5.0 out of 5 stars A debut that is really good, better than many, 11 Sep 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: No Human Involved (Hardcover)
In the Venice Beach section of 1970's Southern California, Munch Mancini
decides to clean up her life by giving up the drugs and booze, and to stop
hooking. However, before she can put her plan in motion, Munch soon learns
that police officer Mace St. John, a burned out cop, plans to bring her in
for questioning involving a recent homicide.

Somehow, the elusive Munch slips past the cop and even scores a job as a
mechanic at a local auto repair shop. Mace finds himself working on a
second homicide that he soon quickly realizes is linked to his other case.
He now knows that he must find Munch before what appears might be a serial
killer finds her and makes her his next victim.

Most readers will remain at best ambivalent if not hostile towards Munch
and Mace, but clearly will love the novel. NO HUMAN INVOLVED is a police
procedural tale wrapped inside a nostalgic down side look at the seventies
in Los Angeles. Barbara Seranella has written a great novel that, in spite
of the fact that Mace will not be well liked, will bevery popular as it reaches a vulnerable spot in reader's hearts.
