Chop Suey - A Darby Stansfield Thriller



Add one lovable dope.

A cook with a secret past.
Throw in a couple of gang members.
Mix in a pair of Chinatown detectives.
Combine it all with Ling Chi, death by 1,000 cuts.
And you have the perfect recipe for Chop Suey.

When disgraced sales associate Darby Stansfield discovers he has six months to save his job, he does what any normal person would do. He freaks.

Desperate to resurrect his career at Teleco Wireless, he conjures up an international scheme filled with the promise of endless high-spending clients. It's brilliant, it's successful, and it involves doing business with organized crime.

But soon those closest to him find themselves caught up in his dangerous plan, and one of these unknowingly has the power to destroy him. Darby must now make a tough decision––give up on the one good idea he ever had or risk it all.

The second Darby Stansfield thriller will be out in late November or early December of 2011.


"Chop Suey is a fast, funny and well-plotted thriller––It's not easy to write comedy, introduce a vicious serial killer, and navigate between the two."––Reading Review

"It is both intrinsically funny and inherently evil, a strangely intoxicating blend, one that keeps the action rolling."— SeattlePI

"Hutchinson did an excellent job of bringing his characters to life, weaving several stories together and bringing them to an exciting conclusion."— The Book Review
