I purchased the paper copy through bookdepository.com and the Kindle version is available on Amazon.
From the publisher:Caleb is the most interesting series sleuth that I've come across in a long time. He's deaf for starters, but it's the way he deals (or doesn't deal) with his condition that adds a fascinating layer to the investigation as well as to Caleb's life and backstory. As the blurb above states, he's been deaf since childhood and relies on lip reading, facial cues, and body language to "get by." He has aids that help him hear tone and noise, but he can't make out words distinctly.
Caleb Zelic, profoundly deaf since early childhood, has always lived on the outside - watching, picking up telltale signs people hide in a smile, a cough, 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. Caleb and his troubled friend Frankie, an ex-cop, start with one clue: Scott, the last word the murder victim texted to Caleb. But Scott is always one step ahead.
This gripping, original and fast-paced crime thriller is set between a big city and a small coastal town, Resurrection Bay, where Caleb is forced to confront painful memories. Caleb is a memorable protagonist who refuses to let his deafness limit his opportunities, or his participation in the investigation. But does his persistence border on stubbornness? And at what cost? As he delves deeper into the investigation Caleb uncovers unwelcome truths about his murdered friend – and himself.
Resurrection Bay is the exciting debut novel by Melbourne-based award-winning crime writer Emma Viskic.

Resurrection Bay is iBook Australia's Best Crime Novel of the Year. More importantly, book two in the series will be out in 2017 and book three in 2019. I hate waiting, but in the mean time I hope a U.S. publisher gets on this series. I don't mind ordering books from Australia, but I think Viskic could find an audience here.
