A MYSTERIOUS MESSAGE

Deaf PI Caleb Zelic has always been an outsider, estranged from family and friends. But when he receives a text that his brother, Anton, is in danger, Caleb sees it as a chance at redemption.

A REMOTE ISLAND

He tracks Anton down to an isolated, wind-punished island, where secrets run deep and resentments deeper.

A KILLER IN THE SHADOWS

When a killer starts terrorising the isolated community, the brothers must rely on each other like never before. But trust comes at a deadly price...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the Caleb Zelic thrillers - .., --

A mazey delight of a mystery - Ian Rankin

Clever, brilliantly observed ... Viskic just keeps getting better. Her prose is elegant and economical and her storytelling is taut, realistic and full of surprises - Adrian McKinty

The tension builds from the very first page... brutal but compassionate - The Times

There is no Australian crime hero like Caleb Zelic. There's no Nordic, American, English or French crime hero like him. He lives in a genre of his own: the perfect outsider in an uncaring world. Inventive, loyal, tormented and whip-smart, he stands at the moral centre of a twisting tale of corruption - Jock Serong, author of The Rules of Backyard Cricket

Stunning... original and splendidly plotted [with] a superb cast of main characters - The Times, Crime Book of the Month

An Australian thriller at its finest. A captivating read from first page to last - Jane Harper, author of The Dry

Trailing literary prizes in its wake... superbly characterized... well above most contemporary crime fiction - Financial Times, Books of the Year

Outstanding... Pacy, violent but with a big thundering heart - Eva Dolan

More than lives up to its hype... Fierce, fast-moving, violent... it is as exciting a debut as fellow Australian Jane Harper's The Dry, and I can think of no higher praise - Daily Mail

There is romance, and there is violence - plus a devastating denouement... Zelic is a good man in a wicked world and it will be a real pleasure to meet him again - Evening Standard

A worthy successor [to Resurrection Bay]... a fascinating world, very cleverly painted through a prose that is spare and yet extremely effective... [with] an uncanny ability to skewer conventions and pierce through to the truth - Thriller Books Journal

A tightly plotted, sophisticated thriller - The Writes of Woman (blog)

An addictive mix of compelling characters and gripping plot - Crime Thriller Hound (blog)

Plenty of intrigue in plot and character - David's Book World (blog)

The opening chapter had me completely hooked! I was absolutely enthralled... a taut storyline, addictive atmosphere and compelling narrative had me reading this book every spare moment I had - Crime Book Junkie (blog)

The subtle mix of humour, intriguing mystery, fire and a reprise for the best characters from the first novel make for a dark entertaining thriller - Nudge Books

It's a scorcher... an utterly compelling and thought provoking read - Raven Crime Reads

For memorable protagonists, look no further than Emma Viskic - Jane Harper, BookPage

Ned Kelly Award-winner Viskic combines nuanced characters and thoughtful plotting in her impressive sequel to Resurrection Bay - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Viskic won the Ned Kelly Award last year for Resurrection Bay, her debut, and her second in the series promises to be just as devastating - and ever so Australian, with a bushfire alert and particularly Australian conflicts ratcheting up the tension throughout - CrimeReads, Fall's Best Sophomore Fiction

This is crime fiction at its best. Loved Jane Harper's The Dry? Read this - Written by Sime

A thoroughly character-driven story, exploring the intricacies of family and race in Australia. And dammit. The wait for book 3 is going to drive me nuts - Editing Everything

From Sherlock Holmes to Jack Irish, the stubborn sleuth has been around for a while, but Viskic has managed to breathe new life into an old formula with Caleb Zelic - Townsville Bulletin

Emma Viskic is a terrific, gutsy writer with great insight into the murkiness of both criminal and heroic motivations - Emily Maguire, author of An Isolated Incident

This is a plot that keeps us guessing to the end [before] it reaches a dramatic but ultimately hopeful resolution and now we can only wait on tenterhooks for the next instalment. Viskic takes her place up there with Australia's new legion of uber-talented female crime writers such as Jane Harper and Candice Fox, deservedly so. - Better Reading, book of the week

A page-turning crime thriller - ArtsHub

Offers more of the great characters and thrilling storytelling as the first book. For crime fans unacquainted with Caleb Zelic, I would recommend setting aside a weekend and settling in - Advertiser

Viskic's descriptions of place are often so intense you can smell them - Canberra Times

Another gripping story... The immediacy of its intrigue, and Caleb's struggle with the traumatic aftershock of earlier events, makes this second novel even more difficult to put down than the first - Big Issue Australia

Beautifully balanced characterisations, action and setting - Newtown Review of Books

Zelic's second outing doesn't disappoint: Viskic's prose sprints along, sprinkled with Australian colloquialisms deserving of Kath and Kim... Great stuff - Courier Mail

Outstanding... gripping and violent... a hero who is original and appealing - Guardian

PRAISE FOR THOSE WHO PERISH - -

As compelling and intriguing as ever - Viskic's best yet. Caleb Zelic is one of the great, flawed heroes of crime fiction - Chris Hammer, author of Scrublands

Tense and atmospheric, a stripped-down crime thriller that delivers twists until the last page - Garry Disher, author of Peace

Has everything you want in a thriller - it's tight, tense, atmospheric and twisty - Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child

The action is ruthless and relentless; the characters colourful and credible; the narrative packs an emotional punch. Further proof, if any were needed, that Aussie noir is now where it's at - Sunday Times (Crime Club)

Superb... The author's remarkable gift for enabling hearing readers to imagine Zelic's often silent or inaudible world lifts this above the pack. This impressive page-turner enables even newcomers to feel an immediate affinity with Viskic's flawed lead - Publishers Weekly, starred review

A taut and fitting finale, delivering great characters and sense of place, as well as humanity. Viskic's prose sings - Craig Sisterson, Mystery Scene
