A DRIFTER DETECTIVE NOVELLA. #7. (Paperback includes the bonus short story "Missing" from the Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles series) -- The road may have finally gotten to Jack Laramie. After a heated incident at a roadside diner, uncharacteristic of the wandering P.I., he decides he's in need of a break and accepts a steady gig as a handyman at the ranch of an elderly farmer. Thinking he's going to have an easy time of it tending to the chickens and pigs, Jack soon finds that it isn't so different from his usual job when family secrets and money-hungry scoundrels threaten to pull him into a web of deception that might just tear him down. This "Drifter" is the seventh installment in the series and the first written by the series creator.
