Well sustained story of double identity, with a unique court scene, and a situation fraught with implications which keep one on the toes. A man has been shell-shocked and the past has been virtually wiped out. He gets in the hands of some schemers, who wait until he has married and gone into Parliament to bring suit against him for posing as someone to whose identity he has no claim. Good escape reading -- for men particularly. Rental library. Play version running in London -- and opens this season in New York.
