Description
"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.

        Starred review from October 16, 2017
        Best known as a YA author, Luna (Crooked) ventures into adult thriller territory with a real nail-biter. Single mother Jamie Brandt parks in a shopping center in Denville, Pa., leaving her two daughters—10-year-old Kylie and eight-year-old Bailey—in the car while she goes into a Kmart to buy a birthday present. When she returns to the car, the children have disappeared. The devastated Jamie’s take-charge aunt, Maggie Shambley, asks California bounty hunter Alice Vega to locate the girls. The complicated, blunt-talking Alice, who may be on the autism spectrum, has an uncanny knack for finding people. When the Denville police chief rejects Alice’s help, despite being besieged by budget cuts, low morale, and a rising oxycodone and meth epidemic, she teams up with Max Caplan, a disgraced former cop turned PI who knows the local area. Luna nicely charts how the aloof Alice comes to embrace a personal relationship. 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. Agent: Mark Falkin, Falkin Literary.

      • content: What's the audiobook equivalent of a page-turner? That's what narrator Tavia Gilbert delivers in this mystery, in which two girls disappear from a strip mall parking lot. The desperate search for them brings together Max Caplan, a former police detective, now a P.I, and prickly Alice Vega, a bounty hunter who has earned a reputation for finding missing children. They follow leads that go nowhere and then connect the disappearance to other unsolved missing children cases in small-town Pennsylvania. 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. E.Q. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
