This was an exceptionally well written thriller. Good character development and you could feel the relationship between Alex and Cap grow and develop. Agree with others would love to revisit these two in future books. I know there are many books that have twists and turns but this went beyond most. This truly has an ending that you never saw coming. This was such a good read that you will finish it in a short time, because you will not want to put it down.

Thoroughly enjoyed this thriller from author Louisa Luna. I found the characters well developed and believable, possessing human flaws rather than being super heroes. I also appreciated the writing style, not focusing on gore and shock value. I am hoping this authors future novels including Vega and Caplan will be just as good.

A big thank you to Random House and Edelweiss for the opportunity to download the ARC for this book. It was quite a ride and Alice Vega is more than worth the price of admission. She is the antithesis of Stephanie Plum. Vega goes to a Home Depot to pick up 5 ft of straight link chain, a pipe wrench and Bungee Cord to take a skip from a construction site with seven other men to overcome. (She also utilizes a cup of hot tea in a strategic location.) Stephanie Plum leaves her gun in the cookie jar and forgets to charge her taser.

Cap, the ex-cop, and Vega make a dynamic character duo and there is so much more to this book than finding two missing girls. Luna adds many other layers into the story that surprise and edify. Recommended!
