A man who has been claimed to be dead four years ago is seen alive. Now the insurance company needs to verify the matter and either prove fraud, or learn what’s going on. Johnny heads out to interview George Brewster, the man who has been sighted and may be the aledged dead Earl Chadwick. The mousey man is reluctant to admit who he is at first, but his story reveals how his wife ran off with the insurance money. What will happen when a confrontation between Earl, his wife, and her new husband goes down? Is George actually Earl, or has he faked his identity?
Dental records could hold the answer, unless they’ve been misfiled, or has false evidence been planted? Are the police certain about their files on Earl? Is George just a fraud who heard about the old case of fraud and embezzlement, and is trying to take advantage of Earl’s widow and her new husband? Questions, questions, questions.
Murder could be brewing, and it’s up to Johnny to stop it, and get to the bottom of what’s going on with the mixed up identity. Which will it be, the case of a gold digger who ran off with defrauded money? Or a wacko who wants adventure in his boring, mousey life? There may not be a tidy conclusion, but Johnny blows the lid off the truth.
