No Ordinary Day

If you follow me on Twitter (@anonymouspi), Dear Reader, you might have been aware of an upcoming job I was tasked with. Specifically, effecting an 'at risk' repossession warrant - and you know just how much I hate doing those, right?

But it wouldn't be a 'proper job' if there weren't some aggravating factors or complications, right?

Right. So the occupants of the address were gang members and, in particular, members of a major organised street gang involved in a variety of illegal enterprises and known for their use of violence.

Particularly unlikely to put on the jug and offer us tea and biscuits.


What could go wrong?

So Let's Talk About Money

Recently, Dear Reader, there was an article posted by Susanna Speier on average PI salaries in the United States. Susanna also looked at salaries reported by indeed.com, payscale.com, rileyguide.com, privateinvestigator.edu, glassdoor.com, and even Federal Government publications.

The results vary, but Susanna concludes that several sources have agreed that the median salary for a PI sits at around US$44,500 (as of 2014).

And that got me thinking.

Mrs Rountree, Liar

Welcome back to 2016, Dear Reader, whether it be a happy one or not. For the record, and probably somewhat unsurprisingly to you, my New Year's Eve turned out to be a bit of a downer.

Consistency is king, as they say.

But we're not here to hear maudlin tales of my cruelly dashed hopes and dreams, no. Well, not today at any rate.

Instead, I have the curious case of Mrs Rountree (not her real name), an unashamed trickster and would-be criminal mastermind. If only she understood that a clue of what I do lies in my title: investigator. You know, like looking into stuff and shit?
