Two Girls Down

Summary: 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.

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I LOVED the premise of this book. Missing children, a bad ass bounty hunter- I really thought I would be singing it’s praises to every person.

However, it was just ok for me. I didn’t find myself getting sucked in like I had anticipated.

I felt that parts were way too slow for a thriller type book- I want to be flipping pages as fast as I can, not thinking “ho-hum…”

But it just did not all pan out- except for Alice Vega. Now she was a character that I really enjoyed.

Bottom line: Alice Vega was the saving grace for this book for me. It’s def in the just ok pile (for me).

  1. That’s always so disappointing when a book has such a good premise and the actual writing doesn’t live up to it. I read a few books like that in December, where I really wanted to like them because they had the potential to be so good, but they fell flat. I hope the next book you read it better!
