Res­ur­rec­tion Bay by Emma Vis­kic (Pushkin Ver­tigo, £12.99)

Sunday Herald Life - - BOOKS REVIEW -

The first in a planned crime se­ries fea­tur­ing Caleb Zelic, who is deaf but has a ta­lent for reading peo­ple’s body lan­guage. As boss of a se­cu­rity firm, he’s asked his life­long friend Gary, a cop, to help out on a job. Gary ends up mur­dered, but not be­fore send­ing a text say­ing that some­one called “Scott” is after him. Caleb and his busi­ness part­ner Frankie seek an­swers in Res­ur­rec­tion Bay, where Caleb and Gary grew up and where Caleb’s es­tranged wife still lives. But they’re put­ting them­selves on the killer’s radar, and the stress may be driv­ing re­cov­er­ing al­co­holic Frankie back to drink.
