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.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"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

"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

"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

"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
