About the Book
After a lifetime of bad decisions troubled PI Caleb Zelic is finally making good ones. He's in therapy, reconnecting with the Deaf community, and reconciling with his beloved wife.
But he can’t escape his past.
A violent confrontation forces Caleb back into contact with his double-crossing partner, Frankie. When her niece is kidnapped, Frankie and Caleb must work together to save the child’s life. But their efforts will risk everything, including their own lives.
The Caleb Zelic series have been shortlisted for, and won, awards all over the world. Viskic’s thrillers feature a unique protagonist—the profoundly deaf Caleb Zelic—superior writing, pacy plot, depth of character, and compelling
engagement with social issues.
Praise for Darkness for Light
“Another clever, brilliantly observed novel from Emma Viskic. Viskic just keeps getting better. Her prose is elegant and economical and her storytelling is taut, realistic and full of surprises. Caleb Zelic is the perfect character to explore Melbourne's diverse culture and all aspects of its society, high and low, ugly and beautiful. Darkness for Light is a winner.” - Adrian McKinty, author of The Chain.
“A breathless urgency takes hold and simply will not relent. Viskic's best work yet. Sharp, caustic dialogue, bursts of wild, kinetic action and moments of deep character insight. This novel does it all, and sounds like no-one else, anywhere." - Jock Serong. author of The Rules of Backyard Cricket, Preservation and On the Java Ridge.
