The Corpse That Walked
He wore another man's face. He lived with another man's woman. And he was to die another man's death. Alan Douglas found himself in a macabre masquerade that could only have one ending--murder. Beyond the door was a man who didn't exist, but who was intent on killing him. Lew Hartley's in a lot of trouble. Alan Douglas's future father-in-law is in trouble, too. He needs cash--lots of it. When Hartley's lawyer makes Alan an unusual offer, it's too good to pass up. He agrees to sell his identity to Hartley for $100 grand. He can use the down-payment of $20 grand to bail his fiancÚ's father out of legal trouble. All he has to do is have plastic surgery to make him look like Hartley, then live Hartley's life in Miami for about six months. Not a bad deal for so much dough. What Alan doesn't know is that Hartley is a crooked guy running a crooked business and shady scams? and if Hartley can make himself disappear, he'll be home free. The problem is, he's no longer Lew Hartley--Alan is. And what's the best way to disappear permanently? Murder.
