Frost investigates the murder of a 15 year old girl who disappeared while completing her newspaper round. He also has to look into vandalism at a local churchyard as Supt. Mullett fears it might be the work of satanists but it is also where the 15 year old's body is found. He also has to deal with Mrs. Compton who has been receiving threatening phone calls. The Comptons are dealers of rare books and keep a large and valuable inventory in their home. When Mr. Compton is killed in a house fire, Frost quickly has a prime suspect. Finally, Frost receives a visit from his late wife's sister who now lives in America and doesn't seem to be in any hurry to return. Written by garykmcd

Terrific second episode!
6 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jack Frost deals with the disappearance of a young girl doing her paper round and a woman who is receiving constant death threats and disturbing phone calls.

Not With Kindness certainly make you think whether or not your children are safe outside, and with the constant headlines where kids are taken off the streets kind of rings true in this episode. Is the young girl dead? Where is her body? A round-the-clock investigation ensues...

Meanwhile, Jack has to put up with his irritating sister-in-law, although irritating may be the wrong word to use!

David Jason looked comfortable in his new role, and even though Not With Kindness was only the second episode of A Touch of Frost, you can see how Jason carries it off with true style. A great episode with great twists.
