Overview

Add one lovable dope.
Layer in a vicious serial killer.
Throw in a couple of Triad 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, Darby conjures up an international scheme filled with the promise of endless, high-spending clients. It's brilliant, it's international, it would have his boss snooping and his best friend sweating, but it has Darby on a plane to Hong Kong where he signs his latest client, a Chinese gang.

Meanwhile, bodies are piling up in San Francisco and Darby has no idea that his brilliant plan has just put him on collision course with the killer.

To make matters worse, those closest to him find themselves caught up in his dangerous plan. Darby must now make a tough decision -- give up on the one good idea he ever had or risk it all.

Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth A. White Book Reviews - Elizabeth White
"Hutchinson deftly weaves his three plot lines together in an increasingly frenetic pace, rocketing to an explosive conclusion."-- Elizabeth A. White Book Reviews
The Book Review - Allen Cook
Ty 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
Reading Review - Mark McKenna
"Chop Suey, a debut novel by Ty Hutchinson, is a fast, funny and well-plotted thriller set in San Francisco and Hong Kong. Chop Suey mostly stays light and fun, then turns gritty when the storyline calls for it. I enjoyed the book. It kept me turning pages. It's not easy to write comedy, introduce a vicious serial killer, and navigate successfully between the two. I rated this book a 9 out of 10."--Reading Review
BlogCritics - Leslie Wright
"It is both intrinsically funny and inherently evil, a strangely intoxicating blend, one that keeps the action rolling."--BlogCritics

Meet the Author

Hello. My name is Ty Hutchinson.

I'm the author of the best selling Darby Stansfield novels. Readers have described them as Tarantino meets The Office with a splash of romance. I've also released Corktown, the first novel in my new series featuring FBI Agent, Abby Kane. I'm very excited about it. Before this whole author thing came up, I spent twenty-two years in advertising. I'm done with that.

When I’m not writing thrillers, you’ll find me traveling the world, playing video games, eating and reading, or watching HGTV. Yup, me likey the HGTV. Don't hate.
