What happens when a Drifter stops drifting?

Two-Trick Pony features the first and last (?) cases of wandering P.I. Jack Laramie, bookending his not-so-glamorous career. In 'The Big Bronc Hit,' a fresh-faced young Jack travels to Amarillo, eager to earn his money on a foray into Texas horse country-until he learns the true nature of his 'investigation.' Rodeo clowns, a broke-down bronc-riding champ, and a mystery woman round out the cast, with a final confrontation among the rocky crags of Palo Duro Canyon.

In 'The Vinyl Coffin,' an older, more jaded Jack makes his next-to-last mistake when he decides to settle down in Dallas, finally opening the detective office he's been dreaming of. But quitting a vagabond's life doesn't do much for the middle-aged blues, and after a nightcap at the infamous Carousel Club that leaves him face to face with an old nemesis, he finds himself helping a faded star already down the path to self-destruction. Does Jack get pulled in too, or does he rally in time to save both of them? Well, it is his 'last' case . . .
