Über diesen Titel
Frost, assisted and annoyed by his new sidekick, is assigned to the disappearance of a prostitute's daughter and with characteristic rashness he launches into the case. But when they unearth an ancient skeleton and the fresh corpse of a bank employee turns up, Frost is also drawn into an unsolved bank robbery from an almost forgotten past. His method - to risk first his career, and then his life...From the Back Cover:
