Saving the Evangelist

Kathryn Kuhlman was a highly regarded televangelist and faith healer whose friends included religious figures ranging from Oral Roberts to the pope. She was known and beloved by viewers around the world.

Anyone who thinks it’s easy making a living as a private investigator has been watching too much television or reading too many mystery novels. Having watched his competitors come and go for 40 years, Gary Glanz knows that better than anybody. To him, there is only one measure of success in this business, and that is producing results for the client – for every client, every time.

Case Details

Kathryn Kuhlman was a highly regarded televangelist and faith healer whose friends included religious figures ranging from Oral Roberts to the pope. She was known and beloved by viewers around the world.

The two had written a libelous and unfounded account of their time in her employ, and when they threatened Kuhlman with its publication if she didn’t extend their contract under generous terms, she hired Gary Glanz to intercede before her reputation could be unjustly destroyed.

Trailing one of the men to a Newport Beach, Calif., shopping center parking lot, he deftly intercepted the only copy of the manuscript and, hours later, handed it over to a deeply relieved, and very grateful, Kuhlman.
