is popular enough to have lasted 14 seasons ... and it's well worth watching, too). But, if you want to try to seek 'em out, the novels are, in chronological/reading order:

"Frost at Christmas" (1984)
"A Touch of Frost" (1987)
"Night Frost" (1992)
"Hard Frost" (1995)
"Winter Frost" (1999)
"A Killing Frost" (2008)

Read them if you find them ... you won't be disappointed.

¹ My alliteration failed me ... couldn't think of a g-word meaning complex ;p
