    When the most important statesman of the 21st century disappears on Mars, the only hope of preventing interplanetary war lies in a ham actor's ability to impersonate the missing leader well enough to fool two worlds!

    William says: "More worthy of a listen than a read"
    "Double Star"
    Overall

    A Glorious interplanetary romp. Larry (Lorenzo Smythe AKA 'The Great Lorenzo') Smith, a down-on-his-luck third-rate actor with an over-active ego gets conned into the rough-and-tumble world of interplanetary politics.

    Yesterday he couldn't name the Prime Minister of the United Planets. Today he's on his way to Mars to stand in for the leader of the Loyal Opposition in a ceremony that will affect the future of interplanetary relations for decades. Then it gets complicated.

    Heinlein's first Hugo, and possibly his best work, though eclipsed by later and more contriversial books.
