Moonrise, Sunset

Hours after agreeing to marry How Kum Menon, Vanita Sundram is murdered, stabbed while asleep in her fiance's arms. More killings follow, and the reluctant and grieving How Kum is swept up in the police investigation. As time passes and the murders remain unsolved, several self-proclaimed ‘experts’ muscle in: How Kum's drunken 'Uncle' Oscar with his underworld links: the unlikely double-act of an American psycho-sexual healer and his matronly psychic sidekick: and a Hindu holy-man…A political thriller in the tradition of Graham Greene and Eric Ambler, Moonrise, Sunset enhances Gopal Baratham's reputation as Singapore's most brilliant and controversial writer

    soon as I set eyes on Vanita, I knew that the person I had been waiting for had arrived.

    We identify things not by what they look like but by where they are taking us. There is a world of difference between sunset and moonrise. Sunset leads into the darkness, moonrise into the glorious light of love.
