Item description for ACT Normal: A Stan Turner Mystery by William Manchee...

In this 8th episode of the Stan Turner Mystery series Dallas attorney Stan Turner struggles to keep his practice going in the wake of the tragic loss of his son and his rapidly disintegrating marriage. Stan, who has been recruited by the CIA for its ultra top secret Tarizon Repopulation project, gets his first assignment to defend a woman accused of murdering her children and alien husband. The alien husband, however, is not from Mexico but Tarizon, a planet in another solar system. Stan must not only prove his client innocent but also make sure nobody finds out that the government is allowing aliens to live and propagate on Earth. While Stan is busy with his CIA project, Paula is asked to defend the accused in the arson-murder of a prominent scientist and his family. While a bitter feud between neighbors over a barking dog and a chain link fence appears to be the motive for the crime, Paula discovers several others who have benefited from Chester Brown's death. In the midst of the two murder cases Stan is lured into a dangerous relationship with an alien woman assigned to him as a legal assistant. He soon learns that the women of Tarizon are even more mysterious and dangerous than those on Earth.

Reviews - What do customers think about ACT Normal: A Stan Turner Mystery?

A relaxing read with twists and turns  Aug 31, 2007
Reviewed by Stephanie Rollins for Reader Views (8/07)

"Act Normal," by William Manchee, starts out with: "....there was nothing normal in my life anymore, not since my son Peter had been abducted by aliens from a planet called Tarizon." Normally, I would have put the book down then; however, the reviews were good, so I read on. I am glad that I did so.

Stan is a lawyer who does not specialize. He has a partner, Paula. Paula's husband, Bart, begins to work with Paula after his job with the district attorney ends. Stan and Paula end up trying an embezzlement case and two murder cases.

Stan has to work with the CIA in order to keep his son Peter alive on Tarizon. The Tarizonian leaders give Stan an alien partner. She is tall, blonde, and thin. I picture Heidi Klum. There is definitely sexual tension between the two of them. Is sex inevitable? Is her anatomy the same as a human? You have to read the book to discover that for yourself.

Though the Tarizonians are involved in this plot, this is not a science-fiction novel. This is a courtroom drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is much more relaxing to read than a John Grisham novel, but it is just as exciting.

Anyone who loves a great battle between lawyers will love this story. Manchee has other novels that I am excited to start reading, such as "Yes, We're Open." "Act Normal" is a book of twists and turns that is a relaxing read. I recommend it.
