Since the trial of O.J. Simpson, the "profession" of private investigation has risen to a new level of respect among both the legal community and the public at large because the success of O.J.'s " Dream Team" was largely a result of the brilliant work done by defense investigators.

Private investigators are often called upon to provide information for cases that are not criminal or when regular law enforcement cannot fit a more in-depth investigation into its criminal caseload. Investigators are called upon to conduct surveillance, asset searches, and background checks on individuals and corporations.

While most books on private investigation tackle specific field-related topics, Practical Handbook for Private Investigators provides the first comprehensive coverage. Rory McMahon, a recognized leader in the industry, clears up many misconceptions about the world of private investigation as he guides experienced private investigators, as well as those wishing to enter the field. This practical handbook is a compendium of the work performed, with descriptions of the various types of investigations, case studies, and practical tips. Besides showing you how to conduct every kind of investigation, the book also offers advice on how to testify, how to set up practice, and how to get licensed.

Review:

...one of the most comprehensive basic educational investigative textbooks... An experienced teacher can plan and execute a well-rounded college level instructional program with this book as a tool. ...a no-nonsense, how-to, educational text. ...Coupled with a thorough review of setting up and managing an agency, this book is [also] a valuable addition to the library of any serious investigator. ...McMahon has helped to carve out a niche for the investigative textbook that ... [reflects] the true work of the practicing private investigator.

- Kitty Hailey, CLI

If there is a page in this book that doesn't offer usable, straight-forward, information for both the neophyte and the experienced investigator, I have yet to find it. ... This book will easily become the 'Bible' of the investigation industry - a compact detailed book that should be a mandatory textbook for beginners, and a welcome and constant companion to the experienced investigator... Cluesonline congratulates Rory McMahon for writing the book that has been so sorely needed in our profession!
