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’ reviewingtheevidence.com

Our protagonist is both a rebel and likeable, although you do wonder, at times, why he insists on continuing when he is told to stop, and why he receives so little support when he appears to be on to something. I did struggle a little with the police reporting lines in trying to work out who was calling the shots for what. But the intrigue levels and story structure meant the issue didn't become too big a distraction.
This is probably not as strong as the two prequels, but a Hutton novel beats much of what is out there in this genre. 9/10
I thought it was a good read as it kept me interested and turning the pages.
