Covington Stone - Book Image Did Not Load!A struggling PI (Covington Stone) tries everything to get the business he dreams of.

After attending an annual convention to try to drum up business, he gets a break in the form of a jewel heisting case when a mysterious woman comes into his life pretending to be his partner and letting their new client know that as well. You can call them Crime Dramas, Private Investigator Shows, Police Shows or any other name you can think of, the point is that the 1970’s & 1980s was full of them and many were just incredible to watch! If you’re like me, you couldn’t (and still can’t) get enough of all the great prime-time detective and action. They had it all—great drama, thrilling action, slapstick/screwball comedy, charming good-looking leading men and women, cheesy 1-liners, breaking the 4th wall, cross-over shows, character development, recurring villains, unique plot lines, unmatched acting, a bountiful mix of genres, voiceovers/narations, and more. Some people might moan and groan about how unrealistic some of the situations in those shows were. So what? Roll with it! It’s fun escapism - embrace the absurd and enjoy it. Some of the shows did very effectively strive for realism.

To bring back their amazing works to TV is tough because they don’t make good shows like these anymore, and forget about the movie adaptations! It’s time to bring these shows back and make amazing kindle books, it’s the least anyone can do to pay respect to some of the greatest shows ever, and keep their history and memories alive.
