The naked bodies of three young men are found, arranged in a triangle, in a grave at an old burial site and an American anthropologist insists to Frost that these are ritual killings. However the fact that she has a book to promote and reports of unrest among local Eastern European immigrant workers suggest that the murders are not mystical at all. Ever the maverick, Frost enjoys crossing swords with James Callum, an unpleasant local business man who is going to tear down the local youth club to make way for new offices. When Callum's fitness instructress mistress, Rosemary, is found dead on her houseboat, and evidence also suggests that another of Callum's girlfriends died in suspicious circumstances some years earlier Frost cannot wait to pounce. First, however, he must get past Callum's adoring personal assistant, Michael. Perhaps a spot of breaking and entering would help Frost find the clues he is after. Written by don @ minifie-1

Two Very Interesting Cases
3 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two incidents. The first involves a discovery of three bodies in a shallow grave. They are wrapped in shrouds and buried in a triangular configuration. The investigation leads to an investigation of possible Satanic rites. An anthropologist gets involved and focuses her attention on Mullett. The second involves a high level real estate developer and his partner, a beautiful woman with an incredibly harsh edge. The man is attracted to women and it seems that bad things happen to them once the partner discovers them. One beautiful young woman who works at a health club is bludgeoned and her houseboat burned. Each case has an interesting conclusion. Frost gets in so deep that he begins to be the victim of the person he is attempting to convict. It's a shame, but there is only one more episode left in this series.
