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.

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. He can't do it alone, though. Caleb and his troubled friend Frankie, an ex-cop, start with one clue: Scott, the last word the murder victim texted to Caleb.

Caleb 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.

(Edited description taken from library catalog.)

This is a interesting book: it has an interesting locale, Australia, not the usual New York or Los Angeles setting; it is interestingly written; and Caleb being deaf makes for an interesting protagonist.

Resurrection Bay was first published in Australia in 2015 by Echo, and this particular edition was published in London in 2017 by Pushkin Press (like that name).

I decided to read Resurrection Bay after reading a good review of its sequel, And Fire Came Down, which is to be published in October 2018, which I intend to read.
