Editorial Reviews

Review

A modern day Perry Mason, Turner is living proof that defending accused murderers doesn't always pay one's mortgage. -- Deadly Doses, Mary Welk

Again, Manchee has provided readers with an impressive contemporary mystery to test even the most experienced sleuthing mind. -- Brenda Weeakes, MyShelf.com

The action moves at a brisk pace with surprising (and ingenious) plot twists ... this may be Manchee’s best work... -- The Book Reader

Writer Manchee has put together another great setting of entertaining, convincing characters, predicaments and blunders. -- Molly's Reviews

From the Publisher

Cash Call, the fourth of the Stan Turner Mystery Series is about greed. As usual Stan's clients are looking to make a fast buck, but this time Stan gets caught up in the frenzy himself and pays a high price for his sins. Cash Call is legal horror story that can happen to any of us. It's a great book to read to gain understanding as to how fragil our world really is, so we can take the necessary steps to protect ourselves from all the dangers that lurk at our doorstep.

More About the Author

I'm originally from Ventura, California where I grew up during the 50s and 60s. My wife Janet and I were married while I was attending UCLA and she was attending nursing school. We immediately started having children and had three boys and a girl by the time I graduated from SMU Law School. With four young children we decided to stay in Dallas, where we had family and friends, rather than returning to California. I started law practice in the late 70's and today practice consumer law with my son, Jim. About eighteen years ago I took on a famous romance author as a client and, after working with her for a while, I started wondering if I could write a novel myself. Eventually I gave it a shot and found I really enjoyed the writing process. After that it only took a few generous reviews of my first novel and I was hooked. My current novel, Tarizon: Shroud of Doom is my 20th and my goal is to continue to write a novel a year for the rest of my life.

Entertaining read, Highly Recommended.
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.

Having read so many of William Manchees' later books, I have returned to his earlier works. It is amazing to compare the older ones with what he writes today! He has definitely grown as an author...literarily (is that a word?!). As I have gotten further into the Stan Turner series, the plots have gotten more complex. Total fan of this author and his works! Add this one to your "to read" list as well!
