A Touch of Frost (1987) is a crime novel by, R.D. Wingfield. The series inspired a popular television series of the same name, starring David Jason as the titular character, Detective Inspector Jack Frost; a disheveled, unorthodox and caustic police officer.

Plot summary

The murder of a local drug addict, the hunt for a serial rapist, a hit-and-run involving the spoiled son of an MP, and a robbery at a strip joint all have something in common. Detective Inspector Jack Frost has been assigned with the thankless task of investigating them. Fighting the stress and ignoring his mounting pile of paperwork, Frost soon finds himself up against the various manifestations of criminality...
