Shortlisted for the 2012 Crime Writers' Association New Blood Dagger for best first novel

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.

MEDIA 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'
crimesquad.com

`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

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

“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.
Would most likely look out for his next book.
