The Private Eye in Fiction and Fact
From the lurid tales of pulp magazines, to the film noir screen, to the television series, the "thrilling adventures" of detectives and investigators have long been a staple of crime fiction entertainment. Compared to  fictional characters and the public perception, the real work of actual private investigators is often much more challenging and interesting.

How NOT to be a Private Investigator
