Overview

The thing i like to read the most are mysteries/thrillers and this is one of THE BEST I HAVE EVER READ. --Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life I'm always looking for a good thriller, and this just was perfect. --Nancy Pearl, NPR's Morning Edition Opening this book is like arming a bomb--the suspense is relentless and the payoff is spectacular. Lead character Alice Vega is sensational--I want to see lots more of her. --Lee Child Sensational. --Wall Street Journal 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 family hires Alice Vega, an enigmatic bounty hunter from California, to do what the authorities cannot. Immediately shut out by a local police department already stretched thin by budget cuts and the growing OxyContin and meth epidemics, Vega enlists the help of a disgraced former cop, Max Caplan, to cut through the local politics. Vega and Cap will go to extraordinary lengths to untangle a complex web of lies, false leads, and dangerous relationships to locate the girls before time runs out. Two Girls Down is intense, suspenseful, and boldly atmospheric from the first line to its riveting conclusion.

Reviews

Sensational...One of the book's great pleasures is seeing Caplan and Vega's initially testy entanglement develop into a true partnership. But there are many other aspects in Ms. Luna's story to savor as well: a host of sharply sketched characters, from spaced-out dopers to distraught parents and grandparents; action sequences startling in their sudden violence; and quick psychological revelations that pierce the heart. --Wall Street Journal Opening this book is like arming a bomb--the suspense is relentless and the payoff is spectacular. Lead character Alice Vega is sensational--I want to see lots more of her. --Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Midnight Line A real nail-biter...The brisk plot combines psychological suspense with solid action, while providing a realistic look at a family under siege, as it builds to a shocking finale. --Publishers Weekly (starred) An outstanding neo-noir, introducing enigmatic bounty hunter Alive Vega, a perfect female incarnation of Jack Reacher...Vega springs to life in the hands of this immensely talented writer...This is a must-read for fans of strong female protagonists --Booklist (starred) Ripe for optioning...a winter title to watch. --Hollywood Reporter From its haunting opening to the pulse-pounding final sequences, Two Girls Down delivers a gripping read. Alice Vega and Max Caplan are characters I'd follow anywhere, and Louisa Luna is a writer to watch. Highly recommended. --Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Wish Me Dead 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. --Chelsea Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Heartsick Louisa Luna is an incredibly talented writer with a bewitching gift for storytelling, and Two Girls Down fairly crackles with energy and suspense from the first page to the last. I can't ever recall a time before now that I lost sleep as a result of reading a crime thriller. This one, I just could not put down. --Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Devil All the Time & The Heavenly Table To the pantheon of unforgettable noir detectives, add Louisa Luna's bounty hunter Alice Vega and her partner, PI Max Caplan, one of the best and most original duos to grace crime fiction in many years. Two Girls Down is a breathlessly gripping journey into the dark heart of America: I couldn't put it down. --Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss and Hard Light Louisa Luna has written a knockout, read-it-in-one-sitting novel with Two Girls Down. Gripping, emotional, and tautly written, with a wonderful cast of memorable characters. --Jeff Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Adrenaline
