The subject of pretexting was, I think, the most important in this book. A successful pretext will save lots of resources for other needed areas such as expensive surveillance. I think a good private investigator will use all the techniques required to be cost efficient, enabling lengthier and more complex engagements.
This is a perfect book for those wanting to become private investigators. It's useful information for just about anybody as well.
I do offer one complaint: the second edition is missing a chapter from the first, entitled "Working the Cases", which covers investigating crime scenes. Why the author decided to drop this chapter I do not know, because I feel it is an invaluable skill-set for the private investigator--particularly for those who choose to work with criminal defense attorneys.
Even with that caveat, I feel the book is more than worth it's purchase price. Thank you, Mr. Brown.
