The main protagonist is Chief Detective Koa who is trying to avoid politics and solve crimes. This is the first book in the series. I, now, recommend all three of them. Detective Koa is called in on a brutal, ritualistic murder. His boss, the Chief of Police, is easily swayed by political considerations. The murder is complicated by the fact that it is on a US Navy live-fire range and may bring many island notables in for scrutiny.
There are a wealth of characters that somehow does not become confusing. The plot is intricate and the ending is carefully hidden in the weeds.
I enjoyed the book and Koa’s implacable tenacity.
