All families have secrets, but perhaps none so shocking as that which Frost unearths when he investigates the brutal murder of Peter Lawson.

Peter Lawson is a pawnbroker with a difficult family life. His father, retired after a long career in the army, is a demanding patriarch and his oldest children hate him. An armed robbery at his shop brings DI Jack Frost, now reunited with DS Clive Barnard, onto the case but all does sit well with the police. When Lawson is murdered a few days later, Frost and Barnard uncover a case of child abuse that has gone on for years. The ensuing investigation leads to a tragedy that will long affect the police and Jack in particular. At the Station, Supt. Mullett is being forced to cut his budget and has his eyes squarely set on making Jack redundant. Written by garykmcd

Another fine edition in the Frost franchise with a very sad ending....
2 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

D.I. Jack Frost has three cases to solve: two murders, and the disappearance of a young girl.

Jack is re-united with old sidekick D.S. Clive Barnard to try and solve these mysteries, and viewers can see the on-screen chemistry between David Jason and Matt Bardock as Barnard is simply terrific.

The young girl is the victim of something sinister.... This makes Love Me Tender (aka No Other Love) especially compelling viewing, and leads Jack and Clive on a roller-coaster ride in their attempt to catch a suspect.

An immensely tragic conclusion awaits the final confrontation between Frost and the suspect, which is sure to have an emotional impact on viewers never mind the characters. The eerie silence we witness at this point is extremely necessary...

Another intriguing and very believable storyline with a terribly sad ending is sure to be another winner for viewers who have not witnessed this episode.
