What another fantastic masterpiece from the maestro about a down and out Bgrade movie actor Jerry Stevens who is offered a thousand bucks a day to impersonate one of the richest men in the world for a month of mystery, suspense, intrigue and murder that just keeps the pages turning, ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT from who else but the MASTER himself.....
