This is Anne Wharton’s debut novel and is a chilling novel about obsession and lies.
Chloe, the main character, is a news archivist and holds a deep fascination with other people’s lives. She notices a cutting about a young girl who disappeared 25 years ago and sees the parents are obsessed with the belief that their daughter will return.
When Chloe is about to become homeless due to her only living relative going into a care home, she sees that the missing girl’s parents are advertising for a lodger so she see this as an opportunity.
Cleverly plotted with characters I didn’t warm to and a good twist at the end.
Thank you to NetGalley, Pan MacMillan, and Anne Wharton for the ARC of ‘The Imposter’ in return for my honest review.
