The Great Pretender

AutomanA violent hijacking leaves a man dead…and a truckload of the paper used to print money in the hands of a criminal organization. From behind his computer, Walter figures out who was behind the heist…but getting to that suspect through the layers of his enforcers and other henchmen will be a challenge. Automan proposes a solution: he will assume the guise of “Mr. Otto”, a rival crime boss, and begin stripping Brock’s supporters away from him until he’s exposed. It’s a brilliant plan that doesn’t take into account the fact that Automan’s only exposure to the criminal underworld comes from Walter’s collection of old gangster movies…
