Winter in Denton is cold, bleak, and a busy time for Detective Inspector Jack Frost, whose unsolved crime figures are mounting as he struggles to bring them down in the face of manpower shortages and budget cuts. Denton is having more than its fair share of crime. A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man demolishing his garden shed uncovers a long buried skeleton; an armed robbery at a local mini-mart; a ramraid at a jewellers, and a series of burglaries. But Frost´s main concern is for the safety of a missing schoolgirl. Nine weeks ago Vicky Stuart, eight years old, didn´t return home from school and in spite of exhaustive enquiries and extensive searches, has never been seen since. Another little girl from the same school is reported missing. Her body is found, raped and strangled. Frost´s prime suspect, strongly protesting his innocence, hangs himself in his cell, leaving a note blaming Frost for driving him to suicide. Subsequent evidence points to the man´s innocence. Coarse, insubordinate, and fearless, DI Jack Frost is in serious trouble. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Jason.

Sura is sixteen years old when she meets Mr. Frost. He´s very short and very fat and he likes his room very, very cold. Some might say inhumanly cold. His first name isn´t Jack, she´s told. And that´s all she needed to know. Mr. Frost´s love for Christmas is over-the-top and slightly psychotic. And why not? He´s made billions of dollars off the holiday he invented. Or so he claims. Rumor is he´s an elven, but that´s silly. Elven aren´t real. And if they were, they wouldn´t live in South Carolina. They wouldn´t hide in a tower and go to the basement to make…things. Nonetheless, Sura will work for this odd little recluse. Frost Plantation is where she´ll meet the love of her life. It´s where she´ll finally feel like she belongs somewhere. And it´s where she´ll meet someone fatter, balder, and stranger than Mr. Frost. It´s where she´ll meet Jack. Jack hates Christmas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Robert Killavey.
