Book Description:

Semifinalist Best Indie Books of 2012, The Kindle Book Reviews

"A brilliant mystery novel...I eagerly await the return of the Zen Man."
~Becky Sherriff, The Kindle Book Review

"Move over Sam Spade, Nick and Nora; make room for a Denver who-dun-it, Colleen Collins’s The Zen Man. Brilliant and fast-paced writing. I couldn’t put it down."
~ Donnell Ann Bell,
 Award-Winning Author of The Past Came Hunting

"Readers of mystery are going to love Colleen Collins's novel THE ZEN MAN. It is a fast paced who-done-it that will keep you turning pages and guessing to the very end."
~Mrs. Mommy Booknerd's Book Reviews

"Not only do the pages fly by with the action and plot twists, but the characters will keep you guessing their next move as well. I was thoroughly entertained and can't wait to read the next installment of this fabulous gumshoe novel!"
~ Wendy Hines, Minding Spot book reviews

***Book Blurb***

Just as washed-up criminal defense attorney, life-long Deadhead (nickname “The Zen Man”), and current PI Rick Levine decides to get relicensed as a lawyer, he’s charged with killing one and ends up in the slammer with a half-mil bail.

Released on bond, Rick and his girlfriend Laura have 30 days to find the real killer. In the course of their investigations, they dig for dirt among Denver’s shady legal backrooms to its tony corporate centers. Dodging bullets, a kidnapping, trumped-up charges and the FBI's unwanted intervention, Rick and Laura continue tracking key suspects who have motive...eventually learning that true redemption begins at home.

***End of Book Blurb***

“I loved every single word of The Zen Man!”
~ Delores Fossen, USA Today Best-selling Author

"Rick and Laura are incredibly charming and likable...and the book’s mystery is well structured with clues and red herrings doled out steadily to move the plot along and keep things interesting... can’t wait for the return of The Zen Man."
~Book Reviews by Elizabeth A. White

"The Zen Man is an homage and update of Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora Charles, a well-paced mix of banter, action, and New Age philosophizing."
~ Gerald So, owner-moderator of DetecToday for fans of the private eye genre

-Author has been published by Dorchester (as Cassandra Collins), Harlequin, etc.

Quote:
“A must have for any writer serious about crafting authentic private eyes. Collins knows her stuff.”
- Lori Wilde, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

"Real-life private investigator Colleen Collins spills the beans."
~The Thrilling Detective

"Let's just say the technology of the Kindle Fire takes this book to a new level, giving you insight on how to do deep searches, purchasing spy equipment, and links to must know web sites and blogs to give you the inside scoop of being a PI." ~ Kipp Poe Speicher

How Do Private Eyes Do That? is a compilation of articles about private investigations written by Colleen Collins, a professional private investigator. Its topics are geared to readers interested in the world of PIs, including fiction writers, researchers, investigators and those simply curious about the profession.

A supplement to the book is a chapter from How to Write a Dick: A Guide to Writing Fictional Sleuths from a Couple of Real-Life Sleuths, co-authored by Colleen Collins. This chapter describes numerous specializations in the field of private investigations, including legal investigations, infidelity investigations, pet detection, insurance investigations, personal injury investigations, executive protection and more.

“If you're looking for the lowdown on private investigations, this is it. Packed with details and insights. A must-have for anybody writing private-eye fiction and for anybody who's curious about what being a private-eye is really like.”
- Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series and many other novels in multiple genres

"I've read articles written by other private investigators which are tough to understand because the person rambles on and on...in this book, Collins sticks to the topic and explains things well." ~ PI Guy

"My mom checked out the book and got some ideas for how to find a second counsin she lost contact with a long time ago, so the book is for people who aren't writers, too." ~ Zoe
