The Hanging Girl
Amy's dad has been MIA since she was born and she lives with her mum in a run down trailer park. Her mother makes a living as a psychic and from watching her mum do what she does for years, Amy has learned the tricks of cold reading and has hustled her classmates with her 'gift' ever since. then the mayor's daughter, Clare goes missing and Amy decides to go public with a supposed vision she has had of the girl. In reality, she's received info from an unknown source, and feels its her duty to at least try to help with the case ... and okay, make some decent money off the whole thing. As the media story grows bigger than ever, Amy's connection to Clare becomes stronger. Until it looks like someone else might know the truth and is willing to take Amy's lie further than she ever feared it could.
Two girls, one fatal reading . . . because the truth always lies in the cards
