Publisher's 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.  

Jamie Brandt was not a bad mother. Later she would tell that to anyone who would listen: police, reporters, lawyers, her parents, her boyfriend, her dealer, the new bartender with the knuckle tattoos at Schultz’s, the investigator from California and her partner and her own reflection in the bathroom mirror, right before cracking her forehead on the sink’s edge and passing out from the cocktail of pain, grief and fear.  

When two sisters disappear from a parking lot while their mother is in Kmart, the devastated family hires bounty hunter Alice Vega to help find the girls. Immediately shut out by a local police department already stretched too thin by budget cuts and the growing 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, 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.

Disappointed

I was quite excited to listen to this book after reading positive reviews. I was, however, disappointed. I felt that the story was ok if a little hackneyed. I wondered if it had been written with a view to filming.
The narration did not impress me. It felt a little overacted. At one stage I thought of the Scooby Doo cartoon and, sadly, could not get that thought out of my head!
I must stress and admit that my critique was s at odds with most other reviews; so don’t let me put you off.
Overall: it wasn’t for me.

A great listen

This is a really good detective story read by one of America’s top audio performers. The chemistry between the main characters is well portrayed and the story moves along nicely to its tense conclusion. Recommended.
