"Lead character Alice Vega is sensational - I want to see lots more of her." (Lee Child)
The 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.
Louisa Luna is writing new classics of crime fiction, and her partnership of Vega and Cap is rightfully joining the pantheon of the most memorable in crime fiction.
"PI Alice Vega is nothing less than an utterly compelling protagonist in her second case (after Two Girls Down, 2018), which resumes her remarkable partnership with fellow PI Max Caplan.... A somewhat Shakespearean ending satisfies with triumphant women standing strong on a stage littered with battered villains." (Booklist, starred review)
"The Janes has everything - a plot ripped from the headlines and darkly twisted, explosive action, original characters, a dash of humor, and memorable settings. The story grabs the reader like a steel band of cold tension tightening with each new development. Investigators Alice Vega and Max Caplan deserve a long career with many more cases ahead." (Anne Hillerman, author of the New York Times best-selling Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito mysteries)
"The Janes is a timely, gripping thriller with an ending that will leave you utterly satisfied but wanting more of Alice Vega. Get to know her now, because she and her partner, Max Caplan, will be around for the long haul." (Alafair Burke, New York Times best-selling author of The Better Sister)

Vega and Kap are the best
I love how they work together and how Vega kicks as with the bolt cutters. I would love to hear more about Nell. Kaps daughter. And maybe bring Missy back into Kaplan’s life.

Hoping there will be another Vega story. Highly recommend. Very well written and narrated. Love the story. Read the first one and definitely not disappointed with her second book.!
The ride never stops until it does. A great mystery and I love Alice Vega and Cap.
