Usually Mr. Gray's secretary saw interviewers. However, now that his identity was known, he had not the heart to be discourteous to a fellow journalist. Yes! He had once owned a newspaper--in Alaska. Incidentally, it was the farthest-north publication in the world.

Engrossing and well written tale of love and comeuppance set in early days of Dallas during the oil boom. Ambiguous and likeable characters and for a change, some strong female characters, literally.
