Parker as Penny called his attention to the brokerage. "Maxwell hasn't overlooked anything. The hotel has a special leased wire which I've been told gives him a direct connection with his other places."

Walking over to the desk, Mr. Parker mentioned his name and asked the clerk if he might see Harvey Maxwell.

"Mr. Maxwell is not here," replied the man with an insolent air.

"When will he be at the hotel?"

"Mr. Maxwell has left the city on business. He does not expect to return until the end of next month."

Mr. Parker could not hide his annoyance.

"Let me have his address then," he said in a resigned voice. "I'll write him."

The clerk shook his head. "I have been instructed not to give you Mr. Maxwell's address. If you wish to deal with him you will have to see his lawyer, Gorman S. Railey."

Sometime cub reporter Penny Parker, only daughter of the editor and publisher of the Riverview Star, goes off on a skiing trip alone, her father detained by a disastrous libel suit against the paper. There she encounters the man suing her father, who's clearly involved in something illicit. As Penny tries to find out what, she's hampered by a conceited rival reporter determined to get the scoop.

This sort of young adult novel is a period piece, like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. I can't imagine it would hold much interest for the youth of today, but if you have a nostalgic enjoyment of the juvenile novels of yore, this is as well written as any. It's very clearly a girls' book -- even Penny's rival is a girl, and no male is involved to save the day. There's not even a love interest. Refreshing.
