Full Plot

DI Jack Frost investigates the disappearance of Tracy Uphill who vanished when her mother was late arriving at the community centre to collect her. He's also assigned DC Barnard, the Chief Constable's nephew, who receives a frosty reception from his fellow officers. In the course of searching for the girl, they uncover human remains that have been buried for 30 years or more. The remains are those of a bank clerk who had vanished with a large sum of money. When the assistant bank manager is murdered with the same gun used to kill the bank clerk, Frost must determine who else might have been implicated in the robbery. All during this time, Frost has to deal with his dying wife. garykmcd Plot not found

Supt. Mullett: Of course, the irony of it all is that if the girl's mother had been twenty minutes earlier, that body probably would have remained in those woods for another thirty years. Frost: That's the first thing that struck me, sir, is the irony of it all. I remember saying to DC Barnard as they carted Powell and his wife off to the morgue..."How ironic", I said. Frost: [to Barnard] A word of advice, son - well, two words. One, ever tell Mr. Mullet that I'm in the office, and, two, never wear a suit that you wouldn't be happy letting a drunk be sick over. Dr. McKenzie: [Sarcastically examinung the skeletal hand they've found] You called me a little late I'm afraid. An hour earlier I could have saved him. Frost: Hmmm... I know I tried to give him the kiss of life, but he stuck his fingers up my nose. Frost: Well, you can't keep anything hidden, at least not forever.
