    6. This is the first Seranella novel I ve sampled, and I ve been most pleasantly surprised by its quality She s a smart, talented writer who approaches crime from a different perspective, that of someone who once fell to rock bottom but now is doing the best she can to raise her adopted little girl Munch is no PI, but she does know her way around the seamier side of LA, and her instincts are trustworthy.

    7. Munch aka Miranda Mancini is a person that has been down at the bottom but has managed to turn her life around to include a good job, a finance Rico a police officer and a child that loves and depends on her Just when she s ready to say I do happiness is snatched away and she must deal with what happened to him and setting things to rights Would be interesting to know about the back story.

    8. A good story but, in my view, not really a good mystery The facts of the author s life are very close to those of the main character and the book jacket mentions that the author is a member of the Orange County chapter of the Sisters in Crime although she is probably one of the few members who was ever actually a criminal

    9. I picked this up on a whim at the library, read a couple pages and it looked interesting Figured it would be ok, just a filler book I was wrong, this was a really good read Lots of twists and turns and you feel like you have it figured out, and then Boom it changes again I will definitely keep my eye out for books by this author.

    10. Munch Mancini is about to marry her undercover police officer boyfriend, when he is killed The police claim he was dirty but Munch does not believe that for a moment She gets involved trying to clear his name and is almost killed herself.

    11. Intriguing protagonist Munch former prostitute, druggie, motorcycle chick gone straight, become a mechanic and in love with an undercover cop who is killed early in the novel I d read others in this series.

    12. THE LAST MUNCH NOVEL EVER What a shame one of my favorite all time characters She loses her fiance and then the trouble insures Was he a cop or a dirty cop working with a drug lord Very little Mace St John in this novel So sorry to see Serenalla pass away.

    13. Audio version Must have been abridged as I think a few of the details got lost in the ending Narrator wasn t my favorite reader, but characters where interesting.
