John Evans encounters his look alike, Malcolm Scott. When Scott is killed in an accident, Evans finds himself mistaken for Scott and decides to do some good in his new role. This novel is much more than an entertaining story of contrasting people going through all the reversals due to trading places and to playing the game of mistaken identity.
