Meet our girl: seventeen, arrived here a year ago from a rough and dusty town in Chiapas, considered pretty by most standards because she is young, her face unmarked by scars or wrinkles, her body boasting the tender snap of fresh muscle. Our girl’s brain, on the other hand, is at war with itself and others: with memories of her mother’s worry and her father’s pain, subtle with her own simmering meditations on sex and violence, with fear of all the men that come through the door with their eyes so stark and full of want it’s like they’ve eaten her up before they’ve even selected her from underneath the butcher’s glass.

            Synopsis

            'Men pretty much have a triangle. Sex, drugs, money,' she said, drawing a triangle in the air with her finger. 'Every man who commits a criminal act does it in service to one or more of those three things...Most men, actually, do everything because of them.' 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 a human trafficking ring, the police and FBI ask Alice Vega to help find out who the Janes were-and find the other missing women. Alice Vega has a mind like a steel trap. Along with her partner Cap, she will stop at nothing to find the Janes before it is too late. Louisa Luna is writing new, smart, insightful, relevant classics of crime fiction. Vega and Cap rightfully join the pantheon of the most memorable partnerships in crime fiction.
