PENSACOLA, Fla. — Is your inner P.I. waiting to be released? Do you question your neighbors, rent Magnum P.I. reruns and have an obsession with dark corners and disguises? If so, John Krause’s recently re-released, “The Private Investigator’s Guide” (ISBN: 978-0-615-13411-6), may be just what the doctor ordered.

“The Private Investigator’s Guide” is the most comprehensive guide on the market. It provides the practical foundation for everyday applications in the area of training private investigators and teaches the novice P.I. how to get started in the business.

Private Investigator's Guide Why not learn from a pro? Krause is available for television, radio talk shows and script consulting for television programming, movies and novels. He frequently gives lectures, seminars, conducts book-signing appearances, and consults with anyone who is interested in learning how to set up and run their own private investigative agency.

“Most agencies can only provide minimal hands-on training to interns due to case deadlines,” Krause explains. “This practical, how-to guide will help with training and even seasoned investigators who may need a refresher course can benefit.”

“The Private Investigator’s Guide” is a how-to-guide from A-Z. It focuses on everything from basic administrative tasks and report writing to ruses and how to stay out of trouble.

An essential tool for any agency or intern, “The Private Investigator’s Guide” has been discussed on television and radio throughout the U.S. and on the Internet.

A private investigator for 20 years, Krause has a celebrated career. This knowledge and experience has allowed him to become a number two bestseller in the southeast in the legal, self-help category with major book retailer, Books-A-Million.

Krause has investigated a broad variety of cases ranging from child custody to criminal defense and has been involved in some very high-profile cases.

Available in paperback and on CD-ROM, the Private Investigator’s Guide includes a free demo version of ScenePD — software used by professionals on how to recreate accident and crime scenes.
