The electric follow-up to Louisa Luna's acclaimed thriller Two Girls Down, featuring private investigators Alice Vega and Max Caplan.
Set against the sprawling canvas of illegal immigration, trafficking and border tensions, The Janes pulses with urgency and intensity. On the outskirts of San Diego near the Mexican border, the bodies of two young Latinas are discovered. They have no names, no IDs and no family looking for them. Fearing the likelihood of a sex-trafficking ring, the police and FBI enlist Alice Vega to help identify the Janes – and to locate the others before it’s too late.
The stakes have never been higher for Vega and her partner, Max Caplan, as they navigate an increasingly murky world populated with drug lords, crooked officials, and average citizens content to look the other way. Vega and Cap become both the hunters and the hunted as they race to find the missing Janes and prevent anyone else from being brutally murdered – including themselves.
With Louisa Luna’s The Janes, Vega and Cap rightfully join the pantheon of the most memorable partnerships in crime fiction in a thriller that could not be more relevant or powerful.
