Rate this:

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 has 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. Capaldi is back in the saddle.

Yeah it's okay, but not as good as I had been hoping it would be. Ending got confusing with all the back and forth and I had pretty much lost interest by the time it all ended. Main character alright. Completed 6/13/18.

I like this character. Capaldi is self-aware, wry, and has a sense of humor about himself foibles included.

Good People is a complex and twisting read. Just when you think you have figured out where it’s going, it takes another turn. Capaldi is a very engaging character. I was quite impressed with this first book and plan to continue on with the series. A word of warning about the degree of sexual depravity that this book contains, the storyline becomes quite gruesome in places but overall, I found Good People to be a dark and engrossing thriller.

The sexual paraphilia material is unnecessary and far too explicit for a mystery novel.

A little too much story--the plot and characters becoming convoluted

Very enjoyable read. Well developed characters. Interesting background on gypsies and their subculture. Some violence.
