Anna Wharton's debut, The Imposter, is a spine-chilling suspense about obsession, loneliness and the lies we tell ourselves in order to live with ourselves . . .
The lives of others have always fascinated newspaper archivist Chloe. And when she comes across a cutting of a little girl who went missing twenty-five years ago, she is moved by the unwavering devotion of the child’s parents and their belief that their daughter will one day return.
Meanwhile, news that her beloved Nan, the only family she has left, must move into a nursing home, leaves Chloe distraught and soon to be homeless. So when the missing girl’s parents advertise for a lodger, Chloe sees this as a sign – a new home and the perfect opportunity to investigate the case. But it’s not long until she realises the couple aren’t all they seem from the outside . . .
With everyone in the house hiding something, the question is – whose secrets are the most dangerous?
