about this item
Amy confronts evil, one haircut at a time, with a magical hair rinse that alters your personality!
Beyond the city limits, at the end of a dirt road, a black limousine sits parked at a musty, old hair salon. Other chauffeur-driven vehicles regularly visit the dingy shop, causing many to wonder if it's selling services unrelated to hair care. But its popularity is no mystery to 16-year-old Amy, who discovers that this elite group doesn't come for a haircut, but to cleanse their sins with a miraculous hair rinse!
Concocted by the salon's hairdresser, the secret formula washes away personal guilt from the minds of his customers, who include embezzling CEOs, corrupt politicians, and crooked lawyers. Having their emotions purged of all remorse, clients can comfortably resume their immoral activities with a clear conscience.
Amy vows to expose the hairdresser's shameful operation, when she learns that he has developed other mixtures designed to benefit mankind. One eases the grief of families stricken by tragedy. Another ends the horrific nightmares suffered by war veterans. Still another tames the aggression in violent criminals. Demand for the "guilt remover" served only to provide necessary research funding.
The hairdresser is now ready to announce his "helpful hair rinse" to the world -- a move that his rich and powerful patrons are decidedly against: International scrutiny would most certainly expose their criminal activities. Amy bravely stands by the gracious inventor, but when he suddenly goes missing, Amy fears for her own safety. She knows too much!
