Happy Thursday! Today I have a review of Two Girls Down by Louisa Luna, which is celebrating its paperback release via Vintage Anchor/Doubleday!
In small town Pennsylvania, two young sisters disappear from a mall parking lot. Their mother is desperate to find them and hires a bounty hunter named Alice Vega.
The police refuse to work with Vega. With budget cuts and crime problems spreading them too thin, they aren’t available to consult with her. Needing some kind of assistance, she seeks out Max “Cap” Caplan, a former cop with a scandalized past.
With no leads and little information available, where will Vega and Cap begin, and will they ever find the girls?
Two Girls Down is a swift page-turner! It is engrossing, and Cap and Vega feel real and relatable. They have the perfect partner-type chemistry I love to experience between two sleuths. There’s also a mystery within the mystery here because Vega herself seems to be hiding an elusive past.
With a fast-paced, anxiety-inducing plot, I fell for this thriller with full investment. Please, please, please give us more books with Cap and Vega, Louisa Luna! I think you have a dynamic duo on your hands!
Thanks to the publisher for the complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
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.
