The books certainly suceeds in plot and character-wise is mostly authentic. Frost is perhaps lacking some of his irreverence and crude wit - he is more serious and intense in this early imagining. Mullett also diverts slightly from Wingfield's representation. He is less reprehensible, more misguided than consciously manipulative and devious.
All in all, recommended as a worthwhile read for Frost fans.
R. D. Wingfield,created the original character.
I would like to read the next two books written by James Henry but have not had success in finding them on line or at my local library.
