Description:

He arrived on an iron horse. And when the train pulled away, the town had a boxcar full of trouble. He went by the name of Speedy. Some called him a tramp—and others called him worse. Speedy was a young con man who knew the fastest way to a rich man’s wallet and a pretty girl’s heart.

To Speedy, Durfee didn’t look any different from a hundred other towns he’d seen

before. There were fat bankers waiting for his smooth talk, and lovely young ladies ready to swoon over his smile and his guitar playing. But this time the charming trickster was about to meet his match—in a girl out to steal his heart!—Goodreads. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Faust, Frederick Schiller

Author Image

Frederick Schiller Faust aka Frank Austin, George Owen Baxter, Walter C Butler, George Challis, Evan Evans, Frederick Faust, John Frederick, Frederick Frost, David Manning, Peter Henry Morland, Max Brand...

Max Brand, one of America's most popular and prolific novelists and author of such enduring works as Destry Rides Again and the Doctor Kildare stories, died on the Italian front in 1944.

“No pulp writer was more prolific than Frederick Faust, who wrote nearly 15 million words under the pen name of Max Brand and seventeen others. He sold all his stories and sometimes wrote complete issues of Western Story Magazine. But Faust's most famous character was not a Western hero but a doctor—Dr. Kildare—who inspired a film of the same name plus fifteen sequels and a television series starring Richard Chamberlain.” (The Incredible Pulps: A Gallery of Fiction Magazine Art, c. 2006, p. 11).
