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.
A Tulsa businessman engaged in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife was dismayed to arrive at her home one day to visit his children and find the house deserted, a for sale sign in the front yard, and the woman and children gone without a trace.
Months went by, and the man heard nothing from his children, though a court had awarded him custody of them. Sick with worry, he hired Glanz to find the children, whose trail had long since gone cold. Developing and following an unlikely lead generated from an innocent-looking postcard, the private investigator flew to Australia, and quickly and discreetly located the children without tipping off their mother to his presence.
Glanz contacted the children’s father, and the relieved man caught the next plan to Australia to take part in their recovery. Upon his arrival, Glanz calmly engineered the children’s joyful reunion with their father and oversaw the family’s safe return to the United States – a journey that had taken them as far from Oklahoma as they could go.
