Well the title says it all. It is BRILLIANT. i read/listened to all the books in the jack frost series and my only negative is that there wasn't anymore. I love them. If you have seen the series then you will live the books. Jack is brilliant and I wish more of his co-workers thought the same as if it wasn't for jack then Denton would be full of active criminals and jumped up coppers who know bugger all. I wish I could give them more stars. David Jason is a natural story teller.
Brilliant story narrated by one of the best actors of this age, David Jason, what a Star.
My only criticism is there should be at least a 3 second gap at the end of the story before an American accented voice kicks in and destroys the atmospheric ending by announcing the presentation was by Audible.Com. .
Guys, you are ruining the ending.
