The Voice at Johnnywater;
Little, Brown & Company: 1923.


        Patricia Connolly did not like the idea of her handsome lover, Gary Marshall, being a movie star, which she considered quite beneath the dignity of a “regular, red-blooded” man; so she bought a ranch, drew up a power of attorney and calmly handed the papers over to Gary with the demand that he go out and manage it. Gary – on the eve of securing a first-class movie contract, flatly refuses and stalked angrily off with the papers, stung by Patricia’s caustic comments.

        He went to Johnnywater Ranch – not to manage it but to sell it – and found himself involved in a series of weird and unexpected events which called forth his strength, courage, and amazingly enough, acting ability.
