An Interview with Joseph Knox

Launching his brand new title Imposter Syndrome, Bestseller Joseph Knox brings his scandalously entertaining true crime story to the Newark Town Hall Ballroom stage in an interview with Dr Tim Rideout.

Lynch, a burned out con-artist, arrives, broke, in London, trying not to dwell on the mistakes that got him there. When he bumps into Bobbie, a rehab-bound heiress – and when she briefly mistakes him for her missing brother – Lynch senses the opportunity, as well as the danger…

Hailed a ‘‘truly immersive: complex, disturbing, unexpectedly funny and very smart’ read by Laura Wilson, from The Guardian.

One of the most unafraid contemporary crime writers.’Helen Fields
You always get beautiful prose and a crackling plot from Mr Knox.’Imran Mahmood
