Publisher's Summary

DS Glyn Capaldi, half Welsh, half Italian, all maverick, returns in the CWA shortlisted series blowing fresh life into crime fiction. DS Glyn Capaldi, exiled to the big, empty middle of Wales to atone for past sins in Cardiff, is called in to investigate a human skeleton that has been uncovered during the excavations for a wind farm in a remote valley. The body is missing its head and its hands. Identity erasure or a ritual killing?
Glyn's assertion that there must be a local connection is overruled by his superiors. They believe that the body has been transported and dumped, a theory that gains support when additional bodies start to pile up. But Capaldi is unconvinced, and sets out to prove that there is someone within the local community capable of achieving the levels of cold and manipulative brutality that have been demonstrated.

Welsh Country Life

For DS Glyn Capaldi living in rural Wales seems a bitter exile from Cardiff, but there is more to it than just lost tractors, sheep and wet weather, it seems. Hutton writes an entertaining story with humour and suspense. I found it hard to stop listening to the story and get on with other things. A good story and a good narrator - Hutton will definitely be on my list of authors to watch out for in future.
