At last, a book with girl in the title that is about actual girls. Kylie and Bailey, ages 8 and 10, disappear from a strip mall. Their mother is frantic and the police are making no progress. The family hires Alice Vega, an out-of-state bounty hunter to find the girls. She teams up with Max Caplan, a former cop turned private investigator. Vega and Cap combine their skills to find the missing girls before it is too late. A suspenseful and all-too-real scenario that will challenge most readers to finish the story before doing anything else.— Sharon K. Nagel
"This is such a terrific read. High stakes, relationship-driven, perfectly paced. Two Girls Down has something else worth noting: three dimensional female characters. Alice Vega could give Jack Reacher a run for his money. Maybe Louisa Luna should write all the thrillers."
--New York Times bestselling author Chelsea Cain As addictive, cinematic, and binge-worthy a narrative as The Wire and The Killing, Two Girls Down introduces Louisa Luna as a thriller writer of immense talent and verve.
When two young sisters disappear from a strip mall parking lot in a small Pennsylvania town, their devastated mother hires an enigmatic bounty hunter, Alice Vega, to help find the girls. Immediately shut out by a local police department already stretched thin by budget cuts and the growing OxyContin and meth epidemic, Vega enlists the help of a disgraced former cop, Max Caplan. Cap is a man trying to put the scandal of his past behind him and move on, but Vega needs his help to find the girls, and she will not be denied.
With little to go on, Vega and Cap will go to extraordinary lengths to untangle a dangerous web of lies, false leads, and complex relationships to find the girls before time runs out, and they are gone forever.
