"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 "A must-read for fans of strong female protagonists.'--Booklist (starred review)    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.

“What’s the audiobook equivalent of a page-turner? That’s what narrator Tavia Gilbert delivers in this mystery…Gilbert demonstrates her skill in voicing men, women, and children of widely different backgrounds and is especially effective in expressing the pain of the tortured mothers of the missing girls. Listeners will find it hard to put down their earphones. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“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 review)
