    You'd think that a dead partner and an estranged wife would be enough to discourage Australian PI Caleb Zelic from investigating another murder. But you'd be wrong. A young woman uses what is apparently hastily learned sign language to ask Caleb to help her moments before she is run over by a van. The police and the woman's wealthy father say it was an accident. Caleb's gut tells him she was murdered to keep her from talking to him—ironic as Caleb lost most of his hearing as a child. Caleb's search for answers takes him back to Resurrection Bay, where his brother, Ant, is managing his newfound sobriety and Caleb's wife, Kat, has recently returned. Kat is Caleb's bridge to the aboriginal Koori community, which appears to be the target of a series of arsons. As Caleb learns more about the victim, he sees a link between her death and the troubles in his hometown. Caleb's second outing (following Resurrection Bay, 2018) establishes him as a sensitive protagonist in a harsh world. Hard-boiled crime fiction is thriving in Australia, and Viskic is one of the reasons why. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
