DI Jack Frost, along with Det. Sgt. Nash who has just transferred from London, investigates the murder of Vicky Phillips, a local physiotherapist who was stabbed to death in her car. Frost suspects one of her patients, Jonathan Meyerbridge, who has a criminal record but is now a born-again Christian. The local butcher, Mr. Sykes, is also acting strangely and denies knowing the dead woman even though she had keys to the vacant flat above his shop. Frost is also investigating a series of smash and grab robberies in the commercial district. The culprits drive a vehicle through the front window of a business and take anything they can within a minute or so before they scamper off. Written by garykmcd

Centers on Religious Hypocrisy
15 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very attractive woman receives a phone call to meet a man. She drives across a field and parks near a church. Cut a few hours into the future and we see that she has been brutally stabbed and beaten, covered with blood. What ensues are a hypocritical minister who has had a relationship with this woman, a jealous butcher, and a young woman who has been through the school of hard knocks. Frost must wade through a series of lies and deceptions. Somehow this minister is some kind of chick magnet. Women can't seem to get enough of him. He has a long suffering wife who lives for him, hence the title. As is usually the case, be aware of all suspects as you make your way through this episode.
