Darkness for Light – Emma Viskic

Third in the series featuring Caleb Zelic, the deaf private investigator.  In short, this maintains the quality of the first two (do read them in order) and gives a roller coaster ride, full of tension with occasional flashes of humor.

The story revolves around one of the hero’s clients being murdered. In the inevitable escalation, Caleb and his somewhat tricky ex-partner, Frankie, see the body count rise while they are racing to find a kidnapped little girl.

The writing is sharp, the story and the action flow smoothly, and the characters are more than interesting enough to make you want to know how things turn out.

Highly recommended.
