LoveReading Expert Review of Good People

February 2013 Debut of the Month.

Shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger 2012.

Glyn Capaldi joins the ranks of ace, flawed cops in his first outing among the God-fearing 'good people' of a Welsh sheep farming community.  Recently demoted from a position in Cardiff and very unpopular in his new environment, he is a great creation in what promises to be a great new series.  Interestingly written in the first person, it is full of twists and surprises that grab you in from the start - highly recommended.

Good People Synopsis

Shortlisted for the 2012 Crime Writers' Association New Blood Dagger for best first novelIntroducing DS Glyn Capaldi, half Welsh, half-Italian, all maverick. He's 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 have 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. D.S. Capaldi is back in the saddle.

Ewart Hutton Press Reviews

'GOOD PEOPLE's - An entertaining debut with more stings in the tail than a bag of scorpions.'
VAL McDERMID

'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.'
CAMPBELL ARMSTRONG
