Imposter Syndrome




Lynch, a mysterious grifter, is enlisted by the wealthy Pierce family to impersonate their missing son so they can find out what really happened to Heydon. A gripping, pacey thriller from acclaimed author Joseph Knox.

Lynch arrives in London, looking over his shoulder for a past he cannot escape. His phone is dead, he has no money, no contacts. He is alone. Until he runs into a wealthy young woman, Bobbie Pierce, who mistakes him for her brother, Heydon, who disappeared 5 years ago without a trace. The resemblance is striking. Or so she says.

At her suggestion, Lynch goes to the luxurious Pierce family home, posing as Heydon to try and con some money out of them. But far from succeeding, his subterfuge is instantly discovered, forcing him into a devil’s bargain – their silence for his cooperation in finding out what really happened to Heydon.

But Lynch’s investigation goes too deep and soon reveals the dark world in which Heydon Pierce was immersed - and the dangerous and powerful people who hunt there. It seems that everyone has good reasons to keep Heydon buried in the past. In such a conspiracy of mirrors, just one thing is certain: the only person he can trust is himself.

Like its award-winning predecessor, True Crime Story, Imposter Syndrome takes the reader on a dizzying journey into a landscape where the difference between fact and fiction is almost impossible to distinguish. It thrillingly confirms Joseph Knox as one of the most innovative and daring of the UK’s contemporary crime writers.
