"The simplest questions are the most difficult."

So, I never really paid much attention earlier (and who reads biographies anyway?) but I recently became aware from a post on The Thrilling Detective Blog that that old father of the Beat movement, William Burroughs, was briefly a private detective.

Very briefly.

I guess the role would be more that of a store detective rather than a private investigator, but a bit of artistic licence is entirely appropriate.

So with that in mind, here is some advice from Burroughs himself.
