Jack Laramie, aka The Drifter Detective, is the grandson of famed western marshal, Cash Laramie. Jack drifts from one Texas town to another in search of P.I. work. He drives a DeSoto, behind which he tows his traveling home, a horse trailer. Like most P.I.’s of the era, Jack nurses wounds from his service in World War II. Despite carrying these demons, he’s a straight-shooter with a penchant for weeding out corruption and restoring justice. A classic, heroic figure desperately needed even now, in these most non-heroic times.
Volume One features three adventures by Garnett Elliott (The Drifter Detective, Hell Up in Houston, and The Girls of Bunker Pines), one by Wayne D. Dundee (Wide Spot in the Road), and a humorous novelette by Alec Cizak (The Don Juan of Eldorado). Additionally, famed critic and writer Kevin Tipple provides a brief, but very informative, forward.
