Description

"Trust no one. The Hanging Girl is a nail-biter littered and lined with twists that will leave you gasping." --Teresa Toten, author of Beware That Girl and The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B

Skye Thorn has given tarot card readings for years, and now her psychic visions are helping the police find the town’s missing golden girl. It’s no challenge—her readings have always been faked, but this time she has some insider knowledge. The kidnapping was supposed to be easy—no one would get hurt and she’d get the money she needs to start a new life. But a seemingly harmless prank has turned dark, and Skye realizes the people she’s involved with are willing to kill to get what they want and she must discover their true identity before it’s too late.
