Having just returned from an important conference with some of the leading financiers of the city, his mind was burdened with affairs of weight, and then, too, the mayor was expecting him--luncheon probably--hence he was in no mood to be interviewed. 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.
