Frost finds himself investigating the murder of Damien Law who was killed in his flat. Law was essentially a gigolo and a paid male escort who spent a great deal of time with a great many women. At least one client became obsessed with him and he also may have set himself up in competition with the long-time owner of an escort agency. Frost also determines that the case may be related to a recent suicide. Frost is also investigating a theft at the local cricket club. This time around, he is assisted by DS Prentice, a somewhat dour Scot. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


D.I. Frost: [Speaking about a dead gigolo] What I can't understand, though, is what did he get out of it? Apart from her pickin' up the bills, I mean. I mean, you know, young good-lookin' fella like that with a good body like that would want younger flesh, wouldn't he? What would he find in a middle-aged woman?
D.S. Prentice: If I knew the answer to that, sir, I'd still be married.

Ah, Look at All the Lonely People
16 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A male escort is brutally murdered. He apparently was incredibly popular with his clients. Some of them actually saw him as a potential partner. A suicide takes place at the beginning, making this anything but victimless. Frost finds himself in the middle of a social setting which he can't quite fathom. To make matters worse, since the young man was free lancing, instead of paying off some criminals who had many young men and women in their stable, it put him in grave danger. This may well be the reason he has died. We are also introduced to women whose lives are miserable because their husbands have lost any of their romance in the relationship. It is a highly interesting episode. It also treats the idea that as people age, their needs continue, even if it is laughable to the younger folk.
