Product Details


2018 Davitt Award Adult Novel Winner
Longlisted for the 2019 International Dublin Literary Award

“Ned Kelly Award–winner Viskic combines nuanced characters and thoughtful plotting in her impressive sequel to Resurrection Bay, which introduced hearing-impaired Australian PI Caleb Zelic. ” — Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

” Caleb’s second outing establishes him as a sensitive protagonist in a harsh world. Hard-boiled crime fiction is thriving in Australia, and Viskic is one of the reasons why.” — Booklist

“For memorable protagonists, look no further than Emma Viskic.” — Jane Harper, BookPage

“A consistently high level of tension… an exciting ride.” — Crime Review

“There is romance, and there is violence — plus a devastating denouement… Zelic is a good man in a wicked world and it will be a real pleasure to meet him again.” — Evening Standard

“A worthy successor [to Resurrection Bay]… A fascinating world, very cleverly painted through a prose that is spare and yet extremely effective… [with] an uncanny ability to skewer conventions and pierce through to the truth.” — Thriller Books Journal 

“It’s a scorcher… an utterly compelling and thought provoking read.” — Raven Crime Reads

“This is crime fiction at its best. Loved Jane Harper’s The Dry? Read this.” – Written by Sime

“Emma Viskic is a terrific, gutsy writer with great insight into the murkiness of both criminal and heroic motivations.” – Emily Maguire, author of An Isolated Incident

“A plot that keeps us guessing to the end … Viskic takes her place up there with Australia’s new legion of uber-talented female crime writers such a Jane Harper and Candice Fox, deservedly so.”Better Reading, book of the week

“The opening chapter had me completely HOOKED! I was absolutely enthralled… A taut storyline, addictive atmosphere and compelling narrative had me reading this book every spare moment I had… And Fire Came Down just BLEW me away – if you want a series that will knock you for six, grab you instantly and keep you engaged throughout – you need to buy this book!” — Crime Book Junkie (blog)

“An addictive mix of compelling characters and gripping plot.” — Crime Thriller Hound (blog)

“A tightly plotted, sophisticated thriller.” — The Writes of Woman (blog)

“An immensely talented stylist, her characters jump off the page… vividly expressive series.” — (blog)

“Plenty of intrigue in plot and character.” — David’s Book World (blog)
