UNWILLING ACCOMPLICE (Amateur Sleuth - non-cozy) – G+ Barbara Saranella – 7th book
Munch Mancini receives a call from her daughter's aunt, who wants the girl to meet her cousins. When one of the cousins goes missing soon after the meeting, Munch is drawn into finding the girl and discovers a ring of exploited and endangered children and teens.
I didn’t feel this was the strongest book of the series and found the story a bit less suspenseful than others in the past. It’s interesting that as Munch becomes more “mainstream,” which is great for the growth of the character, she is less edgy and interesting. It’s still a very good series with a wonderful, strong, female character, but I’m going to be interested to see where it goes from here.
