My client is a professional private investigator. Her name is Faith, she comes from Edinburgh. Faith doesn’t like the term private detective, she prefers the term professional private investigator.
Faith wears black. She is very quiet. When still, she is very very still. Blink and she’s gone, going about the business of solving problems and without anyone ever knowing.
Faith appears when you need her, lightening the load and bringing peace of mind.
Faith asked me to assist her one evening, she had been hired by an anxious wife who was concerned that her husband’s relationship with his business partner was more than just professional. So assist I did and a delicious meal I had too. You see the husband was meeting the business partner at a very posh hotel halfway between Glasgow and Edinburgh and my role for the evening was to ensure Faith’s presence was low profile simply by keeping her company while she kept a very professional eye on the husband and the partner. It all looked innocent enough to me but then I don’t know what to look for. It was the feet that gave it away. The handshakes were firm and businesslike but when the partner entered the room the husband’s feet did a jig under the table, so delighted he was to see him.
What makes Faith so good at her job and fascinating to be around is her knowledge of people. Yeah she knows the basics of the trade like parking the surveillance vehicle under a street light to obscure the occupants but its her experience and length of service that make her unique. She carries with her an air of calmness, confidence and lightening quick reflexes capable of handling any situation. She also understands that it is people’s lives that she is dealing with. By the time you need Faith you or your relationship or may be your business is in trouble, trouble that Faith can handle to bring you peace of mind.
My role for the evening was simple but when Faith needs more professional backup she calls on her brother Keith, also a professional private investigator from Edinburgh. The calling to be a detective must run in families.
What about your family? Does it have a tradition of entering the same profession?
