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. "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 Jack Reacher series

If you liked her character, try Blood on the Tracks by Nickless, Barbara. The main character is Special Agent Sydney Rose Parnell, with the Denver Major Crimes unit. This is the first book in a series of three so far. Recommend that you read them in order to understand some of the "flashbacks" that Parnell experiences..... good read with believable characters.

A vey thrilling book from start to finish. Impossible to put down. I am a big fan of Lee Child's "Reacher" and Davide Baldacci's "John Puller". Luna's Vega is the female version of these two "heroes". Great read!

A great can't put it down mystery/thriller with rave reviews from Nancy Pearl, "The Wall Street Journal," and Booklist!

This story has some really great elements like a good strong female protagonist, a thrilling tale of kidnapping with many red herrings, and a nice partnership. It's not the most compelling story but it zips along very well and I did not think it would end as such.
