again a great Darby Stansfield book! Mystery paired with wit and fun, this time also some horrible stuff.
looking forward to #4! ( )

I have now followed Darby through three absurd phases of his life. These phases have been penned by a talented author who continues to provide me with hours of enjoyable reading.

Loco Moco (a Hawaiian staple fast food) id not as crazy as the previous books. In this installment, Darby and his life is a bit more normal - at least as much as can be if you are Darby. These books are tongue in cheek and the plot always has some twists. In this book, I did not suspect the "evil" character and was surprised. Ty did a good job with the inter relationships of the characters. He also did a fairly good job of writing in pidgin which is no small feat. Oral pidgin doesn't translate to the written page well no matter the author.

I look forward to the next installment. Now that Darby's nemesis has been promoted to a heavy hitter, I see a lot of office shenanigans coming.

Keep it coming TY and thanks for the help you have given Ethan Jones. ( )

This is the second Darby Stansfield book I've read. In this book Darby narrowly escapes death at the hands of a mexican gang by promising them a couple of thousands smartphones. Why? Because he is a telecommunications consultant to the underworld (without knowledge of this specialization to either his girlfriend or bosses). As a result of this narrow escape he decides to do the 'right' thing and go straight. As a fresh start he takes his girlfriend to Hawai for a long vacation. But old habits die hard. Meanwhile his girlfriend is threathened by an unknown burglar.

The books of Ty are improving with every new book. The plot is still as absurd as with the first one but the writing style and development of the plot is better. In this book the plot / end is fore seeable but still entertaining. There are some minor mistakes in the English (unwanted ones that is; not the pidgin English that the people on Hawai seem to speak). I'm waiting for the next book... ( )

Another Darby Stansfield novel, this time set in Hawaii. Darby has gotten himself out of a mess with a Mexican cartel and decides to spend some down time surfing and enjoying life with his new girlfriend. Trouble, as always, seems to follow Darby wherever he goes. Who's breaking into his house? Why? Was it just a simple burglary gone wrong or is someone after him? Though not the next great American novelist, Ty Hutchinson does write in a very entertaining fashion. I've enjoyed following Darby's exploits and will continue to do so in the future. ( )
