This book is great as the others by her. I have been reading them one by one and haven't been disappointed yet
Quick read - loved Kate and the descriptions of the area and the people. I will definitely read more from this author.
Most female fictional detectives are bigger than life characters unlike anyone you've met in real life. They are the fictional equivalents of the comic book characters, Wonder Woman and Supergirl.

In Unwilling Accomplice, you meet an unusual Mom . . . but one who resonates with an unexpected amount of reality. She has a job. She has to be sure her daughter gets to and from school and does her homework. Meals have to be made ready. Even the details of her work resonate as she describes the typical mechanical problems that cars had in the 1980s.

But at the same time, Munch Mancini, Ms. Seranella's detective, is also an idealized version of what a modern woman can be. She has beaten drugs, alcohol and harmful relationships with men. Her past has scarred her, but left her stronger for it. She can still be vulnerable and can give love a chance.

Unlike most books about crime, you should primarily read this one for the character development. It's not that the crime story is a bad one; it's that the crime story is secondary to the interesting and inspirational characters.

The crime story is also unusual though in that it involves teenagers, those who actually do more crime than any other age group. You see it from the perspectives of being both a Mom and an Aunt.

The book opens with a troubling scene in which Munch's daughter Asia learns that there's a reason to stick close to your chaperones. Next, Asia's Aunt Lisa appears from out of nowhere (she's been in the Federal Witness Protection Program) along with her daughters, punky looking Charlotte and ideal-kid-like Jill. Lisa's obviously in some sort of trouble, and Munch is soon brought into solve the problems.

Obviously, I think that the book has some weaknesses or I would have rated it higher. The plot itself could have used a lot of work that it didn't receive. In addition, Munch and Lisa's daughters are made to be a little too good to be true which steals power from the characters and the story. Munch's world is filled with ethically black and white people, either very evil or very good. The subtle shadings of reality are missing.

But the book is most enjoyable, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
#7 Munch Mancini mystery set in 1980's Los Angeles, and featuring our favorite female mechanic and ex-junkie. Things are going along well for Munch and her adopted daughter Asia when a blast from the past--Asia's aunt Lisa and her two girls--call and ask to get together. Munch, clean and sober for many years now, is always reluctant to let her past leak into her new, stable life, but Lisa is Asia's blood kin and Asia wants to meet her cousins, so she agrees.

When the elder daughter Charlotte goes missing a couple of days later, a distraught Lisa calls Munch as the police don't seem very interested in a Goth-looking fifteen-year-old whom they think ran away. Charlotte was friends with a boy who was killed a few days previously as part of a robbery, and Munch wonders if this had something to do with her disappearance--Lisa is convinced she was abducted, and some threatening phone calls later bear this out. Meanwhile, Munch learns some interesting information about Rico, her former boyfriend who had broken their relationship off when his ex-girlfriend turned up pregnant, as he planned to 'do the right thing' and marry her.

I always enjoy a visit with Munch and Asia and Munch's unique perspective on life and this book was no exception. Only one left in the series. :(
Auto mechanic and sometime limo driver, Munch Mancini is back. She is still clean and sober after years of hard living. She gets a phone call from her adopted daughter's aunt. Lisa Slokum has taken off from the witness relocation program with her daughters, Charlotte and Jill. Lisa calls Munch desperate for help; Charlotte has gone missing. No one knows if she has run away or if something more evil has happened to her. Munch decides to help her daughter's dysfunctional family. As she starts to investigate Charlotte's life, she comes upon a stash of stolen goods in her room. Her search for Charlotte leads Munch into trouble, but due to her early life on the street, it is not anything she can't handle.
Munch is not quite as edgy as she was in earlier novels. Being a mother to Asia has softened her considerably not to speak of being "in love". Even a not-so-edgy Munch makes for a nice change from the run-of-the-mill type heroines in most detective novels. She is a very likable and admirable character. Barabara Seranella's books are so character driven that the strength or weaknesses of any given plot seems secondary. I enjoyed reading UNWILLING ACCOMPLICE and look forward to the next in the series.
