'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.

'An intricately plotted, adrenaline-fueled conspiracy thriller. . .Luna's latest entertains while subverting gender stereotypes and confronting the politics of immigration.' * Kirkus Reviews * 'Luna's gripping sequel to 2018's Two Girls Down...a plot as dark and twisted as one of the tunnels used for smuggling between Mexico and the U.S...This dynamic duo has a long run.' * Publishers Weekly * 'Packed with thrills and heartache, The Janes kept me up way past my bedtime to see what rule-bending, jaw-breaking, no-fools-suffering P.I. Alice Vega would do next in her relentless pursuit of justice for the victims of a border sex trafficking ring. An absolutely rip-roaring read from a fantastic talent.' * Amy Gentry, bestselling author of Good as Gone * 'The Janes is a timely, gripping thriller with an ending that will leave you utterly satisfied but wanting more of Alice Vega.

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 Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito mysteries * 'This tautly written thriller balances suspense with strong characterisations and insightful reflections on motherhood.
