Good Police Drama Amid Issues
13 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man who runs a box factory treats employees like dirt. They pretty much give their lives for him and he fires them at a moment's notice. One day, his own son is killed during a robbery. His other son, who already resents him but is a bit spineless, is filled with anger. It becomes obvious that the proprietor may become a target. He goes into hiding. He is truly a cad and a womanizer and has no moral compass. He is also pretty rich. Frost finds himself in the middle of this, having to protect clients he can barely stand. When things don't go their way immediately, the blame starts. There's even a call to Mullett. There are numerous suspects and figuring out the culprit is part of the fun. There is also a subplot involving the lesbian partner of Frost and her relationship with a woman in a family she has assisted. This leads to some real violence and a possible breach of ethics. There is also an intense scene with Frost's love, Shirley, as she confronts him about his missing her mother's funeral. Lots of stuff going on.
