Writer Manchee has crafted another great setting of enjoyable, credible characters, situations and blunders. The narrative Manchee sets forth in Cash Call brings us another great read with full time lattorney part time sleuth Stan Turner. Turner has much of Perry Mason in his methodology but muddles along without Mason's perfect record. Cash Call is a well written work complete with many of the characters we have come to enjoy from the prior works in this ongoing series. As the Turner children grow up we see Stan, Rebekah and their family behaving much as our own. And that is in part what makes this series so engaging.
The reader is hooked straight away in the opening of this gripping, creative story theme. Transitions are handled well, with plot and sub plot all lined in a fiduciary manner. Manchee's characters are natural. Dialogue is not contrived as the characters work to resolve problems. Climax and conclusion are handled with usual Manchee skill. I can easily believe that Stan would have handled the circumstances he faced in Cash Call quite as is set down by writer Manchee.
Poor Stan and his always present cash flow problems does again manage to prove his clients are not guilty of the murder of the scoundrel who was the cause of so many of their problems. The ongoing joke in the Stan Turner books surrounding the `payment in kind' tribulations are just plain fun.
Writer Manchee continues to grow as an author. Cash Call is a well crafted work in the manner of the best of Ellery Queen, Gardner and Gresham. Dialogue is snappy. The work moves smoothly from Stan and his personal circumstance to his interaction with clients, the romantically intentioned gal who refuses to accept the word no and even a mobster or two.
