The Hanging Girl

We rated this book:


Skye Thorn has big plans. After graduation, she and her best friend, Drew, plan to leave Minnesota and move to New York to make a fresh start. However, while Drew knows how she plans to get there, Skye has no money and no real prospects for getting it, what with the endless household costs that she has to cover. It doesn’t look good. When one of the girls in her high school goes missing, she uses her psychic talents to help the police. She knows with insider knowledge that she can help, with the unintended side effect that she may get more business. When the kidnapping becomes murder, her business dries up and she knows she has to find out what happened and where it all went wrong.

Cook leads readers in circles trying to determine “whodunit,” as the limited information given by Skye from her point of view skews the reality of the situation. Skye is alternately liked and not as her actions have unexpected reactions and she is forced to adjust her game plans. This is a darker story, similar to Accomplice by Eireann Corrigan, but with much more dire consequences. A sinister thriller.
