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.

Gripping and uniquely well-written. Luna's the next Denis Lehane - Tayna French - Gillian Flynn

Great story and characters. On a par with Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Louise Penny. Hope the KCLS gets some of her previous works. This one lasted me 2 days. Those 111+ on waiting list have a real treat coming.

One of the best books that I've read in many years. Well written...suspenseful...humorous...Hope to see more from this author- a sequel to this book would be great!

One of the best of this type of detective novels. Agree with all the positives previously written. Went to order more by this author but no books in Marin library. Why?

Really enjoyed this book. Hard to put down. Hopefully, there will be a sequel for Vega and Caplan!

This was an exceptionally well written thriller. Good character development and you could feel the relationship between Alex and Cap grow and develop. Agree with others would love to revisit these two in future books. I know there are many books that have twists and turns but this went beyond most. This truly has an ending that you never saw coming. This was such a good read that you will finish it in a short time, because you will not want to put it down.

Thoroughly enjoyed this thriller from author Louisa Luna. I found the characters well developed and believable, possessing human flaws rather than being super heroes. I also appreciated the writing style, not focusing on gore and shock value. I am hoping this authors future novels including Vega and Caplan will be just as good.

A big thank you to Random House and Edelweiss for the opportunity to download the ARC for this book. It was quite a ride and Alice Vega is more than worth the price of admission. She is the antithesis of Stephanie Plum. Vega goes to a Home Depot to pick up 5 ft of straight link chain, a pipe wrench and Bungee Cord to take a skip from a construction site with seven other men to overcome. (She also utilizes a cup of hot tea in a strategic location.) Stephanie Plum leaves her gun in the cookie jar and forgets to charge her taser.

Cap, the ex-cop, and Vega make a dynamic character duo and there is so much more to this book than finding two missing girls. Luna adds many other layers into the story that surprise and edify. Recommended!
