Interesting, especially for writers of mysteries or crime stories. Lots of good tips on making your characters believable and that investigators actually investigate realistically.

I loved this book, it was very enlightening about what private eyes actually do.
If you ever need the services of a private eye than this is for you.

This was an enjoyable and informative book. Lots of examples from real cases. I'm sure I will refer to it many times while writing my mysteries! Recommended for anyone who wants to know how it's done in real life!

As a retired LE officer and now a new Private Eye I am reading books on how to do investigations in the private sector.
This book was full of ideas and 'how to's' to get the job done.

Hey, if you're going to write spooky mysteries of killer thrillers, you must know the craft. So save yourself being investigated or arrested, thrown in jail, and bonded out or convicted. Just read this book and invite your imagination to soar outside the bars on the window. PI Jake Knight from Sonoma has read this book three times. At the last sheep birth I attended with him, he quoted from it.
That PI is smarter than me. Great book. Great read. - Peter Prasad, author, GURL-POSSE KIDNAP.

I am an attorney who uses PIs from time to time, but about four years ago I had to question my use of PIs ever since my former companies PIs overstepped their authority. This is a great book that details the mentality of a PI. Knowing what they think allows me to give them tighter parameters in their charge. The PI is an extension of the attorney. What the PI does reflects on you and your client. Accordingly, now that I better understand what they do, how they think it makes it easier to use them for my cases.

I usually don’t read books like this but wanted to try something new for a change and I have always been interested in PI’s. Glad I picked this one to read. Wow, this is some really interesting stuff. I think even if you are not interested in PI’s , a lot of this information should be read as I was totally unaware of some of these tips like email security and blocking calls. I thought to block a call it was all or nothing. There are wonderful links included throughout this book to help learn even more. This author really went above and beyond explaining all areas of PI’s.

I've always found private investigators or "private eyes" to be utterly fascinating since I was introduced to famous PI characters like Sherlock Holmes and Dick Tracy. So when I ran across "How Do Private Eyes Do That?" I knew it would be a fun read and it really was (as well as quite educational). Colleen Collins delves into the world of PIs from the mindset and just how a private eye gets things done to the fields and specializations that PIs can be attached to. From a writing standpoint, the author has creating a well-written, well-organized and thoroughly engrossing book that manages to be educational while entertaining the reader with the glamorous life of a private eye.

I have to admit that what I learned did point me in a great direction for my future writing projects as just getting a closer look at the world of private eyes gave a few wonderful concepts for a book I've been contemplating. Overall, whether you're a writing looking to understand the PI world a bit better or you're just looking for a bit of fun reading, "How Do Private Eyes Do That?" is a information packed book that puts the fun in private eye.
