Resurrection Bay (Caleb Zelic, #1) by Emma Viskic

Caleb Zelic, profoundly deaf since early childhood, has always lived on the outside - watching, picking up telltale 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.

True to form, Resurrection Bay begins with a dead body. While Melbourne-based author Emma Viskic is evidently familiar with the conventions of the crime genre, this is where her invention immediately kicks in. The dead man is cradled in the arms of his best friend, who is profoundly deaf and waiting for the paramedics to arrive. It's an arresting start, establishing both the tone dark and the style telegraphic of Viskic's first crime novel, featuring an unusual and engaging hero. Caleb Zelic has been deaf since a bout of meningitis at the age of five, but is reluctant to acknowledge his hearing loss in public. As his ex-wife, Kat, tells him somewhat testily, his desire to pass as normal has resulted in all sorts of problems for waitresses, taxi drivers and those who love him, not to mention the fact that he may inadvertently end up with whipped cream in his long black.

Caleb is a Melbourne private investigator whose Trust Works agency has been engaged by an insurance company to look into a some major warehouse robberies which bear all the hallmarks of being an inside job. Caleb calls on his old police officer friend Senior Constable Gary Marsden to do some digging behind the scenes. His partner in Trust Works is Frankie Reynolds, an ex-cop who has a fair amount of her own baggage to tote around. Could he really have got things so wrong? Prepare yourself for an intricate plot with more tentacles than an octopus.
