Présentation de l'éditeur

CHOP SUEY is the first book in the wildly popular, Darby Stansfield action/thriller series. Readers say it's Tarantino meets The Office. An Amazon Best Seller topping three top 100 lists.

"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

“Lightning-fast plotting, unforgettable characters and dialogue that rings with more truth than fortune cookies at a drunken mid-life crisis lunch. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!” — Author Dani Amore


Add one lovable dope looking for love.
Layer in a vicious serial killer.
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, 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 a collision course with the killer.

To make matters worse, his best friend and his girlfriend 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.


CHOP SUEY is a 90,000 word action thriller. That's 380 pages of holy moly.

STROGANOV is book two in the series and is available now.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Equal parts really good and really bad. 26 juin 2011
Par Tiffany - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Darby is conceited, self-centered, ungrateful, lazy, spiteful, racist, sexist, and a shopaholic with a one-track mind...but in the 100+ chapters, he kind of grows on you. Like a malignant tumor.

The story is interesting, engaging, and funny. There were a couple of times that I could not move from my spot for hours on end, fearing for what would happen next to our (extremely) unlikely hero. But there were more times that I could not wait for it to be over. I guess I'm giving it three stars because there were equal parts really good and really bad.

My friend said the summary sounded like a bad Steven Seagal movie. After reading the book, I tend to agree.

First but definitely not foremost, this novel could definitely use another proofread. There were numerous grammatical errors and skipped words that jolted me out of the story and made it a little difficult to read. There was also a lot of switching back and forth between past and present tense. I don't think my inner grammar Nazi will ever recover from those eye twitches.

Another thing that annoyed me was the amount of unnecessary detail. No, I don't need to know what each person wore or what each person ate every single time a new scene starts. This, I think, helped contribute to the length (and tediousness) of the book.

Tavish, Darby's so-called "best friend," had basically no personality. The book would give a general statement about him, providing maybe one example, then never mention it again. He was pretty much just Darby's conscience, and his constantly saying "No, this is stupid," got pretty old. Nevertheless, I'd have to agree with him.

The other, more interesting characters were probably one-hit wonders. Leslie Choi, Chu, Mr. Fu were all great. They had depth and intelligence, and were very relatable. Definitely don't belong in Darby's world.

The ending sucked, too. I won't give it away in case you still want to read it, but be prepared with low standards.

Okay, enough of the bad stuff; this novel was actually pretty good.

I loved the few scenes in Leslie's point of view. It really got into her method of coming up with hypotheses, discarding them, coming up with new ones, and pursuing them to the edge of sanity. The scenes from the point of view of The Voice were pretty bone-chilling, too. The parallelisms in their obsessions were pretty amusing and thought-provoking at the same time.

The plot twists were unexpected (always a good thing), and it really lived up to its name as a thriller.

To sum all that up: bad writing, good story. Won't read the sequel, won't read it again. But it was pretty good while it lasted.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a giggle, a chuckle, and out right laughter 18 mai 2011

This book is great. Immediately into it, I was hooked. I didn't want to put it down. The characters all come alive and I could envision them as I read. It was fantastic! It is a quick read that you will NOT WANT TO MISS! I look forward to another Darbytastic idea to read about... but a request- probably won't happen, somehow, will Chu be back? I like him!!!!
The author did a phenomenal job bringing the characters to life and had me laughing the whole trip!

This book is not as absolutely bad as the one-star readers insist. As a matter of fact, it was quite entertaining and, yes, there were places where I really had to laugh out loud. The Chinese policewoman is a great character, smart, capable, intelligent, someone I could visualize exactly. As for Tav, he started with a distinct personality and then wavered down to just a nay-sayer. He could have been, and should have been, more important in the plot. Chu was an interesting personality, I actually liked him better as the protagonist than Darby because he was the absolute pragmatic personality. The author's request for feedback is so nicely phrased that he earns more than a three. And his mistakes, and the overuse of vulgarity, often where it goes overboard in making a point, keeps him from getting five stars.
I started reading the excerpt from one of his other books that was included, but it seemed too repetitive to be of interest. I would like to see Darby grow a little. But not too much. A protagonist who isn't God's gift to the world is refreshing in a way.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Eye roll 5 juillet 2011
Par Passion Fruit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have to admit I only made it through Chapter 7. I just couldn't read any further, and I don't give up on books easily. The main character is despicable and the language is that of a typical loser Joe Schmoe: in those seven chapters the word "balls" had to have been used about 50 times, and he wasn't referring to toys or sporting equipment. It's as if a mindless bro movie was written as a book. And thriller? In those seven chapters there was also no hint of how this was going to become a thriller. It was the opposite of a thriller - the life and inner rage-filled ramblings of a misogynist cubicle-farm telecom sales rep. Please, don't waste your time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great summer read 2 juin 2011

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you're looking for a mystery/suspense book with a touch of humor, this book is for you. Chop Suey introduces a new hero to the genre-Darby Stanfield, who is looking for a quick route up the corporate ladder. Well developed characters, an always pleasing setting in San Fransisco, and a few surprise twists makes this a book that's hard to put down. Hopefully, this is just the first of a series of books by first-time author, Ty Hutchinson. I'm looking forward to speeding more time with Darby in his pursuit of the good life.
