Three Reasons Why You'd Require A Private Detective For Security

Many people have a tendency to take advantage of the trust given to them, thus resulting to undesirable actions like deception and stealing. In case you're hesitant of the behaviours of your partner or personnel, then you may wish to start investigating their actions personally. However, it is better if you find a private detective in London for monitoring solutions. Such experts are well-coached in monitoring other people by making use of innovative tools to acquire essential proof of fraud. With their instruments and proficiencies, you will have a better possibility of exposing the truth as opposed to going through the monitoring yourself.

Are you considering to get the assistance of a private detective in London? Here's why you have to hire one:

1. To keep track of a dishonest spouse

Modern technology has made it less complicated for deceitful spouses to participate in infidelity. They are able to quickly speak with their lovers on their computer or smartphone without your knowledge. Furthermore, the call logs and messages can be easily erased, so you would not find out anything about the continuous relationship. If you see that your wife or husband is behaving suspiciously, then you must look for monitoring solutions from private detective in London. A lot of these detectives are highly-skilled in monitoring a dishonest husband or wife even from afar using developed technology including concealed cameras and telephone monitoring apparatus. Their solutions can reveal the truth and the proof they'd get are useful in court once you decide to seek a divorce.

2. To show dishonest employees

There are workers who exploit the generosity of their superior by engaging in illegal acts. For example, your worker may be constantly applying for sick leaves, but their social networking pictures reveal them having a great time in getaway spots. There are ways to confirm their reasons for absence like executing interviews whenever they come back to the workplace or requesting a medical certificate. Yet, if you still have suspicions, then a private detective in London can help you out. These detectives can obtain data which would exhibit what really took place within your employee’s doubtful sick leave.     

Furthermore, you should work with a private detective if you think that your personnel are stealing from your firm. Employee theft is definitely a significant issue, and it isn’t just limited to cash. Your fraudulent employees can even take other business investments such as supplies and manufacturing tools. Detectives can make use of hidden cameras and carry out surprise interviews on doubtful staff to know who to blame.

3. To uncover industrial espionage

There may be instances when the public suddenly becomes aware about your company’s confidential data like your plans for extension or proposed product layouts. In case you discover youself to be within this kind of situation, then you might be a victim of infiltration. Your competitors were able to eavesdrop on your conferences by planting hearing tools in your office or sending agents to act as visitors. A trusted private detective can carry out monitoring in your office to identify spies and protect your organisation secrets. Such investigators can observe covertly, so the spies wouldn't discover that they're being observed.

Security services from private detectives in London are extremely critical in identifying the reality behind suspicious actions. With their help, you can acquire all of the required facts to expose deceivers. Just be certain that you're availing of the services of trustworthy investigators so you can be guaranteed of acquiring comprehensive monitoring help.

Played to Death
Played to Death - B.V. Lawson

The first in a new series featuring "consultant criminologist" Scott Drayco, once a child-prodigy whose hopes of a great career as a concert pianist were dashed when his right arm was crushed by a car door during a car-jacking incident.


Now he is ex-FBI and working on his own. A grateful client has left him the old Opera House in a run-down west-coast resort named Cape Unity. A white elephant, he assumes, but as he makes plans to pay a visit and see about selling the place, he receives a request to act on behalf of a certain Oakley Keys, who lives right there in Cape Unity. They arrange to meet at the Opera House to discuss Oakley Keys' problem.


When Drayco arrives, he finds Keys lying on the stage, dead. Murdered and mutilated.


There is a good mix of characters, all the various types you would expect to find in such a setting plus some you wouldn't, and it is so well-plotted that I for one did not know whodunit till the very end. All right, it's a bit slow and chatty at times, but there are patches of very fine writing, and I would definitely recommend it to all who enjoy a small-town murder mystery with a visiting private eye who has to cope with the all-too-predictable small-town xenophobia.

Searching for Hope
Searching For Hope - Michael Joseph

Sam Carlisle, a private detective living and working in a fictitious town in East Anglia called Newgate, finds a homeless man dying in an alley beside a bar. The man's last words are "Help ... me ... find ...". The man had obviously been murdered but the police seem less than enthusiatic, so Sam, having no other work on hand at the moment, sets out to investigate the murder, and the meaning of the dying man's last words, on his own.


He soon finds himself in deep and dangerous waters.


It is not a bad read. I finished it quite happily. But despite the predictable tragedy in his past and the equally predicatable whisky addiction in his present, Sam is less than convincing. As is the East Anglian setting. I know East Anglia well, yet would never have realised the book was set there had the author not repeatedly informed me.


Let's be honest. Sam is a cardboard character and this East Anglia is a cardboard setting.


Why am I reviewing it, then? I almost never write even mildly negative reviews. (For the simple reason that if I'm not enjoying a book I don't waste any more of my precious reading time on it. I move on to one of the many other books I have sitting in piles around my flat or desperately trying to work their way up to the front page of my Kindle Reader.)


So what was it I liked about the book? The minor characters: many of them were original and there were some I could identify with. I always need that, and I couldn't identify with Sam at all.

First Star I See Tonight (Chicago Stars #8) by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Review
First Star I See Tonight: A Novel (Chicago Stars) by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (2016-08-23) - Susan Elizabeth Phillips

A star quarterback and a feisty detective play for keeps in this sporty, sexy, sassy novel—a long-awaited new entry in the beloved, award-winning, New York Times bestselling author’s fan-favorite Chicago Stars football series.

Piper Dove is a woman with a dream—to become the best detective in the city of Chicago. First job? Trail former Chicago Stars quarterback, Cooper Graham. Problem? Graham’s spotted her, and he’s not happy.

Which is why a good detective needs to think on her feet. “The fact is...I’m your stalker. Not full-out barmy. Just...mildly unhinged.”

Piper soon finds herself working for Graham himself, although not as the bodyguard he refuses to admit he so desperately needs. Instead, he’s hired her to keep an eye on the employees at his exclusive new nightclub. But Coop’s life might be in danger, and Piper’s determined to protect him, whether he wants it or not. (Hint: Not!) If only she weren’t also dealing with a bevy of Middle Eastern princesses, a Pakistani servant girl yearning for freedom, a teenager who just wants to fit in, and an elderly neighbor demanding Piper find her very dead husband.

And then there’s Cooper Graham himself, a legendary sports hero who always gets what he wants—even if what he wants is a feisty detective hell bent on proving she’s as tough as he is.

From the bustling streets of Chicago to a windswept lighthouse on Lake Superior to the glistening waters of Biscayne Bay, two people who can’t stand to lose will test themselves and each other to discover what matters most




I love me some Susan Elizabeth Phillips and this book is just great.

What happens here, that always happens in a Phillips' boo, is the hero and heroine come to deeply respect and value each other. They like and admire each other. They are also really hot for one another but that seems to follow this deep connection the Phillips does like nobody else. Sigh.

The hero and heroine a difficult people. They are cranky. I love them. They are both very witty and so much themselves. They meet in a moment where they are both struggling.

They both kick ass and are loyal and brave. But not so much with the emotionial bravery which lingers for a little longer than I would like.

The secondary characters are grand. We have the old crew show up. The opera singer needs her own romance please.

The Case of the Missing Servant
The Case of the Missing Servant - Tarquin Hall

Let's begin with an example of the book – and the author – in action (and modern Delhi in action!), something typical to get a feel of the book, the author and the place. Not to mention the protagonist, one Vish Puri, "India's most private investigator".


Here he is off to meet a contact at the Golden Greens Golf course, of which Puri was not a member although he would have liked to be. Not for the sake of playing (secretly he couldn't stand the game – the ball was always ending up in those bloody ponds), but for making contacts among India's new money, the BPO (Business Process Outsourcing)-cum-MNC (Multi-National Corporation) crowd. [...] In Delhi, all big deals were now being done on the putting greens. Playing golf had become as vital a skill for an Indian detective as picking a lock. In the past few years, Puri had had to invest in private lessons, a set of Titleist clubs and appropriate apparel, including Argyll socks.


His chauffeur, who rejoices in the name of Handbrake, needs to ask the way.

Soon after turning off the NOIDA expressway, Handbrake spotted a Vespa moped with a Domino's box on the back and pulled up next to it at a red light.

'Brother, where is Galden Geens Galfing?' he shouted in Hindi to the delivery boy over the sound of a noisy, diesel-belching Bedford truck.

His question was met with an abrupt upward motion of the hand and a questioning squint of the eyes.

'Galden Geens Galfing, Galden Geens Galfing,' repeated Handbrake.

The delivery boy's puzzlement suddenly gave way to comprehension: 'Aaah! Golden greens Galf Carse!'


'Sectorrr forty-tooo!'

'Brother! Where is forty-toooo sectorrr?'

'Near Tulip High School.'

'Where is Tulip High School?'

'Near Om Garden!'

Brother, where is Om Garden?'

The delivery boy scowled and shouted in an amalgam of English and Hindi: 'Past Eros Cinema, sectorrr ninteen! Turn right at traffic light to BPO Phase three! Enter farty-too through backside!'


I don't usually quote so much, but I love this. Suddenly I miss India and Delhi.


The contact Puri is to meet is a childhood friend who "had followed his father into the building business and, during the boom of the past ten years, made a fortune putting up low-cost multi-storey apartment blocks in Gurgaon and Dwarka.

Few industries are as dirty as the Delhi construction business and Rinku had broken every rule and then some. There was hardly a politician in north India he had not done a shady deal with; not a District Collector or senior police-wallah to whom he hadn't passed a plastic bag full of cash.

At home in Punjabi Bagh where he still lived in his father's house with his mother, wife and four children, Rinku was the devoted father and larger than life character who gave generously to the community, intervened in disputes and held the biggest Diwali party in the neighbourhood. But he also owned a secret second home, bought in his son's name, a ten-acre 'farmhouse' in Mehrauli. It was here that he entertained politicians and bureaucrats with gori prostitutes.


'Gori' in this context meaning white. Oh, yes.


And the case in this book?


A wealthy lawyer in Jaipur stands accused of murdering a young woman who worked as a maid in his family home. That is to say she worked for his wife (a prize bitch) and not for him. But because this lawyer has been crusading against corruption among the police and judiciary he is, to say the least, unpopular in many quarters. It transpires that there is actually no evidence whatever against him (the girl simply disappeared) but this will not save him. Only her reappearance can do that.


Vish Puri is charged with bringing that about. But how? All they know of her is her first name – Mary – and that, as the lawyer's wife, Mrs Kasliwal, puts it, she is a "Bihari-type".


When Puri asks her to elaborate she tells him 'So many servants these days are coming from Bihar and other such backward places. Naturally I assumed she was from there, also, being so dark.'

'She was very dark, is it?'

'Like kohl, Mr Puri,' she said with disdain. 'Like kohl.'


Wonderful. And after reading it you have a picture of modern Delhi in your mind that is comparable to the Victorian London conjured up by reading Sherlock Holmes.
