Daniel B. Young is a fifty-eight year old retired private investigator. He is also an ex-teenage gang leader, Vietnam-era Navy sailor, steel mill laborer, overhead crane operator, and a computer programmer [when the mainframe was still as big as a garage].
He began working for detective agencies as an armed security officer in Gary, East Chicago, and Whiting Indiana. He has also worked in Calumet City, Chicago, and the south Chicago suburbs of Blue Island, Chicago Heights, and South Holland. He progressed to working as an investigator, executive bodyguard, and undercover operative. He was one of four security officers who were brought in to clean up the [at the time] second largest truck stop [with parking for 300 semi-tractor trailers] in the U.S. that was rife with prostitution, theft, and drug dealing. That assignment was successfully completed in six months.
After ten years of experience he was granted his own Indiana State license as a private investigator for another ten years. He gained his first three attorney clients by offering to take their most unproductive cases for the payment of one dollar to demonstrate his abilities. He discovered evidence beneficial to the attorney’s clients in each case. His last four years as an investigator he worked exclusively for attorneys.
An auto accident [caused by a drunken driver] left him with spinal damage that forced his retirement. He could no longer give the work the energy he felt it deserved and refused to do poor or spotty work. In his twenty-year security and investigative career he made 367 felony arrests, detained several hundreds more [for police custody] on misdemeanor charges, and retrieved seven fugitives [on behalf of the victims; he is not a fan of bounty hunting]. He lives with his wife of thirty-seven years and proofreader Angel. He has had short fiction published online in “The Murder Hole”. “Without a Clue”, “Nefarious: Tales of Mystery”, “Mysterical-E”, “Quantum Muse”, and
“Web Mystery Magazine”.
