As addictive, cinematic, and binge-worthy a narrative as The Wire and The KillingTwo 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.

"this flawless performance is captivating"

Equally good at the Christie-twisty stuff and at giving us characters to relish (the girls’ boozy mum and Cap’s super-smart daughter are standouts), this flawless performance is captivating. Its endorsement by Lee Child, who calls Vega “sensational”, points to the possibility of Luna’s heroine becoming a female Jack Reacher, ready to coerce and beat up baddies wherever she’s needed.
