Full Plot

Two young men are tricked by their girlfriends into stripping themselves nude for a midnight swim, during which the girls run off with the boys' clothes, leaving them to streak through Denton. One is arrested but the other, Roman Cassell, gets back to his office where,the next day ,he is found beaten to death. Suspicion falls on Jason Cohu and his father-in-law Joshua Ray, who blame Cassell for the death of Jason's wife and were in the vicinity of the office that night. Joshua admits to the murder but Frost believes he is innocent, misguidedly protecting his son-in-law and CCTV footage proves him right. At the same time Carl Meyer is released from a twenty year prison term. When he was a young boy he was accused of murdering a little girl with whom he used to play and with whose corpse he was found. Her cousin disappeared on the same day and he was also accused of killing her. The girls' family conduct a vendetta against him to which he shows no malice, claiming, as he had done all along, that he is innocent of both deaths. His only ally is the local vicar, whom Frost initially dismisses as a liberal 'do-gooder'. However she successfully convinces Frost that a simple lad like Carl would not be devious enough to maintain the same deception for so long unless he was indeed not guilty. This means that the real murderer is still at large. don@minifie-1 DI Jack Frost has two major cases on his hands. When Carl Meyer is released from prison after serving a 20 year sentence for killing 14 year-old Jane Crewes, he's anything but welcome back in his old neighborhood. The then DS Frost had worked on the case and Meyer was never charged or convicted in a second death, that of Harriet Collingham whose body was never located. Meyer has always maintained his innocence, even after the second girl's remains are found at a construction site. The DI begins to wonder if there's a killer on the loose. Frost is also dealing with the case of an executive who was beaten to death in his company's office. Roman Cassell and his business partner Tom Brody were tricked into going for a midnight swim by two attractive girls but then left to fend for themselves in their birthday suits. While Brody was arrested by the police, Cassell made it back to his office where he found an employee, Jason Cohu, downloading data from the company's computers. Cohu had been working at the firm for only a month and was quite well off so Frost is immediately suspicious. When someone else walks in to the station confessing to murdering Cassell, Frost doubts his story. garykmcd Plot not found

Vicar Lucy Daniels: I've got up the noses of most of my parishioners. I wouldn't lose any sleep if I got up yours, Mr. Frost. Supt Mullett: If you ever forget your mistakes, you're in the wrong job. [first lines] Supt Mullett: Uh, ninety percent of the form consists of questions requiring a simple yes/no answer; uh, a, a tick in the box. I-i-it couldn't be simpler. [audience laughs] Where no answer is possible or the section is irrelevant, you simply jump to the next, um, next, uh, relevant question. Uh, now I know there may appear to be rather a lot of pages... Insp Jack Frost: This doesn't mean that we won't want to question you again, you and Mr Ray. Jason Cohu: All Josh did was keep watch. I didn't want him to be involved. Insp Jack Frost: He got involved the moment you decided to play policeman. Jason Cohu: Well, you know how it is, Inspector. You can never find one when you need one. [last lines] Insp Jack Frost: There was just so much evidence. I should have had doubts. It's my job. Supt Mullett: When I was a constable I was called to a domestic. Husband and wife row. I asked the wife if she wanted to leave, but, uh, they'd made up. He said sorry; she seemed all right. I don't know if I saw fear in her eyes as I left or if I imagined it afterwards. She was dead the next day. Husband set the house on fire. I can still see her face. If you ever forget your mistakes, I think you're in the wrong job. I'll be here if you need a lift.
