BOOK REVIEW - To Catch The Setting Sun by Richard I Levine
To Catch The Setting Sun
by Richard I Levine
September 5 - September 30, 2022 Virtual Book Tour
There’s a killer loose on the island of Oahu. His targets? Young, native-Hawaiian women. But it also appears that he’s targeting and taunting Honolulu police detective Henry Benjamin who knew each victim and whose wife, Maya, had been the first name on that list. In addition to battling his personal demons, this New York transplant’s aggressive style didn’t sit well with his laid-back colleagues who viewed Henry’s uncharacteristic lack of progress in the investigation as evidence that fueled ongoing rumors that he could be the killer. Was he, or could it have been someone within the municipal hierarchy with a vendetta? As it was, after thirteen years on the job Henry had been disillusioned with paradise. His career choice long killed any fantasy of living in a grass hut on a wind-swept beach, being serenaded by the lazy sounds of the ocean and a slack key guitar. Instead, it had opened his eyes to a Hawaii that tourists will never see.
Praise for To Catch the Setting Sun:
"One of the best crime novels I have read in a long time!"

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Richard Levine and Partners In Crime Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.
In To Catch the Setting Sun, a killer is on the loose of Oahu and is targeting Young, native-Hawaiian women while also taunting Honolulu police detective Henry Benjamin. This is personal, Henry knew all the women and his wife, Maya was the first name on the list. Battling his personal demons as any New Yorker would, he isn't popular amongst his laid-back colleagues who begin to suspect he may be the killer and that explains his lack of progress.
This book is fast paced full of twists and turns. Prepare to settle in, this book can easily be read in a day. Police procedurals are one of my favorite genres and this one did not disappoint. The cast of characters are brilliantly written and realistic. I could see this happening today. The personality depth of the characters added to the story in meaningful ways. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves crime thrillers and look forward to reading more from this author!
Overall Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Read an excerpt:
Richard I Levine is a native New Yorker raised in the shadows of Yankee Stadium. After dabbling in several occupations and a one-year coast to coast wanderlust trip, this one-time volunteer fireman, bartender, and store manager returned to school to become a chiropractor. A twenty-one year cancer survivor, he’s a strong advocate for the natural healing arts. Levine has four Indy-published novels and his fifth work, To Catch The Setting Sun, has just been completed and he's anticipating a spring 2022 release. In 2006 he wrote, produced and was on-air personality of the Dr. Rich Levine show on Seattle’s KKNW 1150AM and after a twenty-five year practice in Bellevue, Washington, he closed up shop in 2017 and moved to Oahu to pursue a dream of acting and being on Hawaii 5-O. While briefly working as a ghostwriter/community liaison for a local Honolulu City Councilmember, he appeared as a background actor in over twenty-five 5-Os and Magnum P.Is. Richard can be seen in his first co-star role in the Magnum P.I. third season episode “Easy Money”. He presently resides in Hawaii.
