The suspenseful crime thriller To Catch the Setting Sun by Richard I. Levine is set in Oahu. After thirteen years, Detective Henry Benjamin no longer only sees paradise; he also realizes that there is a dark side that is unknown to tourists. Benjamin is the target of a killer who is killing young Hawaiian women. Benjamin’s wife’s name is first on the killer’s list, and the victims are all known to Benjamin. The killer enrages Benjamin by leaving notes on the victims' bodies. Someone is prepared to destroy Benjamin to keep the truth hidden. During the investigation, Benjamin cannot trust anyone as danger awaits him at every turn. Benjamin is determined to solve the murders and get justice for the women.
To Catch the Setting Sun kept me on the edge of my seat with all the suspense and unexpected plot twists. It is a page-turner and had me guessing. The topics of poverty, crime, corruption, and abuse of power are handled with great care. Richard I. Levine shows different views of Oahu, the paradise, and the part where evil lurks in the background. There was no way I could predict who the killer was, and I was guessing until the end. The characters are superbly developed, interesting, authentic, and relatable. The story is action-packed, with danger waiting around every corner. Levine uses his knowledge of the area to deliver a brilliant and intriguing story. The ending is unexpected and surprising; I did not see it coming.
