Our book store offers an extensive collection of books for private investigators, police officers, and security professionals. You’ll find a wide variety of books, reference manuals, how-to guides, ebooks and more related to the investigation industry.

Some examples of the detective book categories we offer include: Private Investigation, Crime Scene Investigation, Background Check, Accident Reconstruction, and much more.

In addition, you’ll even find detective fiction novels, mystery fiction and crime fiction novels from such writers as John Grisham, James Patterson, and J.K. Rowling (yes, she writes detective novels too).

Both novice and experienced detectives can use textbooks to learn new investigative techniques and disciplines as an alternative to expensive private eye training courses or university degree programs. Even fictional novels can offer insights and ideas that can be applied to real-world situations.

Investigative specialists, crime scene specialists, and forensic scientists can use this collection to build their own library of reference materials.

Most of the P.I. bestsellers in this bookstore are available at the lowest price through Amazon.com for under $30, which often includes free shipping.
