This guy was creepy. I was happy when he got his in the end. This was a good listen that I would highly recommend. Also, this episode had all of the commercials in it--from 1974. Great stuff! 4 stars.

A man in financial difficulty survives a terrible train accident in which most people die. With some quick thinking he switches wallets with the financially secure salesman he has been sitting with during the trip. Having himself declared dead, he convinces his girlfriend to file a claim against his life insurance policy. Meanwhile, he tries to return to her but must be careful not to be spotted.


An enjoyable Henry Slesar scripted episode for those of us who are fans of Alfred Hitchcock Presents / Hour. I thought I had it figured out but there are enough twists and turns to surprise you. An excellent suspense / mystery listen.


Great story. Nice twist at the end. This is a wonderfully reworked episode that was popular on the Weird Circle and The Whisperer. Good show. (If you are an avid listener to OTR - I am).


I like twists, but this was too big of a twist to get my head around. To straighten it all out, I'd have to listen to the episode again (which I'm not willing to do). The concept of the ending was good, I'll give them that--but the execution was lacking, IMO.


I just love the happy-go-lucky slightly inebriated salesman character, too bad he dies off in the first five minutes. Robert Dryden at his best....when isn't he? You KNOW it's going to be good when you here a train whistle before E.G. says his first word. A HUGE twist at the end had me coming back a time or two to get it. Well done. A must-listen.

This was a good episode to listen to the greed of the main character. It made me wonder if he really was going to take his wife along for the ride or not as he wouldn't let her in on his plans. I was surprised that they didn't pick him up earlier as they knew where he was staying, but perhaps they wanted to get as many charges on him as possible.


I usually find myself going through all the possibilities in my head during an episode like this, trying to guess the inevitable twist. But this one still managed to surprise me. Very well done.


I have listened to 169 episodes, and this is the best twist so far!


Had to listen to it twice to understand how he was able to come up with his fake name/identity so quickly so he could pull off his scheme. Good storyline/twist ending.


Jerry Horton, one of the few left alive in a horrible train wreck, switches wallets with a dead fellow passenger who had, before the tragedy, bragged about the value of his life insurance. After assuming the dead man’s name, Jerry carefully instructs his wife, by phone, on how to collect the insurance, all $150,000 of it. Everything goes well until the insurance company demands the dead man’s body be exhumed.


It's an excellent program that easily keeps your attention. Nothing spooky. Very entertaining. You'll have to listen to the ending carefully to understand the unexpected twist. A recommended episode for your collection.
