The Imposter

She watches the street, hoping to see a familiar figure appear under the orange glow of the street lamps. Instead it's just a fox that scuttles by. Chloe watches TV for a while, skipping channels when she can't focus on any one ...

The Imposter

They say you can't choose your family . . . But what if they're wrong? Chloe lives a quiet life. Working as a newspaper archivist in the day and taking care of her nan in the evening, she's happy simply to read about the lives of others as she files the news clippings from the safety of her desk. But there's one story that she can't stop thinking about. The case of Angie Kyle – a girl, Chloe's age, who went missing as a child. A girl whose parents never gave up hope. When Chloe's nan is moved into care, leaving Chloe on the brink of homelessness, she takes a desperate step: answering an ad to be a lodger in the missing girl's family home. It could be the perfect opportunity to get closer to the story she's read so much about. But it's not long until she realizes this couple isn't all they seem. In a house where everyone has something to hide, is it possible to get too close? Anna Wharton’s debut, The Imposter, is a thought-provoking story of obsession, loneliness and the lies we tell ourselves in order to live with ourselves. 'Evocative and compelling' – Karen Hamilton, author of The Perfect Girlfriend and The Last Wife
