Somebody has located the Thompsons and, in Frost's book, this can only mean that there is a traitor within the police ranks.

Action for the sake of action only at the end of this Frost. Very disappointing. And all contrived in a very silly way. George recalls that the boy had some model airplanes in his room. Hey! Obviously the boy's mother, in order to entice the boy to run away from some very bad baddies, told the boy she would take him to an airplane museum about a 100 miles away. Any copper would be able to figure that one out, eh. So half the Thames Valley police force screams down to the airplane museum, after hours, and lo and behold, they ARE there. And the baddie, too. All too unbelievable for what is usually a very well done English DCI drama.
