Ethan Reckless

Created by Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips It's Los Angeles in the 1980s, and former sixties radical and current troubleshooter (or is that troublemaker?)  ETHAN RECKLESS is on the prowl, going down mean streets Chandler could never have imagined; streets teeming with sex, and drugs and rock'n'roll, filled with more than a dollop of male wish … Continue reading Ethan Reckless

Hannibal Jones

Created by Austin S. Camacho "I'm not really a detective, although I do have a private investigator's license. And I'm not a bodyguard, although I have been known to protect people from danger.

John J. MacShayne

Created by Michael Gleason Kenny Rogers as a P.I.? Some folks should really know when to fold 'em. In 1994, NBC unleashed the popular country singer as Las Vegas casino head of security guy JOHN J. MacSHAYNE, as part of the mixed bag of rejuvenated characters from the past and a few new ones to … Continue reading John J. MacShayne

Jefferson Keyes (Cool Million)

Created by Larry Cohen “I’m not a detective. I simply look for solutions to rather large problems.” JEFFERSON KEYES (played by James Farentino) was an enterprising former CIA agent who set himself up in business as a private eye (although he prefers "troubleshooter"), willing to take any case or solve any problem--for a flat fee … Continue reading Jefferson Keyes (Cool Million)

Wyatt Storme

Created by W.L. Ripley And a-hunting we will go... Bow-hunter and Vietnam vet WYATT STORME is a former Dallas Cowboy wide receiver who walked away from football at his peak, fed up with the politics of the NFL, to become a "freelance troubleshooter." Then again, Wyatt's a bit of a recluse, anyway--he prefers hunting out in … Continue reading Wyatt Storme

Lafayette Muldoon

Created by William Brengle Pseudonym of Howard Browne (1907-1999) LAFAYETTE MULDOON is the troubleshooter for a real estate company who appeared in several short stories by William Brengle (actually Howard Browne of Paul Pine fame).

Fiddler

Created by A.E. Maxwell (Ann and Evan Maxwell) Another one-named P.I. who managed quite a following for a while is FIDDLER, whose stomping ground is the sunny climes of southern California. It's there that he's set himself up as a somewhat low-key, yet quite lethal troubleshooter and sometime-investigator. He's a big lug, 6'2", with a … Continue reading Fiddler

Joe “The Bouncer” Brody

Created by David Gordon An eye is an eye is an eye. Except when he isn't. But I think most visitors to this site won't mind if I cut this JOE "THE BOUNCER" BRODY guy a little slack... As a former Black Ops Specialist turned smart-ass strip club bouncer (and reluctant part-time fixer for the … Continue reading Joe “The Bouncer” Brody

Myron Bolitar

Created by Harlan Coben One of the most entertaining series to pop out of the nineties features mild-mannered amateur sleuth (and former FBI investigator) sports agent MYRON BOLITAR, a man who by all rights shouldn't even be listed on these pages. What can I say? Nope, he's not a private eye in any traditional sense, … Continue reading Myron Bolitar

Eddie G.

Created by Robert J. Randisi (1951 --) All things considered, long-time pit boss at the Las Vegas Sands Brooklyn-born EDDIE GIANELLI would probably rather cruise some broads or just chill with his Rat Pack pals Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. But as de facto troubleshooter for the world … Continue reading Eddie G.
