Description

Harold MacGrath was a bestselling American novelist, short story writer, and screenwriter. A Splendid Hazard (first published in 1910 and made into a feature film in 1920) is the story of the discovery of a document which tells of two million francs buried in Corsica and the subsequent expedition to attempt to recover this sum of money -- money buried there by Napoleon loyalists to help with the return of Napoleon from his banishment. In this lively and fast-paced romantic action adventure, the hero of the story is John (Jack) Fitzgerald, an American correspondent in Paris, drawn into the treasure hunt by the mysterious, beautiful, and very wealthy Laura Killigrew.

Author Biography

Harold MacGrath (1871 - 1932) was a bestselling American novelist, short story writer and screenwriter. Also known occasionally as Harold McGrath, he was born in Syracuse, New York. As a young man, he worked as a reporter and columnist for the Syracuse Herald newspaper until the late 1890s when he published his first novel, a romance titled Arms and the Woman. According to the New York Times, his next book, The Puppet Crown, was the No.7 bestselling book in the United States for all of 1901. MacGrath subsequently wrote novels for the mass market about love, adventure, mystery, spies and the like at an average rate of more than one a year. He would have three more of his books that were among the top ten bestselling books of the year. At the same time, he published a number of short stories for major American magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal and Red Book magazine. Several of MacGrath's novels were serialized in these magazines and contributing to them was something he would continue to do until his death in 1932.
