Frost's efforts to join a gym and date Julie, the fitness instructor, are hampered by two suspicious deaths. The first concerns a man found dead on a waste tip with no identity beyond an empty wallet, seemingly a mugging victim. However his wife comes to report his disappearance and Frost, in following through, is intrigued to learn that her sleep therapist is rather more than just the concerned friend he professes to be. Could these two meek little souls be capable of murder? The other body is that of escort girl Heather, found in a hotel room booked by married businessman Stephen Richman. He denies murder but confesses that he was shocked to realize what she did as she was a student friend of his daughter. Later he is found dead in his car but Frost can see no reason for his suicide and rightly so.

Be Careful! It's My Daughter's BFF
29 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

The show starts out with a bad decision made by a successful businessman. He calls an escort service and who should show up but the best friend of his daughter. They agree to keep things quiet, but she doesn't honor that and extorts him. It turns out that the 12,000 pounds he loans her to go to college is used to do a start up business bringing foreign women into England to work as prostitutes. What happens, however, is that everyone gets in over their heads. The business is run be some pretty bad people. Frost investigates and must deal with the usual duplicity and arrogance of the bad guys. A second case involves an abusive man who is found dead in a pile of crushed glass. His wife reports him missing but some strange clues lead to a more insightful investigation.
