A Touch of Frost

Posted by Cary H.

Another must-see for all you British Mystery Fans!  I continue to explore our viewing and reading options, and have come across yet another great mystery series that has been around for years, but not that familiar to American audiences.  Running from 1992 to 2010 (one of the longest running series in Britain), this police procedural has a great cast of characters and an identifiable, and yes, lovable, Detective Inspector in Jack Frost.

For those of you who have enjoyed the Inspector Lewis and Midsomer Murders series, A Touch of Frost is slightly more down to earth than Lewis's Oxford, and more realistic than quirky Midsomer County.  At first I wasn't sure what to think.  Jack is no handsome leading man, but his feisty, impatient nature, and unorganized, bedraggled personal life draws you in.  Before long you're craving his white bread, bacon & ketchup sandwiches, hoping he finds time for a good night's sleep, and wishing you could buy him a new coat!

I think you'll get hooked as I have.  Luckily, there are 15 sets to enjoy, and all available in our regional library system.  Request them by clicking here.
