The Colossus

by Opie Read

Henry DeGolyer, a struggling newspaper writer who seems never to get the breaks he deserves, is sent by his editor on a special assignment to Costa Rica. Early in the trip, an encounter with Henry Witherspoon grows into a fast friendship which ends only at Witherspoon's death. On his deathbed Witherspoon tells a bizarre tale of having been stolen in infancy by an uncle, and requests DeGolyer to assume his identity and seek out his aging parents who live in Chicago. The Colossus is the story of DeGolyer's adjustment to his new life and his change of fortune.
