A slick, clever book that delivers the most chilling and claustrophobic setting: moving the narrator into the home of the character you fear the most. You won't be able to stop page turning until you finally find out what the hell is going on -- Caroline Corcoran, author of <i>Through the Wall </i>and <i>The Baby Group</i> Keeps you guessing about the characters until the last page * Good Housekeeping * Evocative and compelling -- Karen Hamilton, author of <i>The Perfect Girlfriend</i> and <i>The Last Wife</i> An intricate plot stuffed with surprises and underpinned with a huge helping of heart -- Holly Seddon, author of <i>Try Not To Breathe </i>and <i>The Hit List</i> A darkly compelling and original story exploring loneliness and obsession and the desire to belong -- Jenny Quintana, author of <i>The Missing Girl </i>and <i>The Hiding Place</i> I loved The Imposter. It's twisty and gripping, and I raced through to the end. It's also thoughtful and moving, with characters who lingered in my mind long after I'd turned the last page -- Laura Marshall, author of <i>Friend Request </i>and <i>Three Little Lies</i> A compelling story of obsession and loneliness -- Nell Pattison, author of <i>The Silent House </i>and <i>The Silent Suspect</i> With an intriguing and obsessive protagonist and a claustrophobic setting, it's a tense and compelling read that kept me turning the pages until the final twist -- Debbie Howells, author of <i>The Bones of You </i>and <i>The Vow</i> I read Anna's book in one sitting and loved it! It grips and drags you into ever darker, more terrifying territory right up to the last paragraph, and beyond that, too, leaving you grappling with your own sense of morality -- Tasha Kavanagh, author of <i>Things We Have in Common</i> Evocative, beautifully written and wise, this pacy novel really is one of the best pieces of fiction I have read this year -- Fiona Mitchell, author of <i>The Swap</i> Takes the perennial theme of a missing child and makes something unfamiliar from it -- The Literary Review
