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.

Sarah Broadhurst

Good People Synopsis

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 crime and 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.

Good People Press Reviews

'GOOD PEOPLE's corkscrew plot skewers small-town hypocrisy with a wry smile and a sniff of disgust. An entertaining debut with more stings in the tail than a bag of scorpions.'
VAL McDERMID

'a terrific novel that blows a fresh breath in to crime fiction ... as if Ian Rankin had been transported to Wales'

'A cross between Frost and Hot Fuzz ... one of the most interesting and enjoyable crime books I've read for a long time'

'I read it in two sittings and was well rewarded. Twists and turns made the plot lively and fast paced'
