It's also a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend it.
I'm not sure how useful it would be to a writer outside of the United States, because it's very American in context. However, it does point you in the direction of questions you would need to ask about the similarities/differences in the various laws of your country of choice.
Ultimately, though, I found it incredibly interesting as a book about PIs, and not so much as a writing resource.

The book was okay but simply brings together the US experience so would work well in the US. But the rest of us 6.9 billion people will have to try to adapt. Read morePublished on May 3, 2013 by Graham Parks
