This is my first taste of this incredible award winning Aussie crime series by Emma Viskic featuring troubled and deaf PI Caleb Zelic, set in Melbourne. I was plunged into the series where significant events had taken place previously, but Viskic gives sufficient information that I didn't feel like that I was flailing around too much. The story opens with Caleb at a children's farm to meet a new client, a meeting organised through the exchange of emails, only to find him dead, shot through the ...more

Emma Viskic's series featuring deaf PI Caleb Zelic series is turning out to be a very strong series indeed, with this third episode being the best yet!

Caleb is back in Melbourne, taking slow steps to reconcile with his wife Kat who is expecting their child. After two miscarriages they are understandably nervous and Caleb is doing his best to make good decisions about his actions to keep them both safe. However, when a new client is murdered before Caleb can even meet him and his ex-partner

Darkness For Light is the third book in the superb Private Investigator Caleb Zelic series, set in the stifling heat of Melbourne, Australia. Although preferable it certainly isn't essential to have read any of the preceding instalments to understand and enjoy this one so feel free to jump right on in. Caleb is still trying to pick up the pieces of his life since the fire that ravaged everything a few months previously. But when a prospective client he was about to meet is murdered and Frankie's ...more

Darkness For Light is the third Caleb Zelic thriller by award-winning Australian author, Emma Viskic. Caleb Zelic is in a good place: things are going well in his no-longer-on-the-brink-of-divorce relationship with Kat, who is expecting his child; a patient therapist has him more settled and intent on making good decisions; and he is finding friendship and support in the deaf community he had earlier rejected.

But then his possible new client turns up dead before they even meet, and the AFP are

I would like to thank Netgalley and Bonnier Zaffre for an advance copy of Darkness for Light, the third novel to feature Melbourne based PI Caleb Zelic.

An unfortunate encounter with a State Police detective forces Cal to get in touch with his ex-partner, Frankie, a woman on the run. With neither of them trusting each other they are forced to work together when Frankie’s niece, Tilda, is kidnapped.

I thoroughly enjoyed Darkness for Light which is a rollercoaster read full of violence, double

I recently had an opportunity to read Em Viskic’s Darkness for Light as an advanced review copy. The third in her Caleb Zelic series, Darkness for Light was a gripping story, masterfully told, that takes the reader on an emotional ride. If you haven’t yet immersed yourself in Resurrection Bay and And Fire Came Down, then it is highly recommended you start with those two before jumping into Darkness for Light, as the complexity of Caleb is best understood with his back history.

In Darkness For

4.75 Stars. It is no secret I am a huge fan of Emma Viskic’s Caleb Zelic Thriller series, having nothing but admiration for her taut, propulsive (and brave) writing style and the authenticity and grit of its characters. Read my reviews of Resurrection Bay (Book 1) and And Fire Came Down (Book 2).

I read Book 3 in a single day. I did not think it possible, but the narrative in Darkness for Light is even more taut and compelling than the novels that precede it. Emerging from the shadow of past

Entertaining crime read.

I do like the Caleb Zelic character, a deaf investigator not being the norm.
