Everything You Wanted to Know about PIs But Were Afraid to Ask

Jeff Cathcart, former private investigator, was born in the San Francisco Bay Area, but grew up in the sunny climes of Guam, Hawaii, Yap, and Palau. His primary occupation has been in facilities and purchasing, but in his younger days he was an “undercover man” for a private investigator. You may have seen Jeff playing the Phantom of the Opera at the Great Dickens Christmas Fair, or on the cover of his wife’s debut novel.
