5.0 out of 5 stars  “Just the facts, ma’am.”

By Kevin D. Murray on May 30, 2016

Accidental P.I. is unlike many other autobiographical books written by private investigators, ex-spooks, and other investigative types. There is no hype, no puffery, and no self aggrandizement. “Just the facts, ma’am.” And, the facts are what makes this a fascinating read. You get to know Dave and his wife Linda personally. The author writes like he is in the room, telling you their story, personally. You’ll come away feeling you now know the true inside story of a very accomplished PI. The added bonus… learning the story behind the story of the high-profile, in-the-news cases these two have handled. Need a summer vacation book? Investigate this one.

I borrowed this from a local cafe that has books on the table. I had glanced at it while waiting for my lunch and got caught up in it so they let me take it home to finish. It was a very easy, interesting, and light read. I enjoyed it a lot. And I learned a lot of interesting things. Thanks to the author!
