Wild People

by Ewart Hutton

Wild People Synopsis

A DS Glyn Capaldi Mystery DS Glyn Capaldi is in hospital recuperating from concussion and the after-effects of a serious car crash. Worse than that, the young woman travelling in the car with him that night is dead. Glyn is initially riven with guilt, until he starts to question the possibility that it may not have been an accident. But, if that is the case, who was the target? Has he made an enemy capable of achieving that level of planning? Or, if not him, what could a young woman have possibly done to warrant such harsh punishment? As he explores the background to these questions, Glyn uncovers a conspiracy that envelops arson, torture, blackmail, and leaves a clutter of bodies that further muddy the already deep dark waters.

Wild People Press Reviews

`Everyone who thinks that Ian Rankin doesn't write fast enough should give newcomer Hutton a try' Books of the Year, Kirkus Praise for Ewart Hutton's GOOD PEOPLE: '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'
