Pulp crime collection: collects the title story and seven others, all originally published as part of a series (18 installments in all, eight by Wandrei) in ''Clues Detective Magazine'' in the early 1930's. Edited and with an introduction by D. H. Olson: illustrated by Les Edwards.
''Part Sherlock Holmes, part Shadow, Frost stood apart from the gritty trench-cloaked private eyes of the hard-boiled genre. At once looking back to the genteel, ratiocinative detectives of the 19th century and forward to the gimmick-laden adventurers of the James Bond generation, Frost was eccentric, enigmatic, and very, very, deadly.''
