February 2012 eBook of the Month.
Shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger 2012.
CWA Judges' comment: “A kick in the pants to the traditional maverick cop novel by a master of English prose. Good People breaks a stereotype in this pacey debut.”
The Lovereading view...
Small town hypocrisy shamelessly satirised in a twisting murder plot in rural Wales. An entertaining, cleverly plotted debut.
Good People by Ewart Hutton
Introducing D.S. Glyn Capaldi, maverick cop. Fallen from grace in Cardiff and exiled to be the catch-all detective in the big bit in the middle that God gave to the sheep. A place where nothing of any significance is meant to happen, a place where supposedly he can do little harm. But trouble has a way of catching-up with Capaldi. Six men and a young woman disappear into the night. They don't all reappear. The ones that do are good people with a good explanation. Only Capaldi remains unconvinced. In the face of opposition from the locals, he delves deeper and starts to uncover a network of conflicts, betrayals and depravity that resonates below the outwardly calm surface of rural respectability. Capaldi is back in the saddle.
'GOOD PEOPLE's - An entertaining debut with more stings in the tail than a bag of scorpions.'
'Glyn Capaldi makes a hugely impressive first appearance in GOOD PEOPLE - teasingly elusive, and convincing, set in dark woodlands and small towns that conceal more than the reader can possibly suspect.'
