THE CHARACTERS The story talks about two guys that were vey alike: Colin Fenton and JohnBently. Colin Fenton was married to Julie Fenton, both had a company called C.J.F Software Solution, they were partners in business too. Colin was in charge of the marketing for computer software and Julie was a software developer. In another hand, John, the man who was very alike to Colin, he had a wife too, she was Linda Bently, a beautiful and extrovertive woman. Because they were very alike, Linda Bently made a plan that consisted of stealing the jewellery store in which she and her husband worked. Despite Colin’s bad luck, he died in the proc ess and the last person who saw him alive was Mark Ashwood who at the end of the story felt in love with Julie and they got married. THE THEME The two main themes are dishonesty and ambition. First of all we can see how dishonesty is present throughout the whole story. John and Linda wanted to have a better life so badly that they were willing to pull off a crime. They offered Colin to be a part of it. They were so eager to do the robbery that they continued with the plan even though Colin died in a car accident. This leads us to the next theme which is “Ambition”. Linda was such an ambitious and manipulative character. She was the master mind behind the plan, but her ambition was also their doom. She couldn´t help herself to let go the money that was left under her name as a heritage, so when she used her real name to claim it, she and her husband were caught by the police.
