Editor's Note
When Clay Arlington's father is murdered, his estranged half-brother Vincent becomes the most likely suspect. Eager to throw the police off his trail, Vincent invites Clay to visit him soon after the funeral, then secretly plants a bomb in the car Clay is to drive. Vincent has put his own identification in Clay's wallet, so police will think that he's the one who has died in the explosion. However, Clay survives the bombing, and plastic surgeons reconstruct his face and body from pictures of Vincent. Suffering from amnesia, Clay, readily accepts his new identity. As the police tighten their circle of evidence around Vincent, memories of Clay's own life come flashing back. SUTURE is an unusual thriller in which the two identical "brothers" are played by a black actor and a white actor, making Clay's quest for his own identity even more strange and ironic.
