Good suspense story with fine acting.

Lvneal

An out of work football player is hired to serve as a body double for a reclusive billionaire.

Betty Joe Young

A writer works harder at building his image than he does on his writing. He will use anything, and anyone to meet his objectives. His long-time friend/agent/admirer stands by him despite the increasing vanity and hubris displayed be the author.

Rosco

An out-of-work third string football player is tired of relying on the charity of a friend and responds to an intriguing ad for which he is ideally suited. The qualifications required identify no skills or abilities, but only a particular appearance. Attending the interview the beautiful woman says he is perfect for the job and then introduces her to his new boss and his associate, a massive hulk of a man with a prosthetic hook in place of one hand.

Rhianne

A good story. When I heard the associate with the hook I was picturing Odd Job from James Bond (even though the description in the book was quite different as well as the actor in the movie). Ralph Bell did play the evil character quite well, I guess his voice was made for it.
