|Plot Summary of Double Star|
|"Lorenzo Smythe is an out of work actor who accepts a drink from a spaceman. He is soon offered a job impersonating a wellknown public official who's been kidnapped. The job pays well, but comes with two catches: if the ruse is discovered, it's certain death; and if John Bonforte, the politician, is not found, he will have to play the role for the rest of his life!"
Kim Marks, Resident Scholar
