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.
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.'
