"In Double Star you can smell and feel and practically taste the future." —Chicago Tribune

"Lloyd James, a veteran narrator, surpasses himself in his dramatization of this classic science fiction novel...Addressing white-black prejudice in the U.S. in the '50s through Lorenzo's aversion to Martians, Heinlein is at his best, and James makes us believe and nearly smell their appalling odor." —AudioFile

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. Lorenzo Smythe faces a lifetime masquerade if the politician never shows up. He must choose between causing disaster by quitting or saving galactic peace by sacrificing his own identity forever.
