I, Spy

I, Spy, just released from Macmillan Audio, is a first-rate handbook on how to perform basic investigations. There are many reasons (cheating spouse; searching for birth parents; combating a stalker; involved in litigation) when every day folks might temporarily have to become Perry Mason’s Paul Drake – analyzing and observing, looking for the relevant facts. In turn, Daniel Ribacoff (CEO of the International Investigative Group and a trained polygraph examiner), provides a primer on the fundamentals of the investigative process. In I, Spy, Ribacoff delineates the dos and don’ts of surveillance; the basics on how to conduct a stakeout; how to see the sign-posts that say you’re being lied to; how to find people; how to know if you’re on a stalker’s list; what you can learn from a garbage pile; and how to live outside the mainstream. Additionally, this nuts-and-bolts text on the investigative process is augmented by real-life stories from Ribacoff’s quarter-century in the business. Expertly narrated by Fred Berman, whose sharp and erudite delivery demonstrates in real-time why he’s won the Audiophile Earphone Award five times. 6 hours on 5 CDS.
