Book Review: How Do Private Eyes Do That? by Colleen Collins
|4 stars, 1 review|
Colleen Collinsabout this book: Besides being a multi-published author, I have also worked as a professional private investigator for the past decade. In this profession, I've received many questions about how to conduct investigations, which I answer in this nonfiction book. For example, I offer tips for tracking a person or lost pet, locating the name behind an unknown telephone number, researching recorded family trusts, understanding what a prospective employer will look for in a background check, accessing hidden information in the deep web and much, much more.
At the end of this book is an excerpt from another nonfiction book I co-wrote with former PI and current criminal defense attorney Shaun Kaufman, HOW TO WRITE A DICK: A GUIDE FOR WRITING FICTIONAL SLEUTHS FROM A COUPLE OF REAL-LIFE SLEUTHS.
HOW DO PRIVATE EYES DO THAT? is for the armchair detective who would like to know a few tricks of the trade; writers crafting mystery, suspense and thriller stories, and readers simply curious about the field of private investigations.
• "A must have for any writer serious about crafting authentic private eyes. Collins knows her stuff."
— Lori Wilde, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
• "Real-life private investigator Colleen Collins spills the beans."
— The Thrilling Detective

True investigationsIt's always nice to see something written by an actual investigator with experience rather than just a 'wanna be'. I've been an investigator for 25 years and keep saying that I'll write a book myself, maybe one day I'll get around to it. Good read well produced. [by Stuart G]
