It was fun to read and I figured out the ending  but the series could really benefit from a fact checker.

I don’t think there is a single bit of evidence that could be used in court, so egregious was the disregard of the law. It makes no sense that a police officer would allow–even request–a private investigator to accompany him on official police business not to mention the other civilians who are permitted to visit–and break into–crime scenes, including interrogations, searches and next-of-kin notifications.
