7 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A Regional Crime Squad detective is found murdered on Jack's patch. Could his death have something to do with an undercover car theft ring? When Frost takes the lead in the subsequent investigation, he soon comes head-to-head with the dead policeman's boss, as well as suffering severe hostility from the victim's colleagues....

A welcome performance from Nicky Henson as D.S. Larry Finlay, a hard-hitting but sometimes naive officer who understandably takes offence to Jack's techniques to catch the killer. But is Jack pushing his luck too far or is he on the right track?

Line of Fire was the first of three two part specials of A Touch of Frost, which also welcomed the return of a character whom viewers hadn't seen for five years! A great cliffhanger awaits the end of part one and is not to be missed!
