    The Drifter Detective series has rapidly become a favorite Jack Laramie roams 1950s Texas in his DeSoto and the horse trailer he lives in working as a PI The grandson of US Marshal Cash Laramie he gets into almost as much trouble as granddadHere he gets involved with a young Korean vet checking out an obvious scam involving vets and bomb sheltersWe get a little look into Jack's past as we get flashbacks of his WWII daysElliott has two coming and Wayne Dundee has a forthcoming tale as well Look forward to all three And hopefully

    Not awfulA weaker story in the Jack Laramie series which is a spin off of the Cash Laramie Gideon Miles westerns Like many of us he is just not the man his grandfather was Jack's flashbacks were well related and poiniant The story however had potential but was ruined buy an ending that had almost no resolution

    It began with The Drifter Detective and continued on with Hell Up In Houston and now traveling private investigator Jack Laramie is back in The Girls of Bunker Pines It is 1956 in Kilgore Texas as a hail storm pulls Jack Laramie from an intense dream of his B 17 being shot down over Germany during the war While he is back home and has pretty much adjusted to civilian life by wandering across Texas in his Desoto hitched to a horse trailer while working as a private investigator the nightmares of war persist from time to time His normal solution of downing a couple of shots won’t work this night as he is on a surveillance job outside a traveling church revival led by pastor Dalton ByrnesHe may have fallen asleep but it is clear that nothing much is going on The pastor may be a lot of things but he isn’t having sex with his client’s wife Though she does seem very interested even if the attention is not reciprocated While one case seems to be drawing to a close Jack’s being there has led him to meeting Joe Crewes One look at Joe and Jack knows he sees a fellow veteran with his own demons Joe Crewes served in Korea and has a very complicated case for Jack Laramie if he is interestedWhat follows is a complicated tale set in 1956 interspersed with Jack’s memories of flying in a B 17 being shot down over Germany and the aftermath Those flashback sections are intense and are skillfully woven into the main storyline of a client who may or may not be helped by Jack The Girls of Bunker Pines The Drifter Detective Series is another solidly good read that works on all levels all the way to the end While it would obviously be best to read the series in order one could read this as a standalone before going back and picking up the other installments of so desired Author Garnett Elliott puts you in the moment with Jack and does not let go till the very endThe Girls of Bunker Pines The Drifter Detective SeriesGarnett ElliottBeat To A Pulphttpwwwbeattoapulpcom ISBN# 978 0991203949February 2014E Book also available in print104 pages119Material supplied by the publisher in exchange for my objective reviewKevin R Tipple ©2014

    ‘He looked about as worried as a houseplant’Jack Laramie lives in a horse box and carries around his grandfather’s gun as a companion He stumbles into Joe Crews at a prayer meeting Crews is an alcoholic veteran of the Korean War and he’s been invited to sell an investment into bomb proof underground shelters to ex servicemen Laramie immediately smells a rat and sees the long con that Crews has been sucked intoWhat lures the detective into digging deeper into the con is the need he feels to protect a fellow survivor We learn about Laramie’s wartime experience as a gunner in a US bomber and as a prisoner of war in sections of the story that are neatly woven into the taleIt’s not long before the heavies behind the Bunker Pines operation are uncovered and they’re not people to be messed with Unfortunately Laramie can’t help himselfThis story is really well handled The hard edges of the action are complimented by subtle layers of sentiment and bags of atmosphere Most impressive is the depth of character created within a fairly short spaceThis one’s for fans of detective fiction particularly those who hanker after work from a golden age A really strong novella

    It's a short one but very satisfying Jack Laramie helps a fellow vet ascertain whether an investment in a bunch of nuclear bunker homes is legit or dodgy as a horn on a horse and ends up in a whole bunch of trouble The book has a nostalgic glow to it set in the fifties not much foul language and the action doesn't soak you in gore That doesn't detract at all It barrels along has some fantastic language and punches you in the stomach at times A good read

    Superbly done noir Jack Laramie is the Drifter Detective and I'm so very glad I didn't drift past this one One cannot help but like the main character his client was sweet but naive and the opposition were suitably devoid of redeeming features The flashback to Jack's WWII experience was uite chillingIt was an immensely enjoyable tale and I'll certainly be reading in this series Highly recommended

Dancers with their hands in a long con game gone wrong Atom Age paranoia meets booze buckshot and buxom babes as Jack struggles to save a wayward soul who doesn't want saving and scraps with an unlikely enforcer from the Dallas Mob At over 17K words th Not awfulA weaker story in the Jack Laramie series which is a spin off of the Cash Laramie Gideon Miles westerns Like many of us he is just not the man his grandfather was Jack's flashbacks were well related and poiniant The story however had potential but was ruined buy an ending that had almost no resolution

Read The Girls of Bunker Pines

Is is the longest Drifter yet with riveting glimpses of Jack's past including the last moments of the B 17 Black Betty and the depredations of Stalag Luft Three One warning this is also the hardest boiled and features an ending not for the faint of hea
