What do the cards say? Can you pretend to be someone you already are?

A letter promising an inheritance lures destitute Hal away from her tarot booth on the pier to a rundown mansion where she hopes to cadge a bit of the fortune. There she finds a sinister housekeeper, estranged siblings, mistaken identities and magpies. Equal parts thriller and coming of age story, with a twist of whodunit, it may not turn out as you expect. It’s a great read and might have a good movie in it. If only Hitchcock were still with us to direct it.
