If you love D I Jack Frost, you'll love D I Glyn Capaldi, maverick cop.
Introducing 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.

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

“Ah a twist....”
This was a new author for me......I think I started out with high expectations which dropped a little on reading - but enjoyed the twist at the end.
