The Janes by Louisa Luna

cover169063-mediumThe electric follow-up to Louisa Luna’s acclaimed thriller Two Girls Down, featuring private investigators Alice Vega and Max Caplan.

On the outskirts of San Diego, the bodies of two young women are discovered. They have no names, no IDs, and no family looking for them. Fearing the possibility of a human trafficking ring, the police and FBI reach out to Alice Vega, a private investigator known for finding the missing, for help in finding out who the Janes were–and finding the others who are missing.

Alice Vega is a powerful woman whose determination is matched only by her intellect, and, along with her partner Cap, she will stop at nothing to find the Janes before it is too late.

Alice Vega is the shit, for real. Smart, brave, and kind but also not someone to mess with, she systematically attacks the horrifying case of the Janes, two young girls murdered and dumped. There’s some dark stuff here – a sex trafficking ring specializing in young girls and men who enjoy torturing them – so this is not for the faint of heart. However, if you like your mysteries raw and bold, you’ll appreciate Alice and her partner Cap.

Reminiscent of Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole series, this gritty, captivating murder mystery will have you turning pages long into the night.

Lead character Alice Vega is sensational–I want to see lots more of her.”–Lee Child
