An addictive new thriller from multi-award-winning author Emma Viskic.

You should be careful, Mr Zelic. Because the person who killed Peter Taylor will almost certainly kill again.' The detective's glassy eyes didn't blink. 'And you're already in their sights.'

Deaf PI Caleb Zelic has always been an outsider, estranged from family and friends. But when he receives a text that his brother, Anton, is in danger, Caleb sees it as a chance at redemption.

He tracks Anton down to a remote, wind-punished island, where secrets run deep and resentments deeper. When a killer starts terrorising the isolated community, the brothers must rely on each other like never before. But trust comes at a deadly price…

'Tense and atmospheric, a stripped-down crime thriller that delivers twists until the last page' - GARRY DISHER
