Wide Spot in the Road by Wayne D. Dundee

Vagabond P.I. Jack Laramie stops in the remote town of Buele’s Corner for a bite to eat. Before he finishes his bowl of chili, he gets caught up in a tornado of events that starts with a panicked, young couple racing into the diner to use the phone to call for help—a menacing motorcycle gang, The Deguelloes, is chasing after them. When the couple discovers the phone is out of order, Jack steps in to help them fend off the gang who’s accusing the couple of running some of their fellow bikers off the road.

Wide Spot in the Road is the fourth novella in The Drifter Detective series, following on the heels of The Girls of Bunker Pines, Hell Up in Houston, and the eponymous debut, The Drifter Detective.
