Caleb Zelic, profoundly deaf since early childhood, has always lived on the outside – watching, picking up tell-tale signs people hide in a smile, a cough, a kiss. When a childhood friend is murdered, a sense of guilt and a determination to prove his own innocence sends Caleb on a hunt for the killer. But he can’t do it alone. Caleb and his troubled friend Frankie, an ex-cop, start with one clue: Scott, the last word the murder victim texted to Caleb. But Scott is always one step ahead.

This gripping, original and fast-paced crime thriller is set between a big city and a small coastal town, Resurrection Bay, where Caleb is forced to confront painful memories. Caleb is a memorable protagonist who refuses to let his deafness limit his opportunities, or his participation in the investigation. But does his persistence border on stubbornness? And at what cost? As he delves deeper into the investigation Caleb uncovers unwelcome truths about his murdered friend – and himself.

My new favourite author


I'm so glad I didn't read this book when it first came out because it would have killed me to have wait for the sequel!! Caleb is a wonderful character and the plot really had me in right from the first sentence. I think fans of fast paced books will also enjoy this but what I really enjoyed was how well written and thought provoking it was. I'm off to buy the second book now!





A very boring book l am sure it will appeal to some readers but not this one.





I loved this book! Great characters, great plot, great setting. It really made me think too. I was really drawn to the lead character Caleb. He's a fascinating character and the author's research really shone through. He's deaf and lipreads, but he has trouble understanding everything going on around him, and that really ramped up the tension for me as a reader. He's also very human and although he's pretty good in a fight, the violence gets to him, which is a nice change from your usual bash and forget crime hero
