Profoundly deaf since early childhood, Caleb has always lived on the outside - watching and picking up tell-tale signs people hide in a smile, a cough or 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. But he can’t do it alone....

Excellent book and great 1st book

Series would be great for this defective detective. Interest held throughout. Surprise ending and thoroughly suspenseful page by page. Absorbing with real life characters with all life's problems. I enjoyed every minute listening to the wonderful narration. You can't go wrong getting this book. 5 stars all the way. Mike Dunn

Exciting mystery

Exciting and intense at times, with interesting, complex characters. I figured out some of this complex mystery, but not all of it. There was plenty of “who do I trust, who don’t I” to keep me doubting almost everyone.

The audiobook was solidly narrated. The reader has a good voice, though not all of his voices were distinguishable from each other, which at times caused me a little confusion over who was saying what. The audio didn’t do much to enhance the book, but it didn’t hurt it either. I wouldn’t mind listening to the next one, but I’d be happy reading it in print too.

Brilliant and totally gripping

This is the second Aussie crime writer I have been impressed with recently. It is a combination of too much light and too much coffee that seems to produce writers of wit and powerful descriptions.

I was also very impressed with the narrator. This is a true five star listen.
